Images showing how the brain ages

These fluorescence scans from brain cells show the difference in molecular markers (one marker in each row) between young brain cells (columns 1 and 2) and old cells (columns 3 and 4). The difference between columns 1 and 3 gives us markers whose activity increases substantially in aging cells. [Image Credit: von Zglinicki et al, Aging Cell]
