The developmental psychologist Ulman Lindenberger, one of the world's leading researchers in cognitive gerontology, has redefined the potential and limits of cognitive aging in an impressive number of studies combining approaches from neuroscience, gerontology and developmental psychology. Prof. Lindenberger was able to prove, for instance, that the mental ability of older people is determined to a large extent by their own behaviour, rather than natural factors such as age, and can therefore be improved. The results of his research, have also been incorporated into practical programmes and, in view of the current demographic changes, they are of great socio-political importance (Source: Berlin School for Mind & Brain).
