that learning becomes more difficult as the brain ages.
Should I dig up some nice medical articles for perusal?

Difficult is not "impossible."

The argument that something the vast majority can use, and

And the "I'm a senior" bit holds absolutely, positively no
water.  You can teach an old dog new tricks if said dog is
willing to learn them.
