Alzheimer’s Study Focused on Cognitively Superior Brains

Sometimes it not only just feels good to focus on the positive - it can be good science. Emily Rogalski, an assistant professor in cognitive neurology at Northwestern University Chicago, led a study about cognitively remarkable elders that researchers call SuperAgers. The focus of the study was to find out why some elders at 80 have brains as sharp as people decades younger.

In reference to the lifestyle similarities of people eligible for the study, Rogalsli said that,  ''The SuperAgers really are a diverse group; not all were wealthy, some exercised five times a week, while others only ran if they were chased.” There were no significant educational differences between the SuperAgers and the control group.
