Overview

Bringing together current theories on brain aging and the experimental methods testing and advancing these theories, Brain Aging investigates fundamental age-related changes in the brain rather than age-related neurodegeneration. While offering a breadth of coverage that will satisfy casual observers of the field, it provides significant depth to be of value to both researchers of the aging brain, as well as clinicians treating elderly patients. Written by pioneering researchers, it reviews critical studies of brain aging in animal models and new insights from human brain imaging. It also explores the distinct methodological challenges inherent in investigating the aging nervous system.
