A year and a half left...

Well, according to this article here, in about a year and a half I shall wrap into a blanket and start the long crawl to the cemetery.

- reasoning, speed of thought and spatial visualisation all decline in our late 20s.
- In nine out of 12 tests the average age at which the top performance was achieved was 22.
- The first age at which there was any marked decline was at 27 in tests of brain speed, reasoning and visual puzzle-solving ability.
- Things like memory stayed intact until the age of 37, on average
- Abilities based on accumulated knowledge, such as performance on tests of vocabulary or general information, increased until the age of 60.

At least there is still hope to switch into languages, where memory is more important, from analytics (where it's reasoning which is the main brain function) when I get older. :D

Ну что, через полтора годика в простыню и на кладбище? Пишут, что с 27 лет способность ясно мыслить начинает медленно, но верно покидать наши бренные головы. Хорошо хоть начало потери памяти аж еще лет 12 ждать. :D  Не зря я заметила, что мозги уже не так варят, как пару лет назад.  Но я винила недосыпание, а теперь есть повод обосновать научно.  :D
