This is a story: a story about neurobiology and aging and imaging and neurodegeneration, but most substantially it is about neuronal-circuits and networks--and how they resist the ravages of age and neuropathology. There are many ways for readers to augment their NBOA (Neurobio of Aging) knowledge, but this is a book you can read straight through and hopefully with considerable ease or at least interest. From cellular and DNA damage to neuronal pathology, from neural system dysfunction to fMRI/connectome analytics, and from clinical imaging of dementia to pharmaceutical approaches, the study of NBOA is an epic journey. This book is a good start. You can begin building a wealth of knowledge architectures in your mind.

About the Author

Donald O'Malley has a PhD in Physiology and Biophysics from Harvard Medical School. Since 2016, he has been teaching a course titled The Neurobiology of Cognitive Decline. This book emphasizes the breakdown of neural systems with age and pathology including the failure of neural computations, areas where Dr. O'Malley has considerable expertise.

Dr. Madigan has a Ph.D. in Neuropsychology and had worked for many years as a staff neuropsychologist in the Cognitive Neurology Unit at Beth Israel hospital in Boston. She currently sees patients in private practice.

Lucille, Kate and Whitney are all NU students or alumni who contributed to chapters in this book.
