Aging and Creativity examines the effects of aging on creative functioning, including age-related changes in cognition, personality, and motivation that affect performance or output. The book reviews and summarizes both lab-based and real-world-based studies. Changes in working memory, speed of processing, learning efficiency, and retrieval from long-term memory are all discussed as factors influencing creativity, as are health changes and changes in social roles with later age. The book concludes with practical implications of age effects on creativity for older people in work and everyday life. Explores cognition and creativity from early adulthood through old age Considers creativity and aging from an evidence-based perspective Includes biological, psychological, and social approaches to aging and creativity Covers age effects on perception, processing speed, working memory, and long-term memory Discusses effects of health and social role changes with age on creativity Examines links between productivity, motivation, and creativity over age

Creativity and Successful Aging Book Excerpt:

"Creative expression in later life can be linked directly to successful aging. Beginning with theoretical models of creativity and life-span development, the contributors examine the factors that influence creative exploration: environmental, social, gender, cognitive, and personality. New theories on creative productivity in late life are presented which suggest that the potential for creativity is present in many older adults." "Using longitudinal studies and qualitative interviews, the contributors look at the role creativity plays in the lives of elders, and the way that creativity aids in the adaptation to physical aspects of aging, problem-solving, and life reminiscing." "A variety of viewpoints are presented from the perspectives of cognitive aging researchers, creativity researchers, and experts in a variety of creative domains. This text is a useful addition to courses in hermeneutics and critical gerontology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

The Aging Consumer Book Excerpt:

The Aging Consumer: Perspectives from Psychology and Marketing, 2nd edition takes stock of what is known around age and consumer behavior, identifies gaps and open questions within the research, and outlines an agenda for future research. There has been little systematic research done with respect to the most basic questions related to age and consumer behavior, such as whether older adults versus young and middle-age adults respond to marketing activities including pricing, promotions, product design, and distribution. Written by experts, The Aging Consumer compiles research on a broad range of topics on consumer marketing, from an individual to a societal level of analysis. This second edition provides new versions of chapters contained in the 2010 volume that have been updated to reflect the latest psychological and marketing research and thinking. Included also are ten new chapters which cover exciting new ground, such as changes in metacognition in older adults, motivated cognition of the aging consumer, and a global perspective on aging and the economy across cultures. This updated volume is beneficial for researchers and practitioners in marketing, consumer behavior, and advertising. Additionally, The Aging Consumer, 2nd edition will appeal to professionals in other fields such as psychology, decision sciences, gerontology and gerontological social work, and those who are concerned with normal human aging and its implications for the everyday behavior of older individuals. It will also be of interest to those in fields concerned with the societal implications of an aging population, such as economics, policy, and law.

Brain Networks for Studying Healthy and Pathological Aging Mechanisms and Intervention Efficacy Book Excerpt:

Previous studies showed that both healthy and pathological aging are associated with changes in brain structure and function of the mature human brain. The most prominent anatomical alteration are changes in prefrontal cortex morphology, volume loss and reduced white-matter integrity and hippocampal atrophy. Cognitive decline affects mainly the performance of episodic memory, speed of sensory information processing, working memory, inhibitory function and long-term memory. It has been also proposed that due to the aforementioned changes the aging brain engages in compensatory brain mechanism such as a broader activation of cortical regions (mainly frontal) rather than specialized activation. Evidence suggests that similar changes occur with pathological aging but to a greater extent. In this case information flow is disrupted due to neurodegeneration, functional activation of posterior (occipito-temporal) regions is decreased and as a consequence the brain fails to process sensorial input in the ventral pathway and cognitive deficits appear. In the last years, functional alterations associated with aging have been studied using the mathematical notion of graph theory that offers an integrative approach since it examines different properties of the brain network: 1) Organization level 2) amount of local information processing, 3) information flow 4) cortical community structure and 5) identification of functional / anatomical hubs. So, graph theory offers an attractive way to model brain networks organization and to quantify their pathological deviations. Previous studies have already employed this mathematical notion and demonstrated that age-related neurodegeneration is often accompanied by loss of optimal network organization either due to diminished local information processing or due to progressive isolation of distant brain regions. They have also found that changes in network properties may be present even in the preclinical phase, which could be taken as a biological marker of disease.

Positive Ageing Book Excerpt:

This book presents a kaleidoscopic view of the positive layers of ageing as well as key interventions that can help generate and maintain positivity and well-being among the elderly. It explores the connections of ageing with spirituality, nature and existentialism, and leisure to encourage creativity, individuation, happiness and emotional detachment. It further examines various interventions such as end-of-life care, mindfulness and yoga, retrospection and life-review, etc. which may improve the overall quality of life by promoting the health of the elderly. The book focuses on authentic ageing, transpersonal gerontology, the concept of elder child, geriatric interventions, and caregiving, and suggests practical improvements in health and facilities for the elderly. It also covers aspects of the inner life of the prolonged ailing or dying person from a mental health perspective and emphasizes on the value of positive ageing. A guide to applied geriatrics and geriatric psychology, with its simple style and clear methods in end-to-end praxis, the book shows how mental well-being can be fostered in the elderly to help them find meaning and purpose in old age. This book will interest students, teachers and researchers of psychology, positive psychology, geropsychology and gerontological studies, sociology and social work, public health, medical education and geriatric nursing. It will also be useful to practitioners including psychologists, counsellors, gerontologists, mental health professionals and NGOs working with the elderly, and the interested reader.
