Researchers discover a new secret while looking at brain scans

Posted: Updated:

You can lie about your age, but a brain scan will almost always set the record straight. That's according to a new study out of the University of California San Diego. Researchers played the guess your age game with more than 800 people while looking at more than two hundred markers of age on a brain scan. Using that, researchers came up with an accurate age prediction ninety-two percent of the time. But it's not just a game. Scientists say this can be useful in tracking development and finding abnormalities.
