I used to have to deal with a development group manager who firmly believed that "you should stop trying to learn anything new at age 40."
I had two words to answer him with: "Bovine Scatology!."
I've never stopped learning. It may be harder to do at times and I'm in my mid fifties. Since I turned forty the stuff I've learned to do from a standing start include (but are not limited to)
Point is the time to stop learning stuff is when you get that underground and really small apartment with no exits.
I don't plan on moving into that apartment yet, so I don't plan on stopping learning. Even stuff that I've already learned there is still a learning process as you hone your knowledge to a finer point and you get better at it.
As for forgetting syntax... memory is the second thing that fails as you get older...
