A recent study has shown that age-related memory loss can be restored to rival that of a younger person. Only five 20-minute stimulation sessions were all that was need to bring about the amazing reversal.
The research from Northwestern University concentrated on trying to improve 'age related memory loss, a common kind of cognitive decline associated with normal ageing'.
The scientists studied 16 adults aged between 64 and 80 on different memory tasks. Older participants originally were only correct around 40% of the time but this increased to 55%, around the same as the younger group members.
Joel Voss, one of the scientists involved stated:
'Older people's memory got better up to the level that we could no longer tell them apart from younger people...They got substantially better.'
The research will continue to see if other parts of the brain can be stimulated for better results and will this work with Alzheimer's patients?
