In an online poll in Britain, 11 percent of respondents said they had started to notice their memory suffering in their 40s. Six percent had noticed it in their 30s.

The survey also revealed that the over-50s are plagued by the fear of memory loss and many have frequent and embarrassing memory lapses, the Daily Mail reported Friday.

Examples included leaving the house without putting on socks, forgetting how to spell common words like "hour" and even struggling to remember their own name.

According to the research, the 92 percent of over-50s do try to keep their minds and memory active. The survey was commissioned by adult learning website Love to Learn.
