In this paper we review the last several years of work from our lab with attention to changes in the properties of basal forebrain neurons during aging. These neurons play a central role in behavioral functions, such as: attention, arousal, cognition and autonomic activity, and these functions can be adversely affected during aging. Therefore, it is fundamental to define the cellular mechanisms of aging in order to understand the basal forebrain and to correct deficits associated with aging. We… CONTINUE READING
