“Young in the Head”

Man reading Korte's book

Prof. Dr. Martin Korte: “Jung im Kopf - Erstaunliche Einsichten der Gehirnforschung in das Älterwerden“ (“Young in the Head - Amazing Insights from Brain Research into Aging”). Based on the latest research, Korte describes the aging processes of the brain. He dispels the myth that thinking and memory skills are the first to go in old age, and shows how we can counter the aging process.

Prof. Dr. Martin Korte: “Jung im Kopf - Erstaunliche Einsichten der Gehirnforschung in das Älterwerden“ (“Young in the Head - Amazing Insights from Brain Research into Aging”). Based on the latest research, Korte describes the aging processes of the brain. He dispels the myth that thinking and memory skills are the first to go in old age, and shows how we can counter the aging process. From the Intro: “We are actually aging constantly, from the day we are born. Because aging means development. We get bigger, stronger, smarter. And so our brain is subject to massive remodeling after birth: It teaches us how to walk, talk and think. Again during puberty a re-organization process takes place. This process helps us to plan and act wisely, to get a grip on our impulsiveness and later to apply all that we have carefully learned, so that we are able to master the challenges of life - both personally and professionally. We find it unremarkable that the brain has such an enormous capacity to adapt over a lifetime, as long as this happens without any noticeable damage, i.e. up to about the age of 50. Some people do complain as early as on the 40th birthday, but perhaps they are just being coy. No later than the 50th birthday most of us are complaining about gray or thinning hair, age-related vision problems, loose teeth, wrinkles, a flabby tummy, weak connective tissue, aching joints and, especially, failing memory. A multi-billion dollar anti-aging industry is striving to minimize the signs of the times. Sometimes that works quite well, but often not. Complaining about getting older is one of the most irrational excesses of our society’s obsession with youth. Shouldn’t we just be happy to get older, after leaving behind us the turbulent teenage years, entering a career path or starting a family?”
