A college-educated person is less likely to suffer from age-related memory loss than someone with less education, a report from Canada suggests.

The findings from the University of Toronto’s Rotman Research Institute show that people with more education tend to use the more active frontal lobes of the brain associated with problem-solving, memory, and judgment. Co-author Cheryl Grady said more education while the brain is still developing, before the age of 30, causes more connections between brain regions to form.
