Aging Health

“Recent years have seen an abrupt decline in birth rates in the Western World against a setting of life-extending advances in healthcare. However, declining physiological, sensory and cognitive skills among the elderly represent a huge medical burden, and elderly adults are also at greater risk from chronic illnesses, disabilities and susceptibility to disease. The significant demographic changes underway therefore present major challenges for the clinical community, healthcare systems, governmental bodies and the pharmaceutical industry.

As the mechanisms underlying disease and disability in the elderly become better understood, there is an increasing requirement for a centralized forum for commentary and analysis of the rapidly expanding wealth of information in this field. Aging Health (ISSN 1745-509X) focuses on the most important advances and highlights their relevance in the clinical setting. “

“The journal has been designed to deliver essential concise information in an easily assimilable format – vital for the increasingly time-constrained professional. The audience for Aging Health consists of clinicians, research scientists, decision-makers and a range of professionals in the healthcare community.”



Aging, Neuropsychology, and Cognition

“The purposes of Aging, Neuropsychology, and Cognition are to (a) publish research on both the normal and dysfunctional aspects of cognitive development in adulthood and aging, and (b) promote the integration of theories, methods, and research findings between the fields of cognitive gerontology and neuropsychology.

The primary emphasis of the journal is to publish original empirical research. Occasionally, theoretical or methodological papers, critical reviews of a content area, or theoretically relevant case studies will also be published. Emphases of interest include information processing mechanisms, intellectual abilities, the impact of injury or disease on performance, cognitive training, cognitive and pharmacological approaches to treatment and rehabilitation, metacognition, and the social and personal aspects of cognitive functioning. “

“Articles on both normal and dysfunctional development that are relevant to the interface between cognitive gerontology and neuropsychology are particularly welcome. Multiple approaches to issues of aging and cognition (e.g., basic, applied, clinical), and multiple methodologies (e.g., cross-sectional, longitudinal, experimental, multivariate correlation) are appropriate.”

Journal of Cachexia, Sarcopenia and Muscle

“The Journal of Cachexia, Sarcopenia and Muscle is a peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to publishing materials that are related to cachexia and sarcopenia, as well as to body composition and its physiological and pathophysiological changes during the lifespan and in response to different illnesses from all fields of the life sciences.

The term cachexia describes involuntary weight loss that is observed in the course of many chronic diseases, and is one of the most debilitating and life-threatening aspects of various illnesses at advanced stages. Cachexia, wasting syndromes and sarcopenia are becoming a concerning challenge for an increasing number of patients, their relatives and the medical teams caring for them.”

“The Journal of Cachexia, Sarcopenia and Muscle aims to offer a reliable resource to all professionals who are interested in related research or who are involved in the clinical care of affected patients, for example those suffering from AIDS, cancer, chronic heart failure, chronic lung disease, liver cirrhosis, chronic kidney failure, rheumatoid arthritis, or sepsis.

Alterations in body composition, particularly those affecting skeletal muscle, are key elements in the ageing process and in the pathophysiology of several chronic illnesses. Sarcopenia, i.e. loss of functional muscle mass without weight loss, is part of the ageing process and may play a role in reduced physical performance, falls, and disability. Studies on the functional importance of fat tissue and mechanisms leading to lipolysis are equally of interest as are studies on mechanisms of muscle wasting…. “

“The Gerontologist, published since 1961, is a bimonthly journal (first issue in February) of The Gerontological Society of America that provides a multidisciplinary perspective on human aging through the publication of research and analysis in gerontology, including social policy, program development, and service delivery. It reflects and informs the broad community of disciplines and professions involved in understanding the aging process and providing service to older people.

Articles, including those in applied research, should report concepts and research findings, with implications for policy or practice. Contributions from social and psychological sciences, biomedical and health sciences, political science and public policy, economics, education, law, and the humanities are welcome. Brief descriptions of innovative practices and programs are appropriate in the Practice Concepts section.”



The International Journal of Aging and Human Development

“Under what conditions does “development” end? Under what conditions does “aging” begin? Can these conditions themselves be modified by intervention at the psychological, social, or biological levels? To what extent are patterns of development and aging attributable to biological factors? To psychological factors? How can the social and behavioral sciences contribute to the actualization of human potential throughout the entire life span? What are the implications of gerontological research for our understanding of the total development of human organism?

These are some of the broad questions with which the International Journal of Aging and Human Development is concerned. Emphasis is upon psychological and social studies of aging and the aged. However, the Journal also publishes research that introduces observations from other fields that illuminate the “human” side of gerontology, or utilizes gerontological observations to illuminate in other fields.”



The Journal of Frailty & Aging

“The Journal of Frailty & Aging is a peer-reviewed international journal aimed at presenting articles that are related to research in the area of aging and age-related (sub)clinical conditions. In particular, the journal publisheshigh-quality papers describing and discussing social, biological, and clinical features underlying the onset and development of frailty in older persons.

The Journal of Frailty & Aging is composed by five different sections :

Biology of frailty and aging
In this section, the journal presents reports from preclinical studies and experiences focused at identifying, describing, and understanding the subclinical pathophysiological
mechanisms at the basis of frailty and aging.

Physical frailty and age-related body composition modifications
Studies exploring the physical and functional components of frailty are contained in this section. Moreover, since body composition plays a major role in determining physical frailty and, at the same time, represents the most evident feature of the aging process, special attention is given to studies focused on sarcopenia and obesity at older age.

• Neurosciences of frailty and aging

The section presents results from studies exploring the cognitive and neurological aspects of frailty and age-related conditions. In particular, papers on neurodegenerative conditions of advanced age are welcomed.

Frailty and aging in clinical practice and public health
This journal’s section is devoted at presenting studies on clinical issues of frailty and age-related conditions. This multidisciplinary section particularly welcomes reports from clinicians coming from different backgrounds and specialties dealing with the heterogeneous clinical manifestations of advanced age. Moreover, this part of the journal also contains reports on frailty- and age-related social and public health issues.

Clinical trials and therapeutics
This final section contains all the manuscripts presenting data on (pharmacological and non-pharmacological) interventions aimed at preventing, delaying, or treating frailty and age-related conditions.”



The journal of nutrition, health & aging

“There is increasing scientific and clinical interest in the interactions of nutrition and health as part of the aging process. This interest is due to the important role that nutrition plays throughout the life span. This role affects the growth and development of the body during childhood, affects the risk of acute and chronic diseases, the maintenance of physiological processes and the biological process of aging.

A major aim of “The Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging” is to contribute to the improvement of knowledge regarding the relationships between nutrition and the aging process from birth to old age. “

Folheando as revistas enquanto se toma um cafezinho

Janeiro é período de férias, lazer, entretenimento. Mas às vezes este precioso tempo de ócio, pode induzir ao “ócio criativo”, como diria Domenico de Masi, em que os momentos de contemplação despreocupada da vida permitem o surgimento de novos insights.

Dessa forma, sem a pretensão de fazer reflexões mais densas, bisbilhotamos preguiçosamente algumas revistas e apresentamos um “flash” do que está sendo publicado por aí.

Temas de hoje:

- Envelhecimento em pessoas com deficiência mental;

- Significado simbólico do lar para o idoso;

- Treinamento com exercícios excêntricos;

- Conceitos sobre emoções e curso de vida;

Obs: ao sair da página, desligue a cafeteira e passe o seu protetor solar!

O envelhecimento de pessoas com deficiência mental e os desafios para famílias e instituições socioeducativas: um estudo exploratório descritivo.

Maria de Lourdes Perioto Guhur, Jean Vincent Marie Guhur.


“...parece existir uma tendência em se considerar que mulheres com deficiência mental iniciam o processo de envelhecimento muito próximo dos 35/40 anos e os homens, em torno dos 45/50 anos. Em ambos os casos, àquelas transformações e perdas consideradas habituais no envelhecimento de pessoas com desenvolvimento normal seriam acrescidas, precocemente, as derivadas de fatores que se associam às deficiências. Em se tratando, por exemplo, de mulheres com essa condição de desenvolvimento, outras variáveis teriam seus efeitos intensificados, como a obesidade em portadoras de trissomia, a desmineralização provocada pela menopausa e, em consequência, a osteoporose e os problemas coronários....”

“... o deficit é visto como incidindo sobre a apreensão do sentido das experiências cotidianas em um mundo contraditório e pleno de alternativas, propício, portanto, às crises e exigente quanto à necessidade de bem assimilar as frustrações e bem desenvolver formas elaboradas de adaptação e de organização pessoal. Nessa perspectiva, os deficit de natureza funcional e as disfunções e/ou a carência de estratégias e recursos cognitivos são comumente distinguidos como moduladores de um modo especial de desenvolvimento e constituição da personalidade, como também responsabilizados pela maioria dos limites ou dificuldades que reverberam no âmbito dos relacionamentos afetivos, em especial nas formas de exteriorização das emoções como parte das condutas afetivas....”

Restoring and Sustaining Home: The Impact of Home Modifications on the Meaning of Home for Older People

Bronwyn TannerCheryl Tilse, Desleigh de Jonge.


“… The importance of a supportive home environment to successful aging has been well-established in the literature, with home modifications increasingly acknowledged as ways of removing barriers to function and increasing independence for older people. Home modification literature and practice primarily focus on the home environment as a physical space in which to perform tasks and on the impact of modification on competencies and function. Home, however, is much more than a physical environment.

Within a transactive framework, people and places are seen as engaged in a dynamic, reciprocal relationship through which home becomes a place of significant personal meaning.

Through a qualitative framework, this study examines the experience of older people living in the community who are recipients of a home modification service. It explores the impact modifying the physical environment has on their experience of home as a place of meaning and provides insight into how home modifications can strengthen the home as a place of personal and social meaning  as well as improve safety and comfort for the older person at home….”

Aging, Functional Capacity and Eccentric Exercise Training

Mandy L. Gault and Mark E.T. Willems

United Kingdom

“… Aging is a multi-factorial process that ultimately induces a decline in our physiological functioning, causing a decreased health-span, quality of life and independence for older adults. Exercise participation is seen as a way to reduce the impact of aging through maintenance of physiological parameters.

Eccentric exercise is a model that can be employed with older adults, due to the muscle’s ability to combine high muscle force production with a low energy cost. There may however be a risk of muscle damage before the muscle is able to adapt. The first part of this review describes the process of aging and how it reduces aerobic capacity, muscle strength and therefore functional mobility. The second part highlights eccentric exercise and the associated muscle damage, in addition to the repeated bout effect. The final section reviews eccentric exercise interventions that have been completed by older adults with a focus on the changes in functional mobility. In conclusion, eccentric endurance exercise is a potential training modality that can be applied to older adults for improving muscle strength, aerobic capacity and functional ability.

However, further research is needed to assess the effects on aerobic capacity and the ideal prescription for eccentric endurance exercise....”

Las emociones en el curso de la vida. Un marco conceptual


Ricardo Iacub


“... El estudio de las emociones ha generado a lo largo de la historia diversos modos de  comprensión y acercamiento. Por esta razón han surgido desde la filosofía, la biología y la  psicología distintos autores que han dejado marcas en su comprensión, así como modelos  para conceptualizar y construir este concepto. Por ello revisaremos algunas líneas teóricas desde donde se abordaron las emociones...”.

“... Existe una larga polémica acerca de las continuidades y discontinuidades entre la  emoción y la cognición, así como de la primacía de una sobre la otra. Esto ha generado  teorías que las diferencian como sistemas separados, y otras que encuentran interrelaciones y procesos bidireccionales....”

“... Uno de los objetivos centrales de esta investigación fue indagar los cambios que se producen a lo largo de la vida. Por ello, resultan fundamentales los estudios que indagaron particularmente dichas transformaciones....”

“... Los estudios recientes marcan que la complejidad emocional aumenta con la edad y las emociones se entremezclan, volviéndose más complejas...”
