Question and answer
4. Why is novel problem-solving particularly difficult in late adulthood?
Just as age-related changes in brain structure and function are not uniform across the whole brain or across individuals, age-related changes in cognition are not uniform across all cognitive domains or across all older individuals. [ The basic cognitive functions most affected by age are attention and memory. Neither of these are unitary functions, however, and evidence suggests that some
aspects of attention and memory hold up well with age while others show significant declines. ]
