A central goal of the Simons Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain (SCPAB) is to understand how learning and other cognitive functions change with age. To find essential molecular, cellular and circuit changes, researchers are searching for similarities in brain aging in six different species: worms, mice, rats, killifish, monkeys and humans.
A new, interactive infographic allows users to explore the different SCPAB-funded projects by species, age range, brain region and type of data, including gene expression, neural activity and behavior. The infographic also aligns aging curves across species. Access the infographic here.
