Beta2-adrenergic receptor gene polymorphisms as systemic determinants of healthy aging in an evolutionary context.
(Mech Ageing Dev, 2010-05)
The Gln(27)Glu polymorphism but not the Arg(16)Gly polymorphism of the beta2-adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) gene appears to be associated with a broad range of aging-associated phenotypes, including cancers at different sites, ...
Differential developmental trajectories of magnetic susceptibility in human brain gray and white matter over the lifespan.
(Hum Brain Mapp, 2014-06)
As indicated by several recent studies, magnetic susceptibility of the brain is influenced mainly by myelin in the white matter and by iron deposits in the deep nuclei. Myelination and iron deposition in the brain evolve ...
Age-related effects on the neural correlates of autobiographical memory retrieval.
(Neurobiol Aging, 2012-07)
Older adults recall less episodically rich autobiographical memories (AM), however, the neural basis of this effect is not clear. Using functional MRI, we examined the effects of age during search and elaboration phases ...
Adult age differences in functional connectivity during executive control.
Task switching requires executive control processes that undergo age-related decline. Previous neuroimaging studies have identified age-related differences in brain activation associated with global switching effects (dual-task ...
The temporal distribution of autobiographical memory: changes in reliving and vividness over the life span do not explain the reminiscence bump.
(Mem Cognit, 2011-01)
When autobiographical memories are elicited with word cues, personal events from middle childhood to early adulthood are overrepresented compared to events from other periods. It is, however, unclear whether these memories ...
