Updates in Progress
I am performing literature searches on specific topics for information published after 2000. As I complete each literature search, I will write an update section on that topic and place it within this web site. I will provide links to each update at appropriate places within chapter notes, in the main index page and in the site map. Where possible, I will provide links to key on-line articles upon which the updates are based and that may contribute additional relevant details. Each update will also include a complete bibliography. In keeping with the theme of Human Aging: Biological Perspectives, I will emphasize human aging and topics closely related to human aging. These updates will keep you and your students current while still using the present edition. Return to Main Index Return to Site Map
I will be working on topics such as the following.
· Methods and theories about slowing, stopping or reversing general normal aging processes (i.e., anti-aging)
· Methods and theories about slowing, stopping or reversing normal aging in specific body structures and functions
· Mechanisms underlying common age-related diseases
· Methods for slowing, stopping or reversing common age-related diseases
· Changes in information now within the book
· New theories on aging
· Advances in knowledge about human aging not presently addressed within the book
· New research areas not presently addressed within the book
Please send suggestions for other topics for updates.
