Abstract

Although there is a growing interest in improving cognitive abilities in older adults, there has been considerable variation in how different cognitive domains have been conceptualized over time. Broadly, neuropsychology assumes that cognitive processes are fundamentally similar across humankind (Nell, 1999), and as such, the manner in which cognitive processes are assessed is similar across cultures (Rivera Mindt, Byrd, Saez, & Manly, 2010).
