Help! My body is 28½ years older than my brain!

brain age

My mother-in-law sent me the link to this site that purports to measure your “brain age” for comparison with your chronological age.

The assertion is that if you get a brain age score significantly lower than your chronological age, you’re at less risk of developing dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease.

Both of my parents had rather iffy cognitive skills at the end of their lives, so it’s something I think about.

According to the test, I have the brain of a 37-year-old, which is pretty good for a guy about to turn 66.

Click on the image, take the test, and let me know how you did.
