Ending Aging

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Scientists who study the biology of Aging agreed that we would someday be able to slow down the aging process substantially.

Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer at SENS Research Foundation and VP of New Technology Discovery at AgeX Therapeutics believes that the critical biomedical technology required to eliminate aging derived debilitation and death is now within reach.

In his book “Ending Aging” he and his research assistant Michael Rae described the details of this biotechnology. They explained that the Aging of the human body, just like the Aging of manmade machines, results from an accumulation of various types of damage. As with manmade machines, this damage can periodically be repaired, leading to the indefinite extension of the machines fully functional lifetime just as is routinely done with classic cars.

The 2020 Undoing Aging Conference is rescheduled to October (21−23)

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

We will be issuing ticket refunds to attendees, who cannot attend the new date.


Berlin / Mountain View, March 12, 2020.

Forever Healthy Foundation and SENS Research Foundation have decided to reschedule Undoing Aging 2020 to October, 21–23. Following the WHO’s declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, we will do our share to prevent it from spreading further. We will be issuing ticket refunds to attendees, who cannot attend the new date.

Is Aging a Disease? | LifeXtenShow

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Nicola Bagalà is one of the best advocates of rejuvenation therapies that I know. I follow him since he did a blog called “Rejuvenaction” some years ago. In this video, he discusses in a profound way a very important question. I ask everybody of the rejuvenation community: don’t miss this video, let’s spread it on YouTube, Facebook and social media, and let’s give this video the audience it needs and deserves. It’s not everyday we have such opportunity.


Does biological aging qualify as a disease? Does this affect the development of therapies that treat and prevent age-related diseases? Here’s Nicola’s take on the subject.

The role of cognitive operations in reality monitoring: a study with healthy older adults and Alzheimer’s-type dementia

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

J Gen Psychol. 2009 Jan;136:21–39. doi: 10.3200/GENP.136.1.21–40.

The authors examined the role of cognitive operations in discriminations between externally and internally generated events (e.g., reality monitoring) in healthy and pathological aging. The authors used 2 reality-monitoring distinctions to manipulate the quantity and quality of necessary cognitive operations: discriminating between I performed versus I imagined performing and between I watched another perform versus I imagined another performing. Older adults had more difficulty than did younger adults when discriminating between memories in both versions of the task. In addition, older adults with Alzheimer’s-type dementia showed marked difficulties when attributing a source to imagined actions. The authors interpret these findings in terms of an age difficulty or the failure to use cognitive operations as useful cues during source monitoring.
