New Canadian Study Shows That Your Brain Starts Deteriorating Much Earlier Than You Previously Thought! Super Sad Science Deets HERE!

scientists say brain slows at 24 cognitive decline simon fraser university canada

Well, at least this explains 24-year-old musician Chris Brown's recent behavior!

A team of Canadian researchers published a disturbing new neurological study that will kind of make you want to cry!

According to Canadian scientists at Canada's Simon Fraser University, the human brain takes its first steps down the long road to mushy-mush quicker than we thought!

The Canadians hypothesize that cognitive decline, i.e. the slowing down of our brains, begins as early as 24!!!!

Oh noes! Not our brains! Anything but our brains!

The Canadian study, which timed and tracked various types of decision-making amongst 3,300 mostly Canadian volunteers, showed that brain functionality slows as age increases. In fact, it starts slowing as early as 24 years of age!

This isn't the first study to show an inverse relationship between age and cognitive ability, obvs, but it's seemingly the first to point toward signs of decline quite so early!

Ugh!! We assumed our glorious grey matter was insulated from decay for a few more decades! Thanks, Canada!

Maybe this phenomena is limited only to Canadian brains, though — have they considered that? Perhaps it's the region's bitter cold driving this early descent into feeble-mindedness! Or maybe it's all the gosh-darned politeness!

Either way, not all the of news was totally depressing! Canadian scientists assure us that the wisdom gained from life experiences can often times make up for the decline in brain functionality!

So there's that. We guess.

    My brain started to deteriorate when I was 16. That's when I started going on your site.

    So Justin Beaver only have 4 years to go … OMG … Can't even think how he is going to be after 24 y/o LOL

    Justin, as your brain cells turn to mush, rumour has it that the plane ride from the United States to Canada could be very long. Could take months to reach your destination.

    Not sure I believe them. In my 60's and still doing very well. In fact going on vacation to Mexico in 2.5 weeks and booked it all myself.

    I read somewhere that the average age of an inventor is 31. That means the largest chunk of common inventors are actually "immature people" under 30. But.. if your IQ is 160… you can probably afford a little mental deterioration and have room to spare. A person with an IQ of 84….well… every neuron firing is precious.

    Makes sense in the way that once something fully develops or matures, it begins a decline process. The brain actually doesn't fully develop until 24-25, per other scientific research. So it makes sense that research would also show that the decline begins at this time as well. That's just nature. You don't stay suspended in time at any point in your life. But I think as long as you exercise your brain (I.E. Luminosity, puzzles, reading) you can retain a younger brain for many years. Many older people accomplish wonderful things.
