Cellular and molecular correlates of aging in the nervous system.

Abstract

Three characteristic features of aging in the nervous system are reviewed: deficits in the regulation of nerve-cell calcium levels, increased leakage of synaptic transmitters and changes in neuronal arborization. In hippocampal cells and motor nerve terminals, the rate of calcium clearance from the immediate vicinity of the membrane decreases with age… (More)
