    Sammanfattning : 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.

  2. 2. Inner strength among the oldest old : a good aging

    Författare :Björn Nygren; Berit Lundman; Astrid Norberg; Ingegerd Fagerberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; aged; aging; development; health; inner strength; oldest old; resilience; Nursing; Omvårdnad;

    Sammanfattning : The overall purpose of this thesis is to describe, explore and illuminate inner strength among the oldest old. The thesis has a salutogenic perspective where strengths and health are in the foreground instead of weakness and ill health. The thesis is part of The Umeå 85+ study and comprises four studies with both quantitative and qualitative data. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Understanding "successful aging" : Cultural and migratory perspectives

    Författare :Sandra Torres; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Sociology; sociology. social gerontology; successful aging; value orientations; culture; cross-cultural gerontology; ethnogerontology; migration; Iranian immigrants; culturally-appropriate care; gerontological theory; vignettes; gerontological methods; Sociologi; Sociology; Sociologi; Sociology; sociologi;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation aims to contribute to the rectification of the atheoretization that characterizes the study of aging and diversity through the formulation and preliminary empirical testing of a culturally-relevant theoretical framework for the study of successful aging. Inspired by the Kluckhohnian approach to the study of cultural variation, the framework hereby proposed posits that there is congruence between the understandings of successful aging that people uphold and the value orientations that they prefer in regards to four topics: man-nature, time, activity and relational.

  4. 4. Aging Along the Hippocampal Axis : Structure, Function and Whole-brain Connections in Association with Memory

    Författare :Kristin Nordin; Hedvig Söderlund; Agneta Herlitz; Jessica Damoiseaux; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; hippocampus; aging; longitudinal-axis; episodic memory; spatial memory; connectivity; fMRI; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Hippocampus-dependent functions display marked reductions in older age, an observation that has led to the extensive study of age effects on hippocampal properties. Even though research indicates that the hippocampus is structurally and functionally heterogeneous along its longitudinal axis, its anterior and posterior regions differentially supporting episodic and spatial memory representations, few studies explicitly consider age effects in relation to axis.

  5. 5. On Aging, Behavior and the Role of PA28αβ in Protein Homeostasis

    Författare :Julia Adelöf; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aggregation prevention; Aging; Animal ethics; Cataract; Exploratory behavior; F2 hybrid mice; Healthy aging; Learning and memory; PA28αβ; Proteasome capacity; Sex comparisons; Water-based behavioral tests;

    Sammanfattning : As life expectancy increases, understanding challenges related to the processes of aging are more relevant than ever. Common age-related diseases progress as consequences of accumulative protein damage and protein aggregates. LÄS MER
