Men become quarrelsome curmudgeons

The belief that men become quarrelsome curmudgeons when they get old is bogus, says a recent study. Researchers discovered it's the younger generation who look to the future with a jaundiced eye and expect the worst. Meanwhile, most seniors fondly recall the past and often view the world with positive expectations. The study involved two groups, 19 to 31 year olds and 61 and 80 year olds, who were asked to view photographs while brain scans analyzed their reactions. The scientists at the University of Auckland found that the old and the young processed both happy and pessimistic scenes dramatically differently in their minds. The results suggest that elderly folks are more prone to remember joyful moments than their younger counterparts.
