Scans Show Female Brains Remain Youthful As Male Brains Wind Down
As our brain ages, key functions and processes can slow down.
While it was once thought to impact both men and women at the same exact rate, recent research finds that women have more youthful brains than their male counterparts, especially when it comes to their metabolism. In fact, there was a huge difference between a woman’s brain age and their chronological age, with their brain appearing about four years younger, on average. While the scientific reason behind this occurrence is still being researched today, it is a huge biological advantage for women. To read more about this research, head over to NPR.
