About This Book

Handbook of the Biology of Aging, Third Edition presents the methodology for biological aging studies. This book discusses the three main sources of influence on aging, namely, the biological, the psychological, and the social.Organized into six parts encompassing 19 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the pathophysiology of the processes that lead to the array of age-dependent conditions. This text then examines the clinical studies on aging, with emphasis on study design, subject selection and characterization, and the clinical relevance of the aging changes studied. Other chapters consider various topics related to aging, including circadian rhythms, protein modifications with aging, special senses, and the adrenocortical axis. This book discusses as well the study of immune dysfunction in the aged organism. The final chapter deals with odor deficits as well as subtle taste changes associated with aging.This book is a valuable resource for scientists, gerontologists, graduate students, and professionals.
