A new study shows that the brain does not slow down after the age of 60 as the common belief says. Instead, researchers say that people just become “more cautious” as they age.
So as you age, you’re not slow, you’re steady!
Researchers analyzed data from over 1 million people aged 10 to 80 and gave them tests sorting words and racial categories. They found that average processing time peaked at age 20. Older participants may have been a bit slower to answer but they made fewer mistakes, proving that thinking fast is not always thinking best.
This is called wisdom, kiddos!
