In this presentation, four key research themes will be highlighted. First, the underlying structure (or intactness) of executive functions will be examined in relation to levels of cognitive status. Second, the moderating effects of lifestyle engagement and sample heterogeneity (e.g., maintenance and change in cognitive status) will be discussed. Third, research on everyday memory compensation and person-level resources will be presented. The fourth theme focuses on intra-individual variability as a viable index of cognitive impairment in Parkinson’s Disease.
