Lifespan development and the brain : the perspective of biocultural co-constructivism by Paul B Baltes( )

25 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on the developmental analysis of brain-culture-environment dynamics and argues that this dynamic is interactive and reciprocal; brain and culture co-determine each other. As a whole, this book refutes any unidirectional conception of the brain-culture dynamic, as each is influenced by and modifies the other. To capture the ubiquitous reach and significance of the mutually dependent and co-productive brain-culture system, the metaphor of biocultural co-constructivism is invoked. Distinguished researchers from cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and developmental psychology review the evidence in their respective fields. A special focus of the book is its coverage of the entire human lifespan."--Jacket

The Berlin aging study : aging from 70 to 100 by Paul B Baltes( Book )

33 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present and future of our society are shaped by an ever-increasing proportion of old and very old people. The Berlin Aging Study is one of the largest interdisciplinary efforts to explore old age and aging. Unique aspects of the Berlin Aging Study are the spectrum of scientific disciplines involved, the range of discipline-specific and interdisciplinary research topics, the focus on very old age (70 to over 100 years), and the empirical reference to a representative heterogenous urban population."--Jacket
Aging successfully : the psychological aspects of growing old by Paul B Baltes( Visual )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developmental psychologists Paul and Margret Baltes proposed a model of adaptive competence for the entire life span, but the emphasis here is on old age. In this program, the Baltes illustrate their SOC (selection, optimization, and compensation) model with engaging vignettes of senior citizens leading fulfilling lives, including writers Betty Friedan and Joan Erikson and dancer Bud Mercer. Segments of the cognitive tests used in assessing the mental abilities of older people are shown as the Baltes discuss personality components that generally lead to positive aging experiences
Longitudinal research in the study of behavior and development by John R Nesselroade( Book )

13 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interactive minds : life-span perspectives on the social foundation of cognition( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Various theoretical models in psychology and the social sciences have emphasized the social foundation of the mind and the role that social interactions play in cognitive functioning and its development. In this volume the metaphor used to capture this is interactive minds - a term chosen because it emphasizes social transaction and communication between minds without implying particular mechanisms or outcomes. For instance, we include in our conceptualization of interactive minds both internal and external forms of interaction with others. In addition, we emphasize that not all products of interacting minds are positive
Life-span developmental psychology : introduction to research methods by Paul B Baltes( Book )

What are the changes we see over the life-span? How can we explain them? And how do we account for individual differences?

The relationships between individual development, social context, and historical change are salient issues discussed in this volume, as are nonnormative and atypical events contributing to life-span change
