We are all now connected by the Internet, like neurons in a giant brain.

University College London researchers found a 3.6% decline in mental reasoning in women and men aged 45-49.

 

They assessed the memory, vocabulary and comprehension skills of 7,000 men and women aged 45 to 70 over 10 years.

 

The Alzheimer's Society said research was needed into how changes in the brain could help dementia diagnoses.

 

Previous research had suggested that cognitive decline does not begin much before the age of 60.

 

But the results of this study show that it could in fact begin in middle age.

 

This is important, the researchers say, because dementia treatments are more likely to work at the time when individuals start to experience mental impairment.

 

The UCL researchers tested the cognitive functions of 5,198 men and 2,192 women aged 45 to 70, who were all UK civil servants, from 1997 to 2007.

 

Individuals were tested for memory, vocabulary and aural and visual comprehension skills.

 

Differences in education level were taken into account.

呀Hamilton_Ham大哥在方潤先生個site, 也留過流暢無阻 強穩筆力 內容深刻之宣言: "I want to say that the book of Mr Fong is not bad totally, but in my eyes I raelly think it is not good enough. And I guess the reason other people attack Mr Fong and his book because they have a high standard and Mr Fong and his book cannot fulfill it. I myself have read twice time the book in bookstore but I won't buy it because I don't think the book is good at all. It is related to the author, and we cannot reguest and expect more. I know that the talent and knowledge of the author is up to this standard, couldn't be higher. I know that when people see my words here will think I am attacking Mr Fong but I have to say that I am not. I have faith that Mr Fong has tried his best in writing his prose and books. He couldn't done better. If you don't agree with me you just pay time to prove it. I dare to say that I am right.( Don't have to be angry or worry, Mr Fong and his followers, time will prove, and let time prove it, ok?)" 佢看不起新春秋 唔肯加入 直頭係新真秋一大損失 我read twice time the message 後 見新春秋couldn't be higher, 我都喊埋出來添囉! Don't have to be angry or worry. If you don't agree with me you just pay time to prove it. I dare to say that I am right, time will prove, and let time prove it, ok? ok? Reply

The "Tea Party" should be tried for treason and criminal negligence. The damage they have done to this country is horrendous and unebeaptaclc. What goes around comes around. They got voted in, they can be voted out. Especially after what they've done. Traitors! Reply
