Expertise Research Contributions to Cognitive Aging : Examples from the Domain of Chess

In this presentation I will outline a variety of approaches to understanding expertise. I’ll present a framework for examining how societal and individual factors influence skilled performance, then discuss growth curve analyses of skill acquisition functions, questionnaire approaches to assessing deliberate practice, experimental approaches to assessing pattern recognition processes, and a simulation model for examining trade-offs between knowledge and aging processes.
