Brains of older people

Post by retired2 on Mon Nov 17, 2014 1:25 pm



This takes a load off my mind!!

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not
decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because
they have more information stored in their brains, scientists believe. Much
like a computer struggles as the hard drive becomes more full, so humans
also take longer to access information, it has been suggested.

Researchers say this slowing down is not the same as cognitive decline. The
human brain works slower in old age, said Dr. Michael Ramscar, but only
because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older
people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more, but just may
not be able to access the information. Also, older people often go to
another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there
wondering what they came for. It is NOT a memory problem, it is nature's
way of making older people do more exercise.


SO THERE!!

loss I drink white wine. For low blood pressure I drink Red Wine.
In
the case of high blood pressure I drink scotch. And when I have a
cold I drink Schnapps.

A guy walks into a bar in Alabama and orders a white wine.
All the hillbillies sitting around the bar look up from their
beer and whiskey, expecting to see some pitiful Yankee from the north.


The bartender says, "You ain't from around here, are ya?"

The guy says, "No, I'm from Canada ."

The bartender says, "What do you do in Canada ?"

The guy says, "I'm a taxidermist."

The bartender says, "A taxidermist? What in the hell is a taxidermist? Do you drive a taxi?"

"No," says the Canadian, "I don't drive a taxi, I mount animals."


The bartender grins and hollers, "It's okay boys. He's one of us."
