How does brain exercise slow down dementia and memory loss?
How does brain activity affect us?
Researches on animals indicate that if the mind stays active, it may:
• Lower the rate of damaged brain cells showing up with Alzheimer’s
• Keep new nerve cells growing
• Make nerve cells to send messages to each other
Keeping your brain active helps you build up loads of reserved brain cells and links between and grow new ones. This could be one clue why scientists presume a connection between Alzheimer’s and a lower level of education. Researchers believe that what strengthens connections between brain cells is the extra mental activity from schooling. However, education and brain exercises are no guaranteed ways of Alzheimer’s prevention. But they can postpone symptoms and make the mind better and healthier.
