Cognitive Development and Aging

Cognitive development is concerned in the field of childhood neurological and psychological development. Specifically, cognitive development is assessed based on the level of conception, perception, information processing, and language as an indicator of brain development. Cognitive development advances with age, human awareness and understanding of the world increases from infancy to childhood, and then again into adolescence. The process of cognitive development was first described by Jean Piaget, in his Theory of Cognitive Development. Cognitive aging is the study in basic advances of learning and memory along with the complex higher-order advances of language and intellectual competence or executive functioning. Much of the literature in this field has been concerned with explaining the mechanism of cognitive decline with advancing age.
