63 thirties, but it was still not evident in some sixty and seventy year olds.
Matsuzawa concluded from his tests that there is a simple 64 to the contraction normally associated with age-using the head.
The findings show in general 65 that contraction of the brain begins 66 in people in the country than in the towns. Those 67 at risk,says Matsuzawa,are lawyers, followed by university professors and doctors.

IV. Put the following passage into Chinese. (15')
New research from Australia shows that pets are good for your health. The findings of this of this new study suggest that people who have pets are at less risk from heart disease than those who do not.
The new research was carried out over three years and examined 3，000 people. They took tests that measured a variety of different factors known to be involved in heart disease- blood pressure and blood levels. Also， people were asked about their lifestyles. The 800 people who owned pets had lower levels on each of the factors measured than those who did not own pets. The study also showed that it did not matter what kind of pet was owned-a cat was as good as a dog-so the benefits could not be attributed to the exercises involved in walking a dog.
The question is just how pets manage to make their owners more healthy. The obvious answer is that they make their owners feel more relaxed and happier. The Australian scientists who organized this study commented that if a new drug was available that was as effective as simply having a pet， then this drug would undoubtedly be considered a breakthrough in the control of heart disease.
