Science - Brains Growth Continues

What Is Good for the Brain?

Change is good for the brain. Research has confirmed that the human brain possesses the ability to change throughout life, including into our senior years. Our brain performs better when it is active and exposed to novel experiences. A brain healthy lifestyle includes a variety of brain-stimulating activities including reading, socializing with friends, puzzles and more.

Our Brain is Still Developing

Neuroscientists provide an exciting new view of how our brains age. Research shows that our brains continue developing new neurons, even into our seventies. Scientists no longer believe that we lose extreme numbers of brain cells as we grow older.

The aging brain begins cross-indexing information in new ways. While we can’t cram as much information into our memory as we did when we were in school, we are better able to manage new experiences and deal with uncertainty.
