But what exactly is going on with your body? Here's what you can expect as you age. (Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research USA)

Kahn, Ph.D., share the results of a 10-year study by the MacArthur Foundation to find out how people can preserve and enhance their mental and physical health in later life. (Alliance for Aging Research USA)
