Study: Seniors slow down because they have too much to recall story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new study seems to reveal why senior citizens seem to slow down mentally with age.

Scientists believe that older people don't decline mentally with age, but it takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information to sort through in their brains.

The study from the Journal of Topics in Cognitive Science suggests that much like a computer struggles as a hard drive fills up, humans also take longer to access information the longer they've been alive.

Simply put, the more data you have, the longer it takes to process.
