Neurogerontology tells the story of how the aging brain affects all aspects of cognition and physical performance. It comprehensively links the principles and substance of neuroscience with gerontology and psychology. Written largely from a behavioral neuroscience perspective, Neurogerontology explores the functional relationships between the central nervous system and psychological phenomena of aging, including perception, arousal, learning, cognition, and motor behavior. Willot emphasizes healthy aging, but dementia and other pathological conditions are discussed when relevant.

This evidence-based approach to the neuroscience of aging makes this a valuable reference for professionals, as well as an informative textbook for students in gerontology courses.
