"International Journal of School and Cognitive Psychology (IJSCP), aims to publish novel discoveries related to cognition, memory, perception etc. Cognitive psychology is an interdisciplinary field whose main aim is to study the thinking mechanisms of humans leading to cognizance. It covers a wide variety of subjects concerning all the different aspects of cognition, ranging from biological and experimental studies to formal analysis. Contributions from the fields of psychology, neuroscience is welcome in this journal provided that they have some bearing on the functioning of the mind. In addition, the journal serves as a forum for discussion of social and political aspects of cognitive science.
There is now a great deal of evidence to show that memory is not one single function but may be described in terms of different memory systems that show differential effects of aging. Recent theoretical models of cognitive aging have implicated increased intra-individual variability as a critical marker of decline. It was hypothesized that higher levels of variability would be indicative of age-related and disease-related memory deficits. The neuro imaging findings obtained to date support models emphasizing the role of prefrontal cortex in age-related changes in memory functioning, especially for episodic memory retrieval. In general, neural activation associated with episodic memory encoding is regionally similar for younger and older adults but relatively lower in magnitude for older adults. The practical implications of the research findings and ideas include the point that clinical memory assessments should incorporate tests designed to measure the different aspects of memory functioning.
