Book Description :

Cognitive Aging and Creativity examines the effects of cognitive aging on creative functioning. It looks at different aspects of cognition such as working memory, speed of processing, learning efficiency, and retrieval from long term memory. The book goes on to explain the degree to which changes in these different cognitive functions affect creative thinking, and considers the aging-associated changes in personality, life course issues, and motivation that will affect real world creative performance. Using both laboratory-based approaches, which seek to untangle the contributions of different functions to creativity, as revealed by aging effects, and also real world studies of aging effects on every day and on high level creative behaviour, the book concludes with practical implications of age effects on creativity for older people in work, education, and everyday life. Explores cognition and creativity through childhood to old age Considers creativity from a neuroscientific perspective Covers age effects on perception, working memory, and long-term memory Examines links between productivity, motivation, and creativity Includes case studies of older creatives such as Matisse, Lloyd-Wright, Hawking, and Darwin

Book Description :

"Creative expression in later life can be linked directly to successful aging. Beginning with theoretical models of creativity and life-span development, the contributors examine the factors that influence creative exploration: environmental, social, gender, cognitive, and personality. New theories on creative productivity in late life are presented which suggest that the potential for creativity is present in many older adults." "Using longitudinal studies and qualitative interviews, the contributors look at the role creativity plays in the lives of elders, and the way that creativity aids in the adaptation to physical aspects of aging, problem-solving, and life reminiscing." "A variety of viewpoints are presented from the perspectives of cognitive aging researchers, creativity researchers, and experts in a variety of creative domains. This text is a useful addition to courses in hermeneutics and critical gerontology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Book Description :

The Aging Consumer: Perspectives from Psychology and Marketing, 2nd edition takes stock of what is known around age and consumer behavior, identifies gaps and open questions within the research, and outlines an agenda for future research. There has been little systematic research done with respect to the most basic questions related to age and consumer behavior, such as whether older adults versus young and middle-age adults respond to marketing activities including pricing, promotions, product design, and distribution. Written by experts, The Aging Consumer compiles research on a broad range of topics on consumer marketing, from an individual to a societal level of analysis. This second edition provides new versions of chapters contained in the 2010 volume that have been updated to reflect the latest psychological and marketing research and thinking. Included also are ten new chapters which cover exciting new ground, such as changes in metacognition in older adults, motivated cognition of the aging consumer, and a global perspective on aging and the economy across cultures. This updated volume is beneficial for researchers and practitioners in marketing, consumer behavior, and advertising. Additionally, The Aging Consumer, 2nd edition will appeal to professionals in other fields such as psychology, decision sciences, gerontology and gerontological social work, and those who are concerned with normal human aging and its implications for the everyday behavior of older individuals. It will also be of interest to those in fields concerned with the societal implications of an aging population, such as economics, policy, and law.

Book Description :

Studying older adults who are aging 'successfully' (i.e., avoiding disease/disability; maintaining high cognitive and physical functioning; engaging in meaningful interpersonal/social engagement) may offer insight into variables that contribute to cognitive change throughout the lifespan. Successful aging is related to levels of engagement, which may be promoted by the problem solving and reevaluation encouraged by the creative process (Fisher & Specht, 1999). Creative thinking requires the consideration of diverse concepts and strategies (e.g., generating many solutions), as well as the regulated filtering of these possibilities (e.g., neither too permissive nor too narrow when eliminating ideas; Baas, De Dreu, & Nijstad, 2011). Cognitive inhibition is necessary for goal-directed behavior, and may also promote creativity by influencing abilities such as plasticity and innovation. Performance on executive control tasks, especially those that draw on inhibition, are impacted by age. Performance on inhibitory (but not excitatory) tasks may be sensitive to arousal levels that fluctuate with circadian rhythm (synchrony effect). The current study examined performance on a variety of neuropsychological and creativity measures at two times of the day in a sample of successfully aging adults aged 70-79. Assessments of executive function, inhibition, and creativity (i.e., verbal and non-verbal divergent thinking) were administered to older adults twice, once at a time when inhibitory performance was expected to be ideal (synchronous) and another at a time when inhibitory performance was expected to be reduced (non-synchronous). We hypothesized that morning testing (synchronous) trials of inhibitory tasks would exhibit lower latency and error rates than evening testing (non-synchronous) trials; morning testing (synchronous) trials of creative potential tasks would exhibit lower fluency, flexibility, and originality scores than evening testing (non-synchronous) trials; and that Need For Cognition (NFC) scores and Information-Orientation ISI subscale scores would be positively correlated with overall (AM + PM) creativity scores (fluency, flexibility, originality). Participants were expected to demonstrate time of day effects on Stroop and TMT performance. Synchrony effects were not observed in this study. There was a significant relation between creative potential and Need for Cognition scores but not between creative potential and scores on the Information-Orientation subscale of the ISI. The current sample may have compensated with cognitive challenges such as those induced by testing time effects. These findings may suggest that a successfully-aging cohort is not impacted by synchrony effects. No previous research has used synchrony to compare aging trajectories (pathological, usual, successful) on cognitive performance. It is feasible that a successfully aging population would have significant cognitive reserve, brain reserve, or scaffolding strategies to compensate for the additional cognitive challenge of non-optimal testing time (Düzel, Schütze, Yonelinas, & Heinze, 2011; Reuter-Lorenz & Park, 2014). Indeed, a marker of successful aging is to compensate well with age-related changes and demonstrate minimal- to no- deficits in performance (Rowe & Kahn, 1997). Synchrony changes in cognitive performance may not be evident in a successfully aging population. The current study provides evidence that motivates intriguing questions about successful aging, inhibition, creativity, and time of day.

Book Description :

This research investigated the efficacy of psycho-educational expressive arts therapy groups in equipping and empowering adults over the age of 55 for optimal functioning. Postulating that creative explorations of thought, action, and perception might enhance cognition, strengthen self-efficacy, and stimulate engagement, the researcher targeted 24 aptitudes associated with creativity and cognitive health. These are fluency, flexibility, originality, elaboration, abstracting, openness, emotional awareness, synthesis, proprioception, visualization, contextualizing, curiosity, investigating, confidence, extending, optimism, fantasy, humor, collaboration, decentrism, perception, critical thinking, metaphoric understanding, and metacognition. Participants (N=119) at five locations in the greater New York area were solicited from the public through senior center newsletters. Data was culled from those with perfect or near-perfect attendance (N=42) and a control group from the same population (N=40). The exercises combined movement/dance, visualization, improvisation, music-making, psychodrama, storytelling, breathing techniques, critical thinking, sensory enhancement, collaborative problem solving, positive psychology, and creative immersion within an atmosphere of socialization and support. Structured as the "Five A's of Creating Wellness," the intervention targeted each aptitude (e.g., flexibility) and its associated attitude ("what if"), through application (consider alternatives) of an activity (imagining and repurposing), for a resultant outcome action (mental dexterity). Assessments were the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking, the General Self-Efficacy Scale, the Flourishing Scale, and the Life Engagement Indicator Scale. Results indicated a significant difference in pre and post scores for creativity measures (p

Art Therapy and Creative Aging offers an integrated perspective on engaging with older people through the arts. Drawing from the author’s clinical, research and teaching experiences, the book explores how arts engagement can intertwine with and support healthy aging. This book combines analysis of current development theory, existing research on creative programs with elders, and case examples of therapeutic experience to critically examine ageism and demonstrate how art therapy and creative aging approaches can harness our knowledge of the cognitive and emotional development of older adults. Chapters cover consideration of generational, cultural, and historical factors; the creative, cognitive and emotional developmental components of aging; arts and art therapy techniques and methods with older adults with differing needs; and examples of best practices. Creative arts therapists, creative aging professionals, and students who seek foundational concepts and ideas for arts practice with older people will find this book instrumental in developing effective ways of using the arts to promote health and well-being and inspire engagement with this often-underserved population.
