3. Lernen und Gedächtnis im Alter

verfasst von : V. Schumacher, M. Martin

Erschienen in: Gedächtnisstörungen

Verlag: Springer Berlin Heidelberg

Zusammenfassung

Lernen und Gedächtnis sind zentrale Voraussetzungen für menschliches Erleben, Verhalten, Identität und Persönlichkeit. Wir sind somit das Produkt aus unseren Lernerfahrungen und unseren Erinnerungen. Aus diesem Grund ist für viele Menschen der Erhalt der Lernfähigkeit und des Gedächtnisses bis ins hohe Alter von großer Relevanz. Um Lernen und Gedächtnis im Alter besser verstehen zu können, ist es wichtig zu wissen, wie sie sich über die Lebensspanne verändern und wie stark sie miteinander zusammenhängen. Deshalb werden im Folgenden zuerst diese zwei Konzepte in Bezug zueinander gesetzt und danach unabhängig voneinander genauer erläutert. Abschließend werden aus den Befunden resultierende Interventionsmöglichkeiten aufgezeigt und die wichtigsten Erkenntnisse kurz zusammengefasst.
