Andrea Ucini was asked to illustrate the Neuroscience section for Cell Magazine about a research on why motivation declines with age. As people age, they often lose their motivation to learn new things or engage in everyday activities. In a study of mice, MIT neuroscientists have now identified a brain circuit that is critical for maintaining this kind of motivation.
