Autonomic Changes in Aging
The subject of my paper, reflecting as it does very different anatomic sites from the lofty location of the cortical complex, places me in an awkward position. It is hardly a case of bringing coals to Newcastle, but rather more analogous to delivering a bikini to a Bedouin tribesman. Not only is there a risk that it won’t cover much but, besides, who needs it.
