Interesting Fact - Age

Good news for once! Some areas of the brain do not peak until we are in our fifties.

(A published paper in the journal Psychological Science, states that each cognitive skill peaks at a different age.

For example, raw speed in processing information appears to peak around age 18 or 19, then immediately starts to decline.

Short-term memory continues to improve until around age 25, when it levels off and then begins to drop around age 35.

The ability to recognize faces improves until the early 30s before gradually starting to decline,  but the ability to evaluate another person's emotional state peaks in our 40s or 50s.

At 60 we are still learning new vocabulary skills, and between 60 - 70+: our intelligence actually peaks.

I think the main point is, just keep learning, keep on learning, learn, learn learning.)
