The Handbook will be of interest to biologists involved in aging research, geriatricians, medical researchers, psychologists, sociologists, and practitioners dealing with an aging population. The Fourth Edition provides new insight into the aging of the nervous, neuroendocrine, cardiovascular, and immune systems; examines in more detail the molecular biology of aging; and features new chapters on menopause and neuropsychological assessment of cognitive abilities.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

David O. Staats
This is the fourth edition of a multiauthored book that reviews the current status of knowledge and research in the biology of aging. "The purpose is to access the contemporary research literature on the biology of aging. "The audience for this book is research personnel, graduate students, and healthcare professionals. "This compact elegant book features excellent illustrations, tables, diagrams, and listings. It features an author index as well as a subject index. "The fourth edition of this handbook, long a leading work in the field, continues to set a standard of excellence and usefulness. The recent explosion of knowledge about gene expression and molecular biology is concisely and brilliantly summarized in this new edition. The conceptualization, for example, of which animal models are the most useful to study aging, is breathtaking. Every biomedical library needs a copy of this book.
Booknews
A new edition of a handbook that gives an overview of critical areas of biomedical research on aging, detailing experiments with animals and findings in genetic analyses, molecular and cellular biology, neurobiology, physiology, endocrinology, and nutrition. The 40 contributors synthesize their work at some of the leading US research facilities, describing experiments such as the genetics of aging in Drosophila and the mechanisms of altered gene expression. The final essays display more familiar topics in gerontology, discussing exercise physiology, immune response, nutrition, skeletal integrity, and menopause (a new addition to this volume).
