Older Brains May Be Better Than Younger Brains In Certain Ways

HealthDay (3/11, Dotinga) reports that research to be published in Psychological Science “raises the prospect that people in their 40s and 50s do a better job of translating emotional signals from other people, while seniors have more overall knowledge.” The study also found that “young adults…think faster and have more short-term memory.” These “findings are based in part on an analysis of the responses of slightly over 48,500 people who took online tests on the websites gameswithwords.org and testmybrain.org.”
