The human brain is a target of the aging process like other cell systems of the human body. Specific regions of the human brain exhibit differential vulnerabilities to the aging process. Yet the underlying mechanisms that sustain the preservation or deterioration of neurons and cerebral functions are
unknown. In this review, we focus attention on the role of lipids and the importance of the cross-regionally different vulnerabilities in human brain aging. In particular, we first consider a brief approach to the lipidomics of human brain, the relationship between lipids and lipoxidative damage, the role of lipids in human brain aging, and the specific targets of lipoxidative damage in human brain and during aging. It is proposed that the restricted set of modified proteins and the functional categories involved may be considered putative collaborative factors contributing to neuronal aging, and that mitochondrial ATP synthase is a key lipoxidative target in human brain aging.
