July 19, 2022

Aging-US published this trending research paper as the cover for Volume 14, Issue 13, entitled, "Epigenetic clocks and their association with trajectories in perceived discrimination and depressive symptoms among US middle-aged and older adults" by researchers from Laboratory of Epidemiology and Population Sciences, NIA/NIH/IRP, Baltimore, MD; Department of Research Programs, Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, Fort Belvoir, VA; Department of Psychology, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Catonsville, MD; Department of Demography, University of California Berkeley, Berkeley, CA. DOI - Corresponding author - May A. Beydoun - Abstract In this article, we present a deep learning model of human psychology that can predict one’s current age and future well-being. We used the model to demonstrate that one’s baseline well-being is not the determining factor of future well-being, as posited by hedonic treadmill theory. Further, we have created a 2D map of human psychotypes and identified the regions that are most vulnerable to depression. This map may be used to provide personalized recommendations for maximizing one’s future well-being.
