What do We Know?
Functional Biomarker Research and Its Relevance to Cognitive Aging

In the broader biomarker literature there has been much debate about the definition of biomarkers (Butler et al., 2004; Hofer, Berg, & Era, 2003) and how they relate to physiological aging and chronological age. This is complicated by several issues, including the overlap between aging and disease processes; debate about whether aging is caused by a single cause or multiple cause; and the use of animal models in biomarker research, which may not necessarily translate to humans. The discovery of biological factors that define the mechanism of ...
