This news will no doubt come as a relief to readers of the Washington Post.
From the Washington Post, "Excessive brain activity linked to a shorter life":
One key to a longer life could be a quieter brain without too much neural activity, according to a new study that examined postmortem brain tissue from extremely long-lived people for clues about what made them different from people who died in their 60s and 70s.They go on to report no actual link between "excessive brain activity" and a shorter life has been demonstrated in humans:
Researchers at Harvard Medical School analyzed brain tissue donated to human brain banks by people ranging in age from their 60s and 70s to centenarians who lived to be 100 or older. They found people who died before their mid-80s had lower levels in their brains of a protein called REST that tamps down genes involved in sparking brain activity, compared to the very oldest people. REST had already been shown to be protective against Alzheimer¡¯s disease. But they weren¡¯t sure whether REST somehow protected people from death or was just a sign of further aging.TIME Magazine was similarly excited by the news:
Scientists need to roll out those brain-disabling magnets they've talked so much about ASAP so we can all live forever!
