HEALTHY AGING AND PATHOLOGICAL AGING IN THE CNS Various studies have endeavored to describe changes in the CNS that occur with healthy aging by differentiating those with changes that mark pathological aging. , 2009). Evidence suggests that in healthy aging, brain shrinkage can be minimal and does not appear to correlate with any important limitation in functional ability. , 2000). , 2000). Literature supports the concept that older people can be healthy and functionally stable into advanced age, and pathological conditions precede and determine functional loss.

Unfortunately, this delicate balance inherently favors the destruction of bone, as the resorptive portion of a remodeling cycle takes ~3 weeks, compared to the ~3 months required for complete bone formation. The nature of this inherent imbalance between formation and resorption time can be easily appreciated if one imagines a packet of bone as a moving truck. Unpacking a moving truck (resorption) is relatively quick and easy, as one simply has to pull out the contents and put them elsewhere. By contrast, packing a moving truck (formation) requires careful attention to packing the items into boxes, carefully arranging those boxes to fit into the cargo space and then securing them all for the move (in the case of our metaphor – producing collagen, secreting and aligning collagen fibrils, and mineralizing the newly formed matrix).
