Brain ageing

The profound social and economic impact of an ageing population highlights the need to understand the factors that influence cognitive health and the decline that occurs with age. Nature Reviews Neuroscience presents a series of articles that examine the hallmarks of ageing in the brain, the mechanisms underlying brain ageing and the implications for brain function and disease susceptibility.
