and I had a blast editing it, and Mark did a tremendous job getting it all wrapped up.
The eBook contains some of the latest research in both healthy and pathological aging from around the world, on topics including vision, memory, attention, neural maps, multisensory integration, and more. And best of all, like all publications, it's all open source, so anyone can stay up to date with the latest research.
From the introduction to the book:
Our understanding of visual perception and visual cognition has advanced considerably over the last decades. The effects of ageing on visual perception and visual cognition are less well understood. This research topic will feature state-of-the-art approaches to determining the effects of ageing on visual perception, visual attention, visual memory and visually guided behaviour. Studies using methods that incorporate psychophysics, eye movements, electrophysiology, structural and functional neuroimaging, as well as computational modelling are welcome. In addition to the focus on how ageing effects normal vision, the topic will also include studies on the effects of pathological ageing in the retina (e.g., age-related macular degeneration) and the brain (e.g., neurodegenerative disorders) on vision and visual cognition.
