Intellectual Functioning in Adults. Psychological and Biological Influences.
Jarvik, Lissy F., Ed.; And Others
The contributions to this volume were drawn from selected symposia of the Division on Adult Development and Aging at the 76th and 78th annual meetings of the American Psychological Association. The four parts of the book are as follows: Part I. Individual Changes in Adult Intelligence: Longitudinal Approaches; Part II. Somatic Components of Psychological Changes in Adults; Part III. Potential Contribution of Life History Approaches; and Part IV. Summary. The first Part concentrates on longitudinal research in the field of aging. In the second Part, some of the somatic correlates of psychological change are examined, and data resulting from two longitudinal studies are included. Part III represents a recognition of the yet untapped contribution of lifetime experiential variables to the physical and mental changes accompanying the aging process; and various modes of dealing with the problems of construction of a cogent life history interview are explored. Twelve authors are represented in this book. An extensive list of references is provided, and a subject index concludes the book. (Author/DB)
