New AI model uncovers how and why the human brain ages

Posted by in categories: information science, life extension, robotics/AI

Researchers developed ‘HistoAge,’ an algorithm that unravels brain aging and neurodegenerative disorders.

As we age, our brains undergo structural and cellular changes influenced by intrinsic and external factors. Accelerated aging in the brain can result in an increased risk of neurodegenerative conditions, bipolar disorder, and mortality. In a bid to deeply understand how an aging brain works, researchers say they have built a powerful AI tool that can identify regions in the brain vulnerable to age-related changes.

The team used AI to develop an algorithm called ‘HistoAge,’ which predicts age at death based on the cellular composition of human brain tissue specimens with an average accuracy… More.
