The achievement that cytokines and all the related "transducing machinery" are expressed within the central nervous system and play a consistent role in the modulation of neurological functions and dysfunctions, has allowed a novel interpretation of brain behaviour. In this view, neuroinflammation and cytokines production has been acknowledged as potential triggers of the functional changes occurring in the brain during "normal" and "pathological" aging. In particular the aged brain seems to be… CONTINUE READING
