This Old Brain just ain't what she used to be . . .

From Bill Crider's blog today: comes a link from the New York Times: Older Brain may be a Wiser Brain.

I know I have an aging brain, facts, figures, place names and people names don't immediately jump to my lips. I've been jokingly calling it "middle aged memory" as I am not willing to call myself "old" yet. Since several of my ancestors had issues with mental functioning in their later years, I worry about Alzheimers.

So this article offers encouragement to those of us who fear our brains aren't working as well as they used to.
