Written by: Bill Sherman on Friday, 16 June 2006, 1:45 AM

According to a recent study in the Journal of Neuroscience, our emotional stability increases increases in a linear progression each decade from our teens through our seventies. As we age, two very interesting things happen:

  • We gain greater ability to control negative emotions (such as anger and fear)
  • We experiece more happiness, our brain rewires itself to allow us to experience more joy

So, we naturally shift from rebellious teenage youtha and trend towards emotionally-stable and generally happy and optimistic seniors.

Something to say?
