A new study has revealed that people might get old but one part of their brain would still function the same way as it did in the young age.


Dr Joanna Brooks said that older and younger adults perform in a similar way on a range of visual and non-visual tasks that measure spatial attention and both younger (aged 18-38 years) and older (55-95 years) adults had the same responses for spatial attention tasks involving touch, sight or sound.

She further added that the results challenge current models of cognitive ageing because they show that the right side of the brain remains dominant for spatial processing throughout the entire adult lifespan

According to research conducted at the University of Adelaide, certain types of cognitive systems in the right cerebral hemisphere like spatial attention are encapsulated and might be protected from ageing.

Spatial attention plays a critical role in many aspects of life like driving, walking, picking up and using objects.
