Summary:
German and Canadian scientists have built a three dimensional map of the human brain to help in the development of new treatments for neurological disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The "human brain map" shows the organ in unprecedented detail, allowing neuro-researchers to examine brain function and pathways on a molecular level. Rob Muir reports.

Exercise Keeps Older Brains in Shape

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 4, 2013) — A healthy brain just keeps getting better with age. That is the surprising discovery of Ernst Poeppel, a brain researcher in Munich. Vocabulary, verbal memory and spacial and associative reasoning reach peak performance between the ages of 40 and 56. Ernst Poeppel says young and old brains show very little difference. So there's no reason they can't function optimally a whole life long - provided they're kept in shape like muscles. They can even grow new brain cells. The neuro-networks and transmitters, on the other hand, can get a bit rusty with age.
