Inability to handle stress affects memory, says study

Studies show that young adults who are aggressive will suffer from memory-related problems later in life. Scientists took a group of 3,126 individuals at the age of 25 and asked them questions to understand their ability to cope with stress. The questions were aimed at their personality and the ability to remember things. Experts measured the same again in the participants after 25 years.

They found that those who had an aggressive attitude towards others scored lowest in the exercises. This does not show a direct relationship between the ability to handle stress and declining memory with age. However, it shows the importance of the need to increase positive talk among young people.
