  • You might not be over the hill just yet: Older people are just as likely to have ‘creative breakthroughs’

    Daily Mail - 12/12/2016

    The research comes from Northeastern University in Boston, and suggests that scientists can achieve success at any point in their careers – and achieve it repeatedly – as long as they keep trying.

    Professor Albert-​​​​László Barabasi, who led the study, said: ‘Under­standing the laws and the patterns that govern our careers could sig­nif­i­cantly enhance sci­en­tific output.

    ‘It may also help identify and nur­ture indi­vid­uals who are poised to make big dis­cov­eries and encourage the sci­en­tific com­mu­nity to offer them the resources and oppor­tu­nity to do so.’
