After age 30 our body starts going through different changes and some of them can be surprising for us. For example, despite the fact that we are more experienced our brain actually gets smaller. If you noticed that you sweat less after 30, this is also a part of the aging process.
We at Zgrnews got curious about what experts say about changes in our brain and body after 30 and would like to share it with you.
1. Your brain gets smaller.
No, your brain doesn’t grow with age. The opposite thing actually happens. When you get older, certain parts of the brain shrink. It loses approximately 50,000 neurons per day after age 30. But there is no reason to panic because our brain knows how to adapt.
It has also been found that the volume of the brain declines with age at a rate of around 5% per decade after age 40. These things affect memory, especially episodic memory.
