Ich beschäftige mich in der vorliegenden Arbeit mit dem Lebensabschnitt des Alters und den darin stattfindenden kognitiven Veränderungen, speziell denen der Intelligenz. Ich betrachte das „späte mittlere modify“ (50 bis sixty five Jahre) sowie den Bereich des „Alters“ (65 – eighty Jahre).

Das generalisierte Altersbild, welches die allgemeine Einstellung der Gesellschaft gegenüber älteren Menschen wiedergibt, wird in der Forschung als vorwiegend negativ gekennzeichnet. Es herrschen unfavourable Beschreibungen bzgl. eines ‚psycho-physischen Abbaus und Verlustes‘ bei älteren Menschen vor. Der Ältere erscheint häufiger als krank, behindert, müde, sexuell desinteressiert, in seinen Denkabläufen gehemmt, vergesslich, unorientiert, rigide, isoliert und unproduktiv. (Müller, 1988). Außen vorgelassen wie genau diese Stereotype über das regulate entstehen, prüfen wir, wie negativ die Entwicklung wirklich getönt ist oder ob mehr kognitives capability in älteren Menschen steckt als gemein hin angenommen.
