Lychnos 8. Special issue on ageing

lychnos8_0

Lychnos 8, published in March 2012, takes a look at the subject of ageing from various angles and disciplines. The results of the survey run by the Fundación General CSIC on ageing-related R&D offer an introduction to the phenomenon, and Clara Parapar (FGCSIC) offers a preliminary analysis.

The second section of the journal covers the five research projects in psychosocial studies and technologies selected by the Proyectos Cero 2011 call for project proposals addressing ageing issues, sponsored by Obra Social «la Caixa» and supported by the CSIC. The project entitled “Worthplay. Videogames for active and healthy ageing” is presented by Josep Blat (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), Josep Lluís Argos (CSIC) and Sergio Sayago (University of Dundee). Next, Eva Chinarro and Berta Moreno (CSIC) give an overview of their research on “Biomaterials for the modulation of the inflammation causing age-related macular degeneration.” Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) applications to prevent the effects of ageing are then described by Roberto Hornero, Rebeca Corralejo and Daniel Álvarez (Biomedical Engineering Group, University of Valladolid). Concepció Patxot (University of Barcelona) introduces the topic of “Pensions and education: combined effects on inter- and intra-generational income distribution.” This section of the journal is rounded off an article by de Juan Subirats and Mercé Pérez Salanova (Barcelona Autonomous University) on “The challenge of new citizenship. New narratives and new policies for different elderly people.”

The Social Welfare Area of Obra Social “la Caixa” describes its programme for the elderly. The third section of the journal is then rounded off with an interview with Jaume Lanaspa, Executive Director of Obra Social “la Caixa” and Director of Fundación “la Caixa”.

In the fourth section, various experts describe the phenomenon of ageing in relation to information technology, Mario Piattini (University of Castile-La Mancha) and Jose Luis Fernández Nuevo (FGCSIC); language, Pilar García Moutón (CSIC); and research, Javier López Facal (CSIC) and José Manuel Conde (UAM).

Lychnos 8 is closed with an opinion article by María-Angeles Durán (CSIC) in the Forum section entitled “Retired, but not old.”
