Wit and Wisdom for the Weekend!

Brains of elderly slow because they know so much!! The brains of older people only appear to slow down because they have so much information to compute, much like a full hard drive, scientists believe.
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, so too do older humans take longer to access information.
Researchers say this slowing down 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."
GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY, GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL -- Yep, this is my Philosophy and I'm sticking to it!!!
And remember ---

And that is my sermon for the weekend!  May all of you have a beautiful one filled with love and laughter and beauty!!

I knew all that many years before the scientists decided it was true. I love the optional part about growing up. I am glad to have options. MB

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
