There has been a dramatic improvement in the intellectual and physical abilities of the elderly. Older people are younger than ever, is the message from Ingmar Skoog, professor of psychiatry and director of AgeCap. This fall, he debuts as an author with a popular science book about aging. It builds on his work in the world-renowned H70 study, which he has led for decades and is one of the broadest and first studies of the elderly to have been conducted. In the forthcoming book, Ingmar explains, among other things, how aging has changed over half a century and the reasons why the older population is so much younger today.
