Empowered Health News | How Our Brain Changes With Age

www.empowereddoctor.com According to new research from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, as we age the human brain breaks down even in the absence of serious medical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease. This deterioration leads to impaired memory and reasoning, but is still part of the normal aging process. According to researchers, the brain can be divided into major functional regions, each responsible for different processes like memory, sensory analysis, planning, and internal thoughts. Each region is connected by a network of “white matter” nerve fibers, where messages pass through the white matter from one region through another. Though scientists are aware that this white matter network degrades with age, how that decline contributed to the break down of large-scale cognition systems was unclear.
