Encyclopedia of Biomedical Gerontology presents a wide range of topics, ranging from what happens in the body during aging, the reasons and mechanisms relating to those age-related changes, and their clinical, psychological and social modulators and determinants. The book covers the biological and medical aspects of gerontology within the general framework of the biological basis of assessing age, biological mechanisms of aging, age-related changes in biological systems, human age-related diseases, the biomedical practicality and impracticality of interventions, and finally, the ethics of intervention.
- Provides a ‘one-stop’ resource to information written by world-leading scholars in the field of biomedical gerontology
- Fills a critical gap of information in a field that has seen significant progress in the last 10 years
Students, researchers, academics, industrialists and healthcare personnel in the field of ageing and geriatrics who need specific information on topics outside their immediate area of expertise
