            • Lifespan and Sexual Maturity Depends on Your Brain More than Your Body

              https://neurosciencenews.com/lifespa...y-brain-10124/

              “The cortex is the part of your brain that is capable of making our behavior complex and flexible, yes, but that extends well beyond cognition and doing mental math and logic reasoning,” said Herculano-Houzel. “The cerebral cortex also gives your body adaptability, as it adjusts and learns how to react to stresses and predict them. That includes keeping your physiological functions running smoothly and making sure your heart rate, your respiratory rate, and your metabolism are on track with what you’re doing, with how you feel, and with what you expect to happen next. And that, apparently, is a key factor that impacts longevity,” she adds.

              • We all want 'healthy aging,' but what is it, really? New report looks for answers

                https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1101133751.htm

                "Geriatrics is a collaborative profession built by clinicians, educators, health system experts, older adults, and caregivers," Dr. Friedman said. "We understand complexity. We are experts in culturally competent, person-centered care. We are skilled in assessing preferences and values, and translating them into prevention, intervention, and advance care planning. Regardless of how society chooses to define 'healthy aging,' these are the practices that make it something we can see -- and ideally experience, especially through geriatrics-led insights."
                My early exposure to working in geriatric mdts (in the 1970s) has informed every area of my practice.

                  • Does having muscle weakness and obesity lead to falls for older women?

                    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1105122506.htm

                    Currently, 5 percent to 13 percent of adults older than 60 have sarcopenia. Those rates may be as high as 50 percent in people 80-years-old and older.

                    • Back pain shows significant association with mortality among older women

                      https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1106111619.htm



                      After taking baseline measurements of back pain, researchers followed up with participants two years later and measured back pain again. In year four, participants were asked about and observed doing common activities of daily living. The study found that disability following the measurements of back pain explained much of the association with mortality.

                      Specifically, difficulty performing one or more basic daily activities, like walking short distances or meal preparation, explained nearly half (47 percent) of the effect of frequent persistent back pain on mortality. Slow performance on more objective measures, like observed walking speed or repetitive standing up from a chair, each explained about a fourth of this association (27 percent and 24 percent, respectively). Of 8,321 women in the study, 56 percent died over a median follow up of 14.1 years. A higher proportion of women with frequent persistent back pain died (65.8 percent) than those with no back pain (53.5 percent).

                      While the study's findings are consistent with prior studies that found older women with daily or disabling back pain had elevated mortality risk, why this association occurs remains unclear.

                      "Back pain may directly impair daily activities, but older adults could inappropriately avoid them due to fear of re-injury or worsening of symptoms. Being unable to perform, or avoiding, daily activities could lead to weight gain, development or progression of other chronic health conditions, and ultimately earlier death," said Roseen.

                      These results lay the foundation for future studies to assess the long-term impact of back pain treatments and self-care strategies. Clinicians should assess physical function in older adults with back pain and recommend guideline-based management, which encourages use of less invasive treatments.

                      • Age-related changes in trunk muscle activity and spinal and lower limb kinematics during gait

                        https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0206514

                        Walking is a fundamental human ability essential for social participation that is widely promoted as being beneficial to health in both young and older adults. Walking is often trained in rehabilitation, including for the management of spine-related conditions. Yet, surprisingly little evidence supports walking or gait-based activities as interventions specifically directed at the spine. Further, little is known regarding the activation of spinal muscles during walking, particularly for the deep-lying muscle fibres. Momentum is mounting toward research of spinal muscles in understanding spinal degeneration, pain, function, and recovery. However, age is a strong confounder [14] that confuses the clinical significance of muscle parameters [57]. As far as we are aware, no study has directly examined the influence of age on activity of the muscles of the lumbar spine, or trunk kinematics during walking.

                        Change to gait patterns and muscle activity occur with ageing [8, 9]. Older adults walk more slowly [811], have wider and shorter stance [1014] and swing phases [14], and exhibit reduced range of motion of the lower limb [15, 16] than younger adults [17]. However, these findings are informed by gait kinematic studies.[810, 1219] or studies examining young adults.[10, 2026]. One study reported an incremental reduction in co-activation of the trunk muscles with age, and increased coactivation with gait speed [10]. However, they did not detail age-related differences according to individual muscles or relating to gait kinematics.
                        It is also worth looking at stair climbing for assessment and rehab.

                          “Our study identifies a specific microbiota member and its metabolite that can influence aging in the host organism,” says Igor Iatsenko. “There are definitely many more examples like this, and a better understanding of host-microbiota metabolic interactions during aging is needed in order to develop strategies against age-associated pathologies.”
