WHEN DO WE BEGIN TO LOSE BRAIN CELLS?


The brain reaches its maximum weight at age 20 - about 3 pounds. Over the next 60 years, as billions of nerve cells die within the brain, it loses about 3 ounces. The brain begins to lose cells at a rate of 50,000 per day by the age of 30.

That proves that the size is not the matter!!! A 20 years old kid with a bigger brain doesn't mean that he knows more than me with a smaller brain.
