Plasticity and the Aging Brain

The Simons Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain aims to discover mechanisms of resilience and maintenance in the aging brain and to establish a baseline for age-related changes in plasticity across many model systems, in order to identify potential interventions to minimize cognitive decline and extend healthy lifespan.
