Elderly people are often considered unable or unwilling to learn novel things or to acquire new skills. The saying You can't teach an old dog new tricks has many equivalents in other languages. However, we know from many findings in basic research and from common experience (seniors can even learn to juggle, to play the piano or to speak Chinese) that this widespread assumption is simply wrong.
