I wonder if that is one of the main reasons why most top chess players are under 45 (other than things like deteriorating physical endurance, burnout, family considerations, etc.). Since success at chess depends heavily on long-term memory, I have wondered for awhile now why there is such a drop-off among the top players after a certain age.
