“The earlier you take steps to keep your brain strong, the longer you’ll delay any signs of decline….  One of the best ways to learn and keep your mind sharp is with financial literacy….  When we learn and use financial education, we use different parts of our brains. Learning the material uses regions in the temporal parietal area…. What they found was that the more financially literate a person, the stronger the connections.
