In this talk I will discuss how healthy ageing affects the production and comprehension of language, as well as the underlying brain mechanisms. I will zoom in on individual differences among healthy older adults, what may explain these, and how we could interpret these in the light of cognitive ageing theories. This will lead us to findings on lifestyle factors (e.g. regular physical exercise) and how these factors can contribute to maintaining brain function and language in older age.
