    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

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Sandra Torres; Mälardalens högskola.; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Sociology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Sociologi; Sociology; sociologi; 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;

    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.

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Kristin Nordin; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    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.

  4. 4. Peroxiredoxins in Redox Signaling and Aging

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Friederike Roger; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aging; Peroxiredoxin; Redox Signaling; Caloric restriction; light sensing;

    Sammanfattning : Peroxiredoxins have emerged as conserved modulators of the rate of aging in yeast and multicellular organisms and play a role in lifespan extension through the anti-aging intervention caloric restriction. Yet, it is not clear through what mechanism peroxiredoxins extend lifespan. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Odor identification in aging and dementia Influences of cognition and the ApoE gene

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Psykologi

    Författare :Jonas Olofsson; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Aging; olfaction; identification; dementia; Alzheimer; genetics; ApoE; population based; cognition; demographics; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Olfactory function is impaired in aging and dementia. The general aim of this thesis was to identify variables that predict olfactory function and dysfunction (assessed with an odor identification test) in middle-aged and elderly adults. LÄS MER
