Overview

The Fourth Edition of the Handbook of the Biology of Aging continues the tradition of providing a comprehensive overview of some of the most important topics in biomedical gerontology. It updates issues examined in previous editions and covers new advances in geriatric medicine and the neurobiology of aging. 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.
