Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of technology established in old age reduces the memory and improves the function of the emotional part of the nervous system. In the period from 18 to 25 years of short-term memory works best. To 30 years in memory for faces reaches its peak. After 35 years of all kinds of memory reduce their functional activity, however, the vacated space is emotional sphere.
According to scientists, people accumulate information until nearly the end of life. Reading and learning at any age is an important and necessary process that allows you to keep the brain active.
