According to a recent study, certain areas in the human brain lose cohesion as a person ages. It is said that these areas are the ones known for working in synchronization for activities related to memory and smaller tasks, and they tend to lose their potential as a person starts growing old.
The research was conducted by Princeton University in New Jersey, and as per the studies, whenever a human mind is resting or doing tasks related to memory or directions, etc., the aforementioned areas of the brain work as synchronous groups and their numbers while doing these activities always remain consistent. However, the catch is that these numbers begin to vary radically among different individuals, depending upon one factor that is primary among others, and that’s their age.
It was then said that in people who are quite young, the groups are very large but less in number and hence the cohesion of the brain in all tasks are far more consistent, compared to the older people in whom the synchronized groups are many in number but are smaller in size, which means their brain’s cohesion abilities are inconsistent compared to the first age group.
The other factors on which this cohesion difference depends are health, behavior, as well as diseases that can often cause many physical and mental impacts on different individuals.
Studying the brains of different human beings is always a complicated task and hence, scientists prefer to base their research and analysis on a list of healthy human brains, and then compare their results with experimental analysis of other participants, which in this case is the cohesion capacity of the human brain with growing age.
