Aging reduces total neuron number in the dorsal component of the rodent prefrontal cortex.

Abstract

For many years, aging was thought to be accompanied by significant decreases in total neuron number across multiple brain regions. However, this view was revised with the advent of modern quantification methods, and it is now widely accepted that the hippocampus and many regions of the cortex show substantially preserved numbers of neurons during normal… (More)
