I’ve known this for some time

November 19, 2014
Elderly people have so much information in their brain that it takes longer for them to access it, scientists believe.

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 filled up with data, humans too, as they age and absorb ever increasing masses of information, naturally take longer to access their data, 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.”

SO THERE ! We Are All Extra Smart !
