How much cognitive ability do we lose as we age?

Yesterday, I told you about how we lose 2 g per year of our brain mass and today we look at the functional outcome of aging on brain performance.

Go check out this post on cognitive loss with aging as it relates to brain health to see the interesting graphs.

It appears that while brain mass peaks at around 25 many of our cognitive abilities do not peak until we are in our 50s.
