Part of brain stays as active in old age as it was in youth

7 agosto 2014

At least one part of the human brain may be able to process information the same way in older age as it does in the prime of life, according to new research. «Our studies have found that older and younger adults perform in a similar way on a range of visual and non-visual tasks that measure spatial attention,» says one researcher. Spatial attention is critical for many aspects of life, from driving, to walking, to picking up and using objects.
