Abstract
Behavioral defects due to aging are discussed. A pilot study of behavioral changes over time in mice is reviewed. Changes in elastic and other connective tissues, determination in eye and ear function, and other changes associated with aging in man are discussed. Decline in impetus and the cumulative burden factors are explained. The author concludes that central nervous system changes with normal aging are highly discrete and selective, and they do not necessarily cause a general decline in behavioral effectiveness.
