Losing Isnít So Bad As You Grow Older Stephen Fung May 3, 2007 Extras A recent study from scientists at Stanford University, California, USA, reveals that younger people are more afraid of losing than the older generations. Could this simply confirm that wisdom of age is a reality? In any case, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and self-reported tests led to the conclusion that seniors donít seem to mind losing, regardless of the game Ė as long as itís not strip poker, letís hope! Losing at the races or bingo may not be such a problem for older people, since those over 65 are less upset by loss than twenty-somethings. But they are just as glad of a win, new brain scans suggest. Source: New Scientist Share This With The World!
