    Abstract : Background and Objectives: With an ageing population, the number of older persons with substance use problems, particularly problematic alcohol use, is increasing. Despite grow­ing recognition of the negative consequences of problematic alcohol use on older persons, there is a dearth of knowledge about the alcohol use profiles and the dimensionality of alcohol problems in older people.

    Abstract : Amidst the realities of workforce aging and policies to prolong the working life across Europe, policymakers and researchers have emphasized the employer’s role in providing suitable working conditions for older workers under the human resource term “age management.” Although the definition of age management refers to all age groups, previous research has primarily used the concept in the context of older workers’ employment participation.

  3. 3. Do psychosocial working conditions contribute to healthy and active aging? studies of mortality, late-life health, and leisure

  4. 4. Damage Segregation and Cellular Rejuvenation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Sandra Malmgren Hill; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Aging; protein damage; quality control; metacaspase; aggregates; segregation; vacuole;

    Abstract : The process of aging is defined as a time-dependent decline in cellular functionality, and aging is thought to have evolved as organisms were optimized for reproduction, at the cost of an imperfect repair and maintenance system. As a consequence, different kinds of dysfunctional components and damage accumulate over time. READ MORE

  5. 5. Growing old and still practising competitive sports : An exploration of acting-space and sense-making processes among old women and men

It puts emphasis on the sociological point of intersection of three different research fields; sports science, critical gerontology and gender studies. READ MORE
