Physical and cognitive development in late adulthood
Research has demonstrated a range of factors that contribute to favorable physical and cognitive development in late adulthood. One of the most fundamental factors that promote appropriate physical development is life expectancy, which refers to the number of years that a person is expected to live. Capuzzi and Stauffer (2016) identified increased life expectancy for adult males and females reflect attrition of healthy individuals and this is a predictor for positive physical development in late adulthood. This link is moderated by taking a healthy diet thus maintaining the normal weight, exercising, low stress levels, lifelong learning, social support, and optimism. Apparently, these issues serve to enhance life expectancy thus favorable development.
Physical changes are also an influential factor, at least according to the researcher. Take an instance of the nervous system. According to Berk (2016), the aging of the central nervous system, which is common in late adulthood, leads to adverse physical development outcomes. While this...
