My brain hasn't peaked, yet!

Another article in Time reports that our brain power does not peak at 40, as previously thought--yeah! I suppose I should have investigated this before returning to grad school, but I'm relieved to know that my old brain cells are capable of learning new things, yet.

I should refer this article to my professors so they can understand why my short-term memory is not what it used to be, hence my not-as-great performance on tests. But, the good news is that in my somewhat advanced age, I am better able to handle ambiguity, "manage information and parse meanings" that I could not at a younger age, which explains my much better performance on papers and presentations!
