Abstract

The Handbook of the Psychology of Aging has become the definitive reference source for information on the psychology of adult development and aging. This new edition reviews recent developments in research on such topics as social and biological influences on behavior, cognitive functions in the aging individual, and motivational and personality changes with age. The Handbook features a strong emphasis on systematic explanation and covers important theoretical and methodological issues that form the basis for research on adult development and aging.
