Dear Radic Stalmach

Use it or lose it.

Recent research has shown that even the brain of a very old human can change about half as fast as the brain of a baby.

So people of any age can learn and change and grow in knowledge, skills and wisdom.

But it's unlikely that this will happen if a person doesn't have life-long practice in learning.

Yours sincerely 

Virginia R. Claire
