This chapter provides an overview of our current understanding of emotions and their measurement in older people. The first part briefly reviews our current understanding of both "the elderly" in general and various facets of emotional aging, such as emotional experiences, emotion regulation, emotion perception, emotion-related attention, and memory. The multidirectionality of the late-life development in the different emotion-related functional domains is stressed. The second part describes published results on the application of various emotion measurement tools in older populations. For all these methods, their general suitability for emotion measurement in elderly populations is discussed and, where applicable, directions for future research are pointed out.
