Description: Current advances in the understanding of the neural, endocrine and other body systems suggest that the process of aging may be triggered by signals originating in these systems. This hypothesis provides a framework upon which to study the effects of neuroendocrine changes upon the maturing body. Age related changes in nervous and hormonal activity regulate the timetable of important physiological events such as birth, adolescence, menopause and old age. The aim of the course is to study the specific and primary changes in physiological mechanisms that result in the process of aging. The profound physiological changes and restrictions that result make the study of the relevant biological processes fundamental to gerontology.

Prerequisites: BIO*101-102 or BIO*150-151 or BMS*117 BMS*162
