Mental Acuity Varies By Time of Day for Older Adults

If you have a big meeting or mentally challenging task ahead of you and are over 60 years old, you will be your sharpest in the morning according to a recent study published in the online journal Psychology and Aging. The HealthDay News article “Older Adults Sharpest in Morning, Study Finds” discusses the study and stresses that measuring an older person’s mental sharpness in late afternoon may paint a much different picture of their cognitive function than they would have in the morning.
