Summary
To most people, old age means gray hair and wrinkled skin-but that's just the surface. In this program, anatomist Gunther von Hagens and pathologist John Lee focus on the rarely seen, internal effects of aging. The body of a woman who died in her 80s is analyzed in sections, then contrasted with corresponding sections from a young woman. Comparing age to a progressive disease, von Hagens and Lee expose the lungs, heart, liver, stomach, and the aged brain-which contains more pronounced folds and thinner gray matter than a young brain-as well as the colon, which becomes more distended with age, leading to the digestive complaints common among the elderly
