Aging-related changes in visual sensory processing, visual perception, and visuospatial cognition are well documented and contribute to substantial disability in the older adult population. This chapter reviews neuropsychological and neurobiological bases of disorders of face recognition, form perception, object recognition, mental/spatial imagery, spatial memory, and environmental navigation, and discusses how the aging process affects functional brain systems underlying these complex disorders.
