Age Vulnerable Memory
As the brain ages and deteriorates, there are certain functions that are affected more than others. In particular, processing speed, short-term memory, semantic memory, attention to details, and the ability to multitask are more vulnerable to natural age related decline.
Fortunately, there are certain brain functions that are not affected much by age. These are attention, language, procedural memory, and creativity. In addition, wisdom naturally improves with age. These unaffected skills often compensate for the functions that deteriorate.
