Start learning something new is never too late, say scientists from University College London. They proved that men in Mature age, better young master the skills, and generally learn much faster.
It is believed that children and teenagers grab information on the fly, but this ability is lost. An experiment involving 105 adults and teenagers 558 disproved this theory.
Volunteers were trained to the same skill within 20 days. As a result, the efficiency of assimilation of nonverbal information in adolescents increased from 60 to 70%. Among Mature individuals this figure was higher. The results of the study suggest that adulthood is not too late to learn new things such as foreign language or are interested in any specialty.
Moreover, scientists are talking about minor roles of innate abilities. So much more zeal and desire to learn.
