Men More Forgetful Than Women

Livescience, via Yahoo:

Men are more likely than women to have problems with memory and other thinking skills, symptoms considered to be an early stage of dementia, research suggests.

The new study, to be presented at an annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Chicago this week, expands the field of research on aging and memory into a touchy arena – cognitive differences among men and women.

The recent findings come from a study of nearly 2,000 residents of Olmsted County, Minn., who ranged in age from 70 to 89. Dr. Rosebud Roberts of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and her colleagues followed the participants beginning in the fall of 2004, collecting new data every 12 to 15 months. (article)

I know a lotta people who would agree with the general concept…me included. Chris Rock said something about how men are terrible at affairs, cuz we can’t remember shit and thus can’t keep our stories straight, while a woman will remember every detail and catch us. As for me, it sometimes seems I can recall obscure facts better than I can recall what I did the other day.
