As life expectancy increases, age-related diseases and cognitive disorders are becoming more prevalent. Are age-related decreases in cognitive and behavioral functions reversible? Can slowing the rate of aging, as has been demonstrated in animal models, decrease the appearance of age-associated diseases?

Our expert panelists discussed these pertinent issues at the German Center for Research and Innovation.
