Human Development and Aging – Weekly Notes (1)  Chapter One – Studying adult development and aging: - Gerontology - Ageism - Life span perspective: Four key features o Multi-directionality  Growth and decline are the only things they think. Example: reading is equivalent to more mind, but lack of physical activity. o Plasticity  Our capacity isn’t predetermined o Historical Content:  Time period we grew up. Example: 9/11, 1 black president, legalization of gay marriage. o Multiple Causation  Bio-Psychosocial Framework: - Life cycle forces  Biological  Psychological  Socio-cultural  Cohort - Group of people born at the same time. Example: baby boomers.  Normative age graded influences: - We all experience this. Example: puberty, potty training.  Normative History Graded influences: - In our time period that shaped us and our growth.  Non-Normative influences: - Doesn’t happen to all of us.  The meaning of age: - Primary aging: right on time; healthy. - Secondary aging: affected by life choices and some environmental things you cannot control. - Tertiary aging: is the loss of functions before you pass away. - Chronological age: how old you are when you pass. - Perceived age, biological age (functioning of organs), psychological age (self-esteem, emotionally/cognitively, how we function) - Socio-Cultural age: some cultures think that development/age should be a different past. It differs.  Core issues in developmental controversies: - Nature vs. Nurture - Stability vs. Change – do we change with age, or do we stay stable? - Continuity vs. Discontinuity - Universal vs. Context Specific  WATCHED A VIDEO IN CLASS OVER BRAIN DEVELOPMENT; NOTES WILL BE POSTED THIS THURSDAY.
