Such factors serve in a way which modulated performance and are therefore susceptible to improvement, as well as decline. Examples of these cognitive functions are things like memory, attention, and reasoning.

You might have easily guessed this one, but your cognitive performance relies on the difficulty of the task. Does the task include problem-solving for example? That will make the task more difficult.
The brain is a muscle that must be exercised and used in order to achieve its maximum level of performance capability. Therefore, a brain that has neglectfully been deprived of practice will under-perform in many scenarios
When it becomes necessary for an individual to divide their cognition between tasks (for example, memory and attention) it becomes more difficult for them to focus on the main task at hand and such a divide ultimately can decrease performance capability
