The process of aging affects everyone, whether it be ourselves or the people we love. Some of us age in good health, while others can succumb to a variety of health problems, the most frightening of which can be the loss of brain function. This week, we speak with Dr. Stephen Kritchevsky, the Director of the Sticht Center on Aging at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, here in Winston Salem, where research is being done to understand and counter the effects of the aging process.

Your Brain... A Social Network?

Human brain network from functional brain imaging data. This network shows the functional connectivity of the resting human brain. Each node in the network represents a small piece of brain tissue. The brain areas are connected if they have highly synchronized brain activity.

Human made items tend to be engineered and built. We look at them from a reductionist point of view. For example, a car engine is made up of many parts, but if you remove one part the car isn’t going to run. Traditionally we have looked at the human brain with the same point of view; each part has its own specific role and if you damage one part you lose that function. However, Dr. Paul Laurienti from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Department of Radiology and his team are using what’s known as “Complexity Science” to take a different approach.
