About this book

 This volume discusses the current state of research findings related to healthy brain aging by integrating human clinical studies and translational research in animal models.  Several chapters offer a unique overview of successful aging, age-related cognitive decline and its associated structural and functional brain changes, as well as how these changes are influenced by reproductive aging.  Insights provided by preclinical studies in mouse models and advanced neuroimaging techniques in humans are also presented.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A critical issue involved is the distinction between normal and pathological aging. This excellent new book covers this issue with an excellent review of the neuroscience of aging. Written and edited by a group of international neuroscientists, the book is a welcome addition to the psychiatric literature. … This is an exceptional book on the behavioral neuroscience of aging. Reading this informative book would enhance researchers’ and clinicians’ knowledge base.” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2012)
