Neuroscience of Aging

The study of changes in the nervous system that mainly happens during aging is called neuroscience of aging. The normal functional changes which are noticed are inability to focus, decrease in processing speed, decreased neural efficiency and nerve conductance. Neurogenesis takes place very little in adults, and it occurs only in the hypothalamus and striatum to a small extent in a process called adult neurogenesis. The volume of the brain decreases roughly 5% per decade after forty. It is currently unclear why the brain volume reduces with age, however, some causes may include: cell death, decreased cell volume, and changes in synaptic structure.
