TITLE:

“Feeling young could mean your brain is ageing more slowly”

 

FINDINGS:

The first study to link subjective age to biological age shows that elderly people who feel younger have fewer signs of brain ageing.

 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN:

It may be true that we are as old as we feel, or at least brain ageing may be linked to our personal thoughts on how young we feel.
