The benefits of good education and lifelong learning extend into old age. Current findings from the Longitudinal Healthy Aging Brain (LHAB) Database, a longitudinal study led by Prof. Dr. Lutz Jäncke and Dr. Susan Mérillat (both URPP DynAge), show that certain degenerative processes over time are reduced in the brains of those with a university education. Their brains are better able to compensate age-related cognitive and neural limitations. You can learn about these exciting findings here.
