The findings, published in JAMA Neurology, revealed that men's hippocampi may actually shrink faster than women's as they get older. The hippocampus is a small piece of the brain responsible for memory. Around 30, everyone begins to experience slight memory loss here and there, the study authors acknowledged. However, after 40, men deal with this more rapidly than women, causing them to forget more over time. That means when men are seniors, they're more likely to forget about that barbecue in the retirement community than women are.
