The Aging Brain
This chapter provides an overview of some of the changes in brain structure and function that have been observed with normal human aging. Information about neuroanatomical changes is presented first, followed by discussion of selected neurotransmitter changes and neurophysiological investigations. Each section is organized in two parts, with descriptions of biological measures and their age-related changes preceding reviews of studies that attempt to relate biological and behavioral measures.
