Many aspects of aging and longevity are beyond our control.

These results raise questions about age-related gene expression changes, including whether metabolically active non-brain tissues display identical patterns, and whether the divergence between individual and chimp patterns was the immediate result of selection or an unavoidable consequence of some other difference in mind evolution. The patterns seen here provide a starting place for understanding genetic adjustments in aging, and may reveal targets for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.. Aging and gene expression in the primate brain While medical science and a wholesome lifestyle can help increase life expectancy, many aspects of aging and longevity are beyond our control.Dooling, Ph.D., David E.
