Temperature affects longevity and age-related locomotor and cognitive decay in the short-lived fish Nothobranchius furzeri.


Temperature variations are known to modulate aging and life-history traits in poikilotherms as different as worms, flies and fish. In invertebrates, temperature affects lifespan by modulating the slope of age-dependent acceleration in death rate, which is thought to reflect the rate of age-related damage accumulation. Here, we studied the effects of… (More)
