Seated above and overlapping the other three segments is the cerebral cortex (often simply called the ‘cortex’), the wrinkled ‘top’ of the brain. Generally, the further a structure is away from the spinal cord, the more sophisticated its functions. The brain stem is chiefly concerned with the maintenance of ‘life support’ mechanisms, such as control of blood pressure, digestion, respiration, and so forth. It also receives inputs from the senses and channels them through to other systems in the brain.

One possible cause is decreased cerebral blood flow, leading to neurons starving of oxygen and thus dying. However, Hunziker et al. (1978) demonstrated that changes in cerebral blood supply seem to be an adjustment to a decline in the number of neurons rather than vice versa. Another explanation is that many older people suffer from miniature strokes or infarcts, where a minute portion of the brain atrophies because of the demise of the local blood supply. The older person is unaware of this happening, and it is worth stressing that usually the number of infarcts is small, and can be regarded as symptomatic of normal ageing.
