Mentally women are older tend to be 3 years ago than men
On average, men tend to get older on average three years before women. While adults are three years later. This claim is based on the difference in the metabolism in the brain that researchers from the University of Washington have done. Manu Goyal, an assistant professor of Indian origin and a professor in the University, who is involved in research, said that the brain works on the basis of sugar. But with aging, changes in the way the sugar is used in the brain.
In a research published in the Journal of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, he wrote that a part of the sugar is involved in the process of ‘aerobic glycolysis’ (breakdown of sugar in the presence of oxygen). This process is responsible for the development and nutrition of the brain. Goyal said this research has been done on 121 women and 84 men of 20 to 84 years of age. We used to scan their PET for measuring the flow of glucose and oxygen in the brain’s brain. After this, the data of men’s age and brain activity is inserted in a machine to detect relationships between age and brain functions.
Researchers inserted data of women’s brain metabolism (metabolic processes) and calculated the age of women’s brain by data. According to the results, the age of their brains was 3.8 years old from the actual age of women. While men’s brains were 2.4 years older than their actual age.
Goyal said that it is not that men’s mind develops rapidly. In fact, men are adults by three years of menstruation. But after that the difference grows and continues for life.
So why is it still in old age have sharp memory?
The researcher said, “Probably this is the reason that despite the age of women, women’s ability to understand memory and thinking is more than men. But we are doing a little more research to confirm this.According to the University of Edinburgh research published in 2017, the size of men’s brain is more than women. This result was done by researchers on the basis of MRI scales of 2750 women and 2466 males in 68 areas.
