Aging is the accumulation of changes in an organism or object over time.

Aging in humans refers to a multidimensional process of physical, psychological, and social change. Some dimensions of aging grow and expand over time, while others decline. Reaction time, for example, may slow with age, while knowledge of world events and wisdom may expand. Research shows that even late in life potential exists for physical, mental, and social growth and development. Aging is an important part of all human societies reflecting the biological changes that occur, but also reflecting cultural and societal conventions.

Age is usually measured in full years - and months for young children. At present, the biological basis of aging is unknown. This book presents the latest research in this dynamic field.
