Original Broadcast: May 15   

watch online        

In May, Health Matters is talking grey matter, with information that might just have you scratching your head. Did you know the brain has already reached 90 percent of its full size by the time a person is six? Or that at around age 22 the brain reaches its peak power, which lasts about five years? Or that the brains of older people only appear to slow down?  It just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in them. It's Brain Basics and Beyond, on Health Matters Television for Life.
