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.

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.
