Everyone’s brain has biological mess – amyloid-beta plaques and tau-protein tangles. Even those of us with fully functioning brains. Our cells are constantly replacing and repairing themselves, our brain cells included. Studies have shown that people with signs of dementia often have brains full of plaque. But this brain mess, is also found in people with normal functioning brains also. At this time, we do not know the causes of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. When we push ourselves to learn new things new brain pathways develop.

- 3You are never to old to stop learning.
