    If you are over 45 years of age, do you notice a decline in your brain function?

    According to the BBC "the brain's ability to function can start to deteriorate as early as 45, suggests a study in the British Medical Journal." Do you agree

    no ... but I take the sort of supplements that will hopefully prolong as well as enhance brain function!

    Yes, maam, I certainly have. But I should mention that it's an inherited trait - both parents' memories are not in the greatest shape. We don't have any serious conditions in the family history, but details aren't so easy to recall anymore!

    No...........there is no reason at all for your brain to reduce in function.  There are numerous books and DVD's on how the brain regenerates cells and can also re generate channels therefore you do not need to get dementia or any of the other brain diseases.  I have done a lot of research on the brain from most of my llife.   If you look at George Burns, Bob Hope, Betty White, The Queen of England, Nelson Mandela they are not showing any signs of brain degeneration.   The more active you keep your brain and the more new things you learn the better for you.

    No, I can't say I have.  The rest of my body seemed to start falling apart around that time but not my mind.  Then again, I have a job that is mentally stimulating, I love working puzzles and brain teasers, I read quite a bit and I write creatively, mainly poetry.  All of these things have been shown to promote brain function.

    It does, my daughter is in a PhD.D program for neuroscience and degenerative issues, and I do believe because I feel it myself. It is hard to keep the brain active once routines are settle in.

    No, I haven't personally. But as I'm over 45, maybe I wouldn't? I imagine one needs a fully functioning brain in order to spot even minor degenerative function.... Any information on the age of the researchers? smile
