Researchers during their research found the part of the brain that does not deteriorate over time. Presentation at the XII International conference on cognitive neuroscience (Australia, Brisbane) has caused considerable response in the scientific community. Age-most structures of the brain undergoes degeneration, however, there is a plot, which does not change over the years - he is responsible for spatial attention and orienteering. For spatial attention is necessary for normal operation of the hippocampus. By the way, the hippocampus is necessary for the vast majority of the types of higher nervous activity: from movements to the management of complex technical facilities.
Scientists have conducted a series of tests for the evaluation of spatial attention. It turned out that the aging process does not affect this function. The test results were the same in all age categories.
