Does memory get worse as you age in everyone?
19 Oct 10
It is well known that children have got more memory because their brain is still not saturated and they are like sponge remembering almost everything. But that doesn't means that everyones memory has to be worse with the age. As adults we are, we simply are more conscious about how hard it might be to study or to retain some information. But we have to options. On one side, we can wait until we get old without doing anything to avoid that our grey cells grow up and leave us without our memory or, on the other side, we can train our brain (keeping on studying, training our brain with exercises and plays, and so on), so we can get old with an excellent memory. It is definitly up to everyone if we want to realize regular maintainance of or brain or not.

dreamangel, for me I think my memory goes something wrong as I grow older. I always a forgetful person. I need to search high and low for my handphone, car key and house keys before I go out. Sometimes, things that I have done but I have totally forget about it. I can't think what will happen to my memory if I get older and become a old lady.

Not really worst, but we will have memory loss once we grow old. But memory loss is worst for those who have the Alzheimer's disease, since in some studies elders who have this often forgot how things are like they cannot recall if they are wearing undies or not, or perhaps forgot their names. But on the normal aging process of human it prevalent that memory decreases gradually as we age.
