Description

This new section of the Handbook presents 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. It also provides comprehensive information for gerontologists on the physiological characteristics of aging in mammals, particularly humans. For physiologists, geriatricians and gerontologists, this will be an invaluable source of information. Biologists who plan to initiate aging studies should find it indispensable for avoiding pitfalls unique to gerontological research.show more

Review quote

"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 "Is far more than an encyclopedia of senescence in traditionally defined physiological systems.
