Firstly, with regards to thinking about what inequalities operate in later life there has been an excessive preoccupation with economic resources.

    This text provides comprehensive coverage of biological aspects of human ageing at a level accessible to students with little or no science background. It is aimed at students pursuing a career working with, or for, the elderly. Each system is covered in its own chapter. Individual chapters present the structure and function of each body system, followed by natural age changes, and conclude 5/5(1). The Handbook of Cognitive Aging: Interdisciplinary Perspectives clarifies the differences in patterns and processes of cognitive aging. Along with a comprehensive review of current research, editors Scott M. Hofer and Duane F. Alwin provide a solid foundation for building a multidisciplinary agenda that will stimulate further rigorous research into these complex factors.
