Start Young and Delay Dementia

Posted: Monday, July 20, 2009

We have known for some time that adults who regularly challenge their brains succumb to dementia less often and at older ages than seniors who are intellectually lazy.

The brain can grow new neural connections and strengthen weak ones at ANY age - if exercised.

There is also a link between educational level and dementia which suggests that mental activity in young adulthood helps delay dementia later.

Psychologists at the University of Toronto found that older subjects who had the most education during their youth did the best on memory tests.

So if you want to forestall dementia in your golden years, get as much formal education as you can when you are young. Of course if you're already past that stage, then you should start challenging yourself right now.
