People are getting smarter after 50 years

The functions of the human brain reach the peak of their activity much later than by the age of twenty, and the aging process in certain areas of mental activity practically does not affect this ability in any way

American experts managed to prove that the human brain is continuously developing and reaches a peak of its activity by 50 years.
Previously, it was assumed that the peak of brain activity falls within the age range of 20 to 25 years, but scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology denied this opinion. According to scientists, all areas of the brain are not able to simultaneously maintain a high level of mental activity - at a certain age, some of them work better, others - worse. For example, the ability to perfectly capture the emotional state of other people comes to a person only to 40-50 years, and some successfully develop their mental abilities in 70 years.
To reach such conclusions, experts conducted a multi-year study, which involved three million volunteers of different ages. Scientists appreciated their creative abilities, offering to pass certain tests, the implementation of which takes only a few minutes. As it turned out, as a result, the functions of the human brain reach the peak of their activity much later than by the age of twenty, and the aging process in certain areas of mental activity practically does not affect this ability in any way.
