Kozma Prutkov, an image created by a group of Russian authors in the last century, once said: “If you are asked what is more useful, the sun or the moon, answer the moon, because the sun shines during the day, when it is light, but the moon shines at night.” In some ways this aphorism applied for a long time to the investigation of the central nervous system’s aging. In most cases, the researchers concentrated on the role which the change in the brain function plays in the aging of the whole organism without taking account of the fact that both the processes which increase the organism’s viability and the vitauct processes are connected with the activity of the nervous centres.
