Title: Aging white matter is inherently more prone to ischemic injury
Chinthasagar Bastian, PhD (Postdoctoral Fellow, Laboratory of Dr. Selva Baltan)

Aging increases the risk for stroke independent of vascular changes.  Previous studies have shown that aging has minimal effects on gray matter while causing prominent structural changes in white matter. Therefore, we characterized the ultrastructural changes in aging white matter by investigating the alterations in axon /myelin, nodal structures and mitochondrial dynamics. Then we tested whether these structural changes led to functional modifications to underlie the increased vulnerability of aging white matter to ischemic injury.
