Hi,
Our brains change significantly over time just like the rest of the body. When young, for a few years the brain makes new connections at the rate of one million per second. Not sure how scientists came to that conclusion. Our brain isn’t fully developed until between age 25-35 more or less. Our speech and language don’t usually change but memory usually does. Seizures (probably not all seizures) and Epilepsy medication usually add to memory problems. Around age 60-70 the brain actually begins to shrink and probably shrinks the most between 70-80. One place this happens fastest is in the frontal lobe which may be why it’s more difficult to learn and make and retain memories as we age.
