There is an Inca incantation which acknowledged acknowledged approximately: "Lord, provide me non secular peace in order that i will be able to acquiesce to what i will not switch, supply me braveness in order that i will swap what i will swap, and provides me knowledge in order that i will distinguish one from the opposite. " evidently, this incantation might be on a regular basis repeated by means of any gerontologist, because it is especially tricky to tell apart getting older from the methods which complement the organism's viability, getting older from ailments, and the mechanisms of getting older in numerous species of animals. in line with N. surprise, who compiled a useful bibliography of the works on getting older, greater than 43,000 works on gerontology were released within the final decade. Why will we proceed to disagree with each other and carry that an important mechanisms are nonetheless mostly unknown to us even with that move of data and a tremendous variety of proof? what's it that we don't be aware of? may possibly or not it's that we don't comprehend the only sacramental truth that could clarify every little thing, resembling the hormone of getting older, the programmed triggering of a suicide gene, the looks of a different poisonous agent within the axoplasmic move of drugs, and so on? Goethe as soon as wrote scientist customarily holds yes elements, yet regrettably he lacks their sacred link.

Example text

The destruction of neurons is not only a certain objective measure of various brain structures' aging, but also an important mechanism of a change in their functions. The functions of a nerve centre are inevitably affected when the number of neurons decreases by 30 or 40 per cent in it. The structure of the neuron chains and the plurality and duplication of the interneuronal links are an extremely important mechanism of vitauct, which helps to preserve the functions when a part of the nerve cells dies.

Processes in which metabolic potentials are not only spent, but also restored; consequently, complicated links are created between Mechanisms of the Life Span of a Species 25 them and the life span. Whatever the case, there is a natural link between the duration of the stages of ontogeny, the intensity of metabolism and the species life span. Thus, the species life span is a function of ontogeny as an intricate interaction between vitauct and aging, and not simply the rate of aging, which is erroneously believed to begin with the loss of reproductivity.

An interesting fact is that the number of neurons decreases less in the hypothalamus (except some regions, namely, Nucleus arcuatus and the preoptic region) than in other brain structures.
