Superagers & Brain Health

“Superagers” are individuals over 80 with astonishing memory abilities rivaling those decades younger. While much aging research centers on cognitive decline, studying superagers provides crucial insights into preserving brain health. Emily Rogalski’s pioneering work spurred recent findings that superagers exhibit less brain atrophy and greater volume in memory-related regions compared to typical older adults. Surprisingly, lifestyle factors like diet and sleep seemed consistent across superagers and controls, suggesting potential genetic underpinnings. Examining exceptional cases like superagers expands our understanding of the cognitive aging spectrum.
