Downloaded By: [Wayne State University] At: 19:19 28 February 2008 The multidisciplinary process of the study of aging is strongly reflected in this volume. In Section I, which underscores conceptual and technical issues of aging, the first chapter discusses aging theory from the perspective of investigators in the field of engineering. Successive chapters in this section critically evaluate the association between aging and age-associated disease, the complexity and impact of dietary restriction and the theory of hormesis, as well as stem cell aging theories and the mitochondrial theory of aging. Another chapter focuses on the critical function of p53, a stress response protein that is also a proven contributor to longevity. The duration of human aging makes it difficult to study it in vivo. Scientists therefore use different model systems in order to gain greater understanding about human physiological processes. In Chapter 7, scientific discourse on the complex genetic architecture of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster , and longevity is discussed with implications for how many loci affect variation in the human life span.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
