Advances in understanding the cognitive neuroscience of aging with multivariate methods
Aging is associated with many structural and function brain changes that are thought to contribute to cognitive decline across the lifespan. Recently, multivariate analysis methods have begun to elucidate age-related differences in neural patterns that may contribute to age-related cognitive decline. To highlight recent findings in the mechanistic understanding of cognitive aging, we invite submissions to a Special Issue on this exciting topic. We invite papers that use multivariate pattern analyses of neuroimaging data, including structural MRI, fMRI and EEG data, as well as multimodal neuroimaging approaches to include those combined with TMS and/or eye tracking methods, to investigate the neural underpinnings of cognitive aging. We invite submissions from studies investigating healthy and abnormal aging across all cognitive domains (e.g., memory, cognitive control, perception, decision making, etc.).

Interested authors should submit a letter of intent to Nancy Dennis ([email protected]) or Josh Koen ([email protected]) by January 30, 2021. The letter should include: (1) a tentative title and list of authors and (2) a 300–500 word description of the proposed submission. Decisions whether or not to submit a full article will be made within a month, and submitted articles (expected after another three months) will then undergo full peer review.
