Superagers’ Brains Look Decades Younger, Study
Scientists all over the world are trying to reveal the secrets of superagers, people identified in studies as having exceptionally sharp memories in their 80s and 90s. A new research from Massachusetts General Hospital shows that key brain region in mentally sharp superagers are similar to those in people who are much younger.
The study included 17 superagers between the ages of 60 and 80. They scored on memory tests as adults who were 40 to 50 years younger according to the results of the study.
Study senior co-author Alexandra Touroutoglou, as instructor in neurology, said: “Our study is exciting because we focused on people around or just after typical retirement age – mostly in their 60s and 770s – and investigated those who could remember as well as people in their 20s.”
