Semantic cognition is an important part of language systems, and thus the exploration of its development mechanism and the underlying neural mechanism is of great significance to reveal the development and cognitive mechanism of human languages. This paper focuses on the acquisition, development and aging of semantic cognition, and further explores the mechanism of aging in semantic cognition and related neural mechanism based on systematic elaboration of lexica-semantic acquisition and the development of semantic cognitive ability and strategy. Finally, discussions were made on the differences between children and adults in semantic cognition, syntactic and semantic cognitive aging, and the influencing factors of aging.

Key words: semantic processing, semantic acquisition and development, aging in semantic cognition, neural mechanism
