Successful Aging

Description

A large body of evidence suggests that there is substantial heterogeneity in patterns of aging. That is, while many older people continue to show expected patterns of decline in health and functional ability, others appear more resilient to various environmental perturbations. This physiological resiliency is more than likely a necessary factor in delaying (compressing) the onset of chronic disease, functional limitations, and disability closer to the end of the natural life span.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the etiology and determinants of resiliency, successful aging, and healthy longevity. We are particularly interested in articles describing novel interventions for preserving function and mobility in adults ≽85 years. Findings from observational and experimental studies are welcome, as are those from studies performed at the cellular, applied, community, and population levels. Potential topic areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Physical function and mobility
  • Metabolism
  • Musculoskeletal function
  • Cardiovascular function
  • Cognitive/neurosensory function
  • Psychosocial health
