Super Agers
In this July 30, 2013 photo, 92-year-old Edith Stern holds a photo of her father in her studio apartment at a retirement home in Chicago. Stern who is originally from Czechoslovakia lost her parents and her husband in the Holocaust. Stern is a “super ager,” participating in a Northwestern University study of people in their 80s and 90s with astounding memories. So far the research has found scientific evidence that brains in this elite group resemble those of people decades younger. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
