Gerontology refers to the study of physiological and psychological changes concomitant with old age, whereas geriatrics refers to the study of health problems and diseases prevalent in old age. Geriatric psychiatry otherwise known as psychogeriatrics, geropsychiatry or the psychiatry of old age corresponds to the study of age dependent psychogenic disorders. These mental disorders are usually accompanied with continuous sickness, gradual deterioration of physical health and the resultant socioeconomic burdens.
Research advancements in the field of aging focus on the changes in the physiological, molecular and subcellular activities corresponding to increasing age while geriatric psychiatry focus on the identification of common mental disorders in old age and their treatment.
