About the Journal
Journal of Aging and Geriatric Medicine (AGM) is a peer reviewed Open Access journal that publishes research information in the field of Geriatric Medicine and Geriatrics with a view to disseminate recent advancements for improvement of health care systems of elderly or older population across the globe. The Journal provides a platform for clinicians, surgeons, researchers and health professionals to contribute their findings and awareness among community and aims to set a forum for publication, education, and exchange of opinions in various aspects of Aging research and clinical Geriatrics in all medical and surgical subspecialties.
The Journal focuses on the wide spread dissemination of recent advances in all research areas of Geriatric Medicine that includes: Gerontology, Aging Science, Biology of Aging, mechanisms of aging, Aging & Disability, Aging Associated Diseases (Parkinson, Alzheimer), Aging Demographics, Geriatric Psychiatry, Geriatric Diseases and Syndromes, Diagnostics, Treatment and Clinical Interventions in Aging.
Submission and processing of the manuscripts can be done online through the Editorial Manager System which helps maintaining the quality of the peer review process and provides easy access to the authors to track the status of the manuscript, including evaluation and publication in an automated way. Subject experts under the supervision of the Editor-in-Chief review the manuscripts. Approval of at least two independent reviewers and the editor is mandatory for the acceptance of the manuscript for publication.
Gerontology is the study of aging and older adults. The science of geriatrics could be a multidisciplinary field and has evolved as longevity has improved. Researchers during this field are numerous and are trained in areas like physiology, scientific discipline, psychology, public health, and policy. Geriatrics encompasses biogerontology, sociogerontology, psychogerontology, geroscience, sociology and environmental geriatrics.

Aging Science is a branch of science that involves in biology of human aging. It deals with the treatment aged connected diseases. Cognitive, psychological, social and biological aspects of aging are enclosed in aging science.

Aging is accumulation of changes during a person over time, encompassing physical, psychological, and social modification. Aging harm happens to deoxyribonucleic acid, proteins, and lipids, to cells and to organs. Diseases of maturity like inflammatory disease, pathology, cardiopathy, cancer, prehensile dementia are usually distinguished from aging. It’s characterised by the declining ability to retort to worry, enhanced physiological condition imbalance, and enhanced risk of aging-associated diseases

Mechanism of Aging
Mechanism of Aging is programmed aging attributable to one thing within an organism's management mechanisms that forces elderliness & deterioration, just like the approach genes program different life-stages like cell differentiation throughout embryological development or sexual maturation at adolescence.

Cognitive Impairment in older adults contains a varied potential causes, as well as medication aspect effects, metabolic and/or endocrine derangements, delirium as a result of intercurrent unhealthiness, depression and dementia. Some causes, like medication aspect effects and depression, are often reversed with treatment. Others, like Alzheimer’s sickness, cannot be reversed, however symptoms are often treated for a amount of your time.

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a chronic and progressive movement disorder that means that symptoms continue and worsen over time. Parkinson’s involves the malfunction and death of significant nerve cells within the brain, referred to as neurons. This malady primarily affects neurons in a district of the brain referred to as the neural structure. a number of these dying neurons manufacture Dopastat, a chemical that sends messages to the a part of the brain that controls movement and coordination. As metal progresses, the number of Dopastat created within the brain decreases, going away an individual unable to regulate movement ordinarily.

Alzheimer’s Disease is the commonest explanation for insanity. The word insanity describes a group of symptoms which will embody blackout and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. These symptoms occur once the brain is broken by bound diseases, together with Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s named once the doctor WHO 1st delineated it could be a physical disease that affects the brain. Throughout the course of the unwellness, proteins build up within the brain to create structures known as 'plaques' and 'tangles'. This results in the loss of connections between nerve cells, and eventually to the death of nerve cells and loss of brain tissue and could be a progressive disease.
