Chaotic clocks
A preprint published in bioRxiv has demonstrated that the second-generation aging clocks PhenoAge, DunedinPACE, and GrimAge show increased but reversible age acceleration in mice and people exposed to significant stress. What clocks are for Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl...

She proposes using the concept of stress resilience to capture the differences between beneficial and harmful stress and the multi-level response that mediates the link between stress and aging. Different types of...
