Future Diagnostic and Therapeutic Strategies: A Realistic Forecast
The degenerative changes occurring in the aging brain appear to affect many different types of neurons in vast areas of the brain, leading to functional losses of varying type and severity. Senile dementia, depression, and Parkinson’s disease may be looked upon as manifestations of severe imbalances between neuronal systems caused by degenerative processes. To combat the age-related losses of brain function will require a tremendous effort, involving the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Recent progress in these areas offers promise that by the year 2000, some of these problems will be overcome.
