Biology of Aging
The course will be organized utilizing a systems approach to presentations, class discussions, class readings, and on-line discussions. All in-class presentations will include preparatory readings, and students are expected to play active roles by asking questions and by participating in classroom discussions. This class is primarily focused on the Biology of Aging, but the student will be required to generally recognize and discuss the outcomes of these biological changes in terms of the effects on the individual, particularly in terms of physical function, but also in terms of psychosocial effects.
