Abstract

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book reviews molecular and cellular aspects of aging in the context of the evolution of aging. It provides humanistic perspectives on aging giving examples of late-life creativity, artistic portrayals of aging and the aging mind, and therapeutic applications of the arts for older persons. The book also reviews essential principles, practice and approaches to assessing older persons with mental, behavioral and mobility changes. It examines the role and practice of neuropsychological assessment for older persons. The book reviews current experimental and clinical applications of electroencephalography (EEG) for the assessment of age-related cognitive impairment. It discusses on two quintessential human abilities that change over the course of lives: memory and language. The book explores the significance of the continual growth of the "55-plus" workforce and the impact of gender in employment, particularly for older workers.
