This is a commentary on Campbell and Schacter (2016), "Ageing and the resting state: Is cognition obsolete?" (Journal Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, Advance online publication. http://doi.org/10.1080/23273798.2016.1227858). Campbell and Schacter argue that resting state data have a limited ability to contribute to the study of neurocognitive ageing and that the field should focus more on results from carefully controlled experimental designs. In this commentary, we argue for a different perspective on future research directions in neurocognitive ageing. Specifically for the need to use a more integrative approach; combining rest and task data as well as information from different modalities to obtain a better understanding of the neural mechanisms that underlie healthy cognitive ageing. Potential benefits of this integrative approach are illustrated with a number of examples. In addition, we discuss some of the advantages of using resting state data as part of this integrative approach.
