Research with laboratory rats and humans demonstrating that the usual age-related deficits in spatial working memory can be attenuated or eliminated by prior training earlier in adult life is reviewed and possible mechanisms for this phenomenon are considered. A new technique for measuring remote memory for spatial information in humans is described and preliminary results with demented patients are discussed.
