Munn-Giddings, Carol; McVicar, Andy; Boyce, Melanie; O'Brien, Niamh – Educational Gerontology, 2016
This article adds to an ongoing conversation in gerontology about the importance of training and involving older people in research.

Nash, Paul; Stuart-Hamilton, Ian; Mayer, Peter – Educational Gerontology, 2014
Measures of attitudes to ageing typically examine only explicit attitudes, treating attitude holders as a homogeneous group with regards to education levels. Implicit attitudes (i.e., the immediate attitudinal response before conscious processes amend that attitude to an explicit attitude) have been less commonly examined. The current study…

Parry, Robert; Stuart-Hamilton, Ian – Educational Gerontology, 2010
Animism (erroneously believing inanimate objects are alive) is present in older adults (McDonald & Stuart-Hamilton, 2000). However, it is unclear if animism arises in later life or middle age. The current study tested 34 middle-aged adults (mean age 48 years) on Piaget's animism task and found a significant level of animism. Strength of…

Although there is a body of work on educational gerontology, there are few publications that specifically focus on training older people as coresearchers. This paper reports upon the training program undertaken as…
