    • Older professionals, learning and practice 

      IreneTikkanen, Tarja; Billett, Stephen (International Handbook of Research in Professional and Practice-based Learning, 2014)
      Globally, workforce is aging. Workers aged over 50 are becoming an increasingly significant and large component of national workforces. This situation is likely to remain the case for the next few decades. Despite workplaces ...
    • Older workers and learning through work: the need for agency and critical reflection 

      Billett, Stephen; van Woerkom, Marianne (Promoting lifelong learning for older workers, 2006)
      This chapter argues that all the workers are caught up in a contradictory discourse about work and remaining competent throughout their working life. While claiming to be equally valued, these workers face a lack of support. ...
    • Older workers and work: societal and personal sentiments 

      Billett, Stephen; Johnson, Greer; Dymock, Darryl; Martin, Greg (AVETRA 2010, 2010)
      This conference paper examines the perceptions of a group of employees aged 45 or more about their experiences of age discrimination in the work place. Retaining older workers is one way in which a productive work force ...
    • Older workers, employability and tertiary education and training 

      Billett, Stephen (Older workers: Research readings, 2011)
      As working populations age, issues associated with older workers' employability and lifelong learning arise for national economies, enterprises, communities and workers. This paper seeks to outline the range and extent of ...
    • Older workers: Strategies to extend working lives 

      Shacklock, Kate (ANZAM, 2004)
      Australia's population and workforce are ageing and the continuing trend for early retirement of the Baby Boomer generation, combined with low birth rates, will result in a labour shortage. There is therefore an imperative ...
    • Older workers: Do they want to continue working? 

      Shacklock, Kate (4th National Emerging Researchers in Ageing Conference, 2005)
      As part of the solution to the predicted future labour shortage, Australia will need older workers to fill its worker ranks, and as part of increasing their labour force participation, extended working lives is a popular ...
    • The oldest human fossil in Europe, from Orce (Spain) 

      Toro-Moyano, Isidro; Martinez-Navarro, Bienvenido; Agusti, Jordi; Souday, Caroline; Bermudez de Castro, Jose Maria; Martinon-Torres, Maria; Fajardo, Beatriz; Duval, Mathieu; Falgueres, Christophe; Oms, Oriol; Pares, Josep Maria; Anadon, Pere; Julia, Ramon; Garcia-Aguilar, Jose Manuel; Moigne, Anne-Marie; Espigares, M. Patrocinio; Ros-Montoya, Sergio; Palmqvist, Paul (Journal of Human Evolution, 2013)
      The Orce region has one of the best late Pliocene and early Pleistocene continental paleobiological records of Europe. It is situated in the northeastern sector of the intramontane Guadix-Baza Basin (Granada, Andalusia, ...
    • Oldest pathology in a tetrapod bone illuminates the origin of terrestrial vertebrates 

      Bishop, Peter James; Walmsley, Christopher; Phillips, Matthew; Quayle, Michelle; Boisvert, Catherine; McHenry, Colin (PLoS One, 2015)
      The origin of terrestrial tetrapods was a key event in vertebrate evolution, yet how and when it occurred remains obscure, due to scarce fossil evidence. Here, we show that the study of palaeopathologies, such as broken ...
    • Oleg Stepanov 

      Stepanov, Oleg (Australian Pianists: a cross-section of performers offers insights into aspects of pianism, 2010)
    • Olfactory ability in the healthy population: Reassessing presbyosmia 

      Mackay-Sim, Alan; Johnston, Amy; Owen, Caroline; Burne, Thomas (Chemical Senses, 2006)
      Age-associated loss of olfactory function, or presbyosmia, has been described in many studies of olfactory ability. Presbyosmia has been ascribed to idiopathic causes despite recognition that many neurodegenerative diseases ...
    • Olfactory discrimination predicts cognitive decline among community-dwelling older adults 

      Sohrabi, HR; Bates, KA; Weinborn, MG; Johnston, Amy; Bahramian, A; Taddei, K; Laws, SM; Rodrigues, M; Moricci, M; Howard, M; Martins, G; Mackay-Sim, Alan; Gandy, SE; Martins, RN (Translational Psychiatry, 2012)
      The presence of olfactory dysfunction in individuals at higher risk of Alzheimer's disease has significant diagnostic and screening implications for preventive and ameliorative drug trials. Olfactory threshold, discrimination ...
    • Olfactory dysfunction after head injury 

      Haxel, Boris; Grant, Leah; Mackay-Sim, Alan (Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation, 2008)
      Objective: To determine the incidence of olfactory dysfunction after head trauma using clinical and radiologic findings, quantitative assessment, and electro-physiologic methods. Participants: A total of 190 patients ...
    • Olfactory Dysfunction is Associated with Subjective Memory Complaints in Community-Dwelling Elderly Individuals 

      R. Sohrabi, Hamid; A. Bates, Kristyn; Rodrigues, Mark; Taddei, Kevin; M. Laws, Simon; T. Lautenschlager, Nicola; S. Dhaliwal, Satvinder; Johnston, Amy; Mackay-Sim, Alan; Gandy, Samuel; K. Foster, Jonathan; N. Martins, Ralph (Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, 2009)
      Olfactory dysfunction has been reported in clinical and preclinical phases of Alzheimer's disease. Subjective memory complaints have been proposed as a potential early indicator for increased risk of Alzheimer's disease, ...
    • Olfactory ensheathing cells and spinal cord repair 

      Mackay-Sim, Alan (Keio Journal of Medicine, 2005)
      The olfactory ensheathing cell is a specialized glial cell that assists in growth of the axons of the olfactory sensory neurons as they are generated and regenerated throughout adult life. There is increasing evidence in ...
    • Olfactory ensheathing cells are the main phagocytic cells that remove axon debris during early development of the olfactory system 

      Nazareth, Lynn; E. Lineburg, Katie; Chuah, Meng Inn; Tello Velasquez, Johana; Chehrehasa, Fatemeh; St John, James; Ekberg, Jenny (Journal of Comparative Neurology, 2014)
      During development of the primary olfactory system, axon targeting is inaccurate and axons inappropriately project within the target layer or over-project into the deeper layers of the olfactory bulb. As a consequence there ...
    • Olfactory ensheathing cells are the principal phagocytic cells that clear debris from axons during embryonic development of the olfactory system 

      Nazareth, Lynn Leo; Lineburg, K.; Chuah, Meng Inn; Tello Velasquez, Johana Paola; Chehrehasa, F.; St John, James Anthony; Ekberg, Jenny A (13th Australasian Association for Chemosensory Science, 2014)

      Mackay-Sim, Alan; St John, James (Experimental Neurology, 2011)
      Olfactory mucosa, the sense organ of smell, is an adult tissue that is regenerated and repaired throughout life to maintain the integrity of the sense of smell. When the sensory neurons of the olfactory epithelium die they ...
    • Olfactory ensheathing cells proliferate from local OECs and from precursors in the olfactory mucosa after different type of injuries 

      Chehrehasa, F.; Ekberg, Jenny A; Amaya, Daniel Alejandro; Mackay-Sim, Alan; St John, James Anthony (Federation of European Neuroscience Societies Featured Regional Meeting 2013, 2013)
      Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) support the regeneration of olfactory sensory neurons throughout life. However, it remains unclear how OECs respond to a major injury and whether OEC precursors within the olfactory mucosa ...
