Unlike any disease, age changes: 1. Occur in every multicellular animal that reaches a fixed size at reproductive maturity 2. Cross virtually all species barriers 3. Occur in all members of a species only after the age of reproductive maturation 4. Occur in all animals removed from the wild and protected by humans even when that species probably has not experienced aging for thousands or even millions of years 5.

Aging may involve a functional plasticity, or reallocation of brain network operations, when performing a cognitive task (35). Brain network activation is more lateralized in younger individuals and bilateral and more diffuse in older adults when performing the same task (36). Although neuroplasticity and capacity for neurogenesis decrease with aging, neural redundancy and plastic remodeling of brain networking, facilitated by ongoing mental and physical training, promote maintenance of brain activity in healthy elderly for everyday life and fully productive affective and intellectual capabilities (37).
