Why does time seem to pass quicker as we age?

Staff writer

In the course of a publication published in the European Review journal, a scientist revealed that the evolution of our perception of the passage of time is linked to a slowing down of the processes in which the brain processes images.

This reflection of cerebral ageing is observable directly within our brains.

Over the course of their maturation, our networks of nerves and neurones grow and become more complex, thus making the path traveled by the electrical signals that circulate there more sinuous.
