Oxidative Stress in Aging 277
Normal aging, an unavoidable fact of life, results in, manageable changes for most; yet, others encounter aging with immense changes in neurobiology and disease. To understand the spectrum of changes that accompany age, we must first understand the neurobiology of aging, in order to develop therapeutic or lifestyle interventions that extend the functional lifespan. There are numerous theories that assess the natural aging process. Consequentially, there are several ways to evaluate the neurobiology of aging. Currently inflammation and oxidative stress are the predominate theories of aging in the central nervous system (CNS).
