Overview


The aims of this new section of the Handbook of Physiology are two. One is to present a source of basic knowledge about aging including research approaches for use by physiologists as well as other biologists not directly involved in aging research. The other is to provide comprehensive information for gerontologists on the physiological characteristics of aging in mammals, particularly humans. The principles of biological gerontology are presented in Part I, which includes discussions of approaches to the measurement of the rate of aging of populations, the difficulty of assessing aging of the individual, theoretical concepts regarding the nature of aging, and conceptual issues concerning the relationship between aging and disease. Methodological issues unique to aging research are presented in Part II. The focus is on study design and analysis and on cell culture models, animal models and human subject use. Part III provides a detailed description of the cellular and noncellular aspects of aging. This part also discusses the metabolic characteristics of aging. In Part IV, twelve chapters provide comprehensive coverage of the influence of age on the physiology of the nervous systems and the organism. Interventions of aging processes, proposed and established, are the subject of Part V.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: S. Kaleen Quadri, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This new book on the biology of aging contains contributions by researchers from U.S. medical schools and gerontology research centers.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a broad overview of the current state of knowledge on several aspects of aging in mammals. with emphasis on human aging. It covers such topics as aging of the organ systems and metabolic and molecular aspects of aging. It also includes discussions of the theories of aging, selection of human subjects, and the use of cell cultures and animal models for aging studies.
Audience: Although targeted for researchers in biology of aging, the book will also be useful to geriatricians. For the most part, the authors of various chapters in the book are established investigators in their respective areas.
Features: The book includes charts, tables, graphs and a reasonably long list of references at the end of each chapter.
Assessment: The book brings together information on a variety of topics in the field of gerontology. It is a useful book for beginning researchers as well as for established researchers who need quick access to information on an aspect of aging which is not their specialty. The book can also serve as a source of initial reference for geriatricians.
From the Publisher

"Is far more than an encyclopedia of senescence in traditionally defined physiological systems. It is also a comprehensive manual for the critical design and evaluation of research in a discipline with unique and often subtle pitfalls....Because of the high quality of the articles, and the juxtaposition of nontraditional with traditional topics. new researchers, students and educators should find this book excellent both as an introduction to the current state of knowledge in the field as a guide for the evaluation of current theory and new research."Experimental Gerontology

"The book brings together information on a variety of topics in the field of gerontology. It is a useful book for beginning researchers who need quick access to information on an aspect of aging which is not their specialty."--S.Kaleen Quadri, M.D., University of Kansas Medical Center

"A useful reference volume that presents much...of the key knowledge in the physiology of aging."--The Physiologist
