Drawing is better than writing for memory retention -- ScienceDaily
"Older adults who take up drawing could enhance their memory, according to a new study.
"Researchers from the University of Waterloo found that even if people weren't good at it, drawing, as a method to help retain new information, was better than re-writing notes, visualization exercises or passively looking at images.

"'We found that drawing enhanced memory in older adults more than other known study techniques,' said Melissa Meade, PhD candidate in cognitive neuroscience at Waterloo. 'We're really encouraged by these results and are looking into ways that it can be used to help people with dementia, who experience rapid declines in memory and language function.'"

ACAR Laboratory | Systems Biology of Single-Cell Aging
> Using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model organism, we are interested in understanding and controlling aging and replicative lifespan at the single-cell level. We apply quantitative systems biology methods and a high-throughput microfluidic platform to the study of cellular aging. Our immediate and long-term goals are to: (i) uncover deterministic and stochastic factors affecting replicative lifespan and survival distributions, (ii) elucidate how gene expression levels and genetic noise are altered by the aging process, (iii) identify the components of the master regulatory network governing aging, (iv) characterize the connectivity among the network components including feedback loops, (v) discover chemical compounds that are able to modulate basic aging process and extend lifespan.

Older people can come to believe their own lies
Older people can come to believe their own lies - New EEG research shows that within an hour of telling a falsehood, seniors may think it's the truth. Findings suggest that telling a falsehood scrambles older people’s memory so they have a harder time recalling what really happened.
