Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The potential relation between metabolic activity within the central nervous system and retention of cognitive functioning capacity was assessed.

RESULTS:

A large body of scientific evidence describes the interactions among cognitive activity, oxidative stress, neurodegeneration, neuroprotection, cognitive aging, and retention of cognitive functioning ability.

CONCLUSION:

Maintenance of redox balance within the central nervous system can forestall cognitive decline and promote cognitive longevity.
