I Knew It!!!


Brains of elderly are slow because they know so much…

By Sarah Knapton, Science Correspondent

 Older people do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe.  Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been  suggested.

 Researchers say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline.  The human brain works slower in old age,” said Dr. Michael Ramscar, “but only because we have stored more information over time.  The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more.”

 Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for.  It is NOT a memory problem, it is nature’s way of making older people do more exercise.

 SO THERE!!

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)
