Abstract

Iit is generally accepted that aging is associated with a decline in neuronal function. It remains to be established whether this decline is the result of neuronal degeneration and/or reduced functioning of aged neurons. This neurobiological aspect remains insufficiently known, probably as a result of the difficulty in obtaining an appropriate animal model. Recently a population of rats older than 30 months, which is approximately the maximum life expectancy of these rodents, was investigated with a series of biochemical parameters with the aim of establishing whether brain catecholamines were affected by senescence.
