The brain’s neural activity – long implicated in disorders ranging from dementia to epilepsy – also plays a role in human aging and life span, according to research led by scientists in the Blavatnik Institute at Harvard Medical School.
The study, published Oct. 16 in Nature, is based on findings from human brains, mice and worms and suggests that excessive activity in the brain is linked to short life spans, while suppressing such overactivity extends life.
It’s not yet clear whether or how a person’s thoughts affect their longevity, but the findings offer the first evidence that the activity of the nervous system affects human longevity.
