Habituation Theory and Environment-Aging Research: Ennui to Joie De Vivre?
Norris-Baker, Carolyn; Scheidt, Rick J.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v29 n4 p241-57 1989
Relates Kastenbaum's (1981) concept of habituation as model of human aging to two areas of environment-aging research: psychological control and environmental comprehension. Considers possible causal and mediating links between control and habituation and explores impact of habituation on environmental perception, cognition, and appraisal. Suggests personal and situational characteristics of older people likely to be at risk for habituated responses. (Author/NB)
