About this Research Topic
This Research Topic therefore aims to provide insight into positive ageing from societal, behavioral, socio-cognitive, and emotional perspectives. This Topic and its associated research areas carry important implications for the field of public health, for policies, and for communities. We welcome articles written from different disciplinary perspectives that may have implications for a range of everyday independence activities. Issues of gender and socio-economic inequalities should also be a key area of focus for some of the submitted articles to this Topic. For example, what are the ways in which gender in older age modulates health, health behaviors, life chances, and inequalities? What are some advantages and disadvantages?
Specific sub-topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
• Lifespan impacts on applied aspects of cognition;
• Cognitive reserve;
• Cognitive frailty;
• Resilience, coping, and problem solving;
• Quality of life and need for (and/or use of) care and support in older age;
• Lifespan influences on later life well-being;
• Ageing and sociocultural variables,
• Influences of gender and inequalities on positive ageing;
• Socio-emotional cognition in older age.
The Topic Editors plan to provide a multidisciplinary synthesis of the accepted articles, drawing together the implications of the findings.
Keywords: ageing, life span, psychological development, psychosocial variables
