Does Your Brain Need Exercise?

Apparently it does according to Neuroscientists who believe there is a lot that can be done and the right mental workouts can significantly improve our basic cognitive functions.    Cognitive psychologists tell us that as we hit middle age we start to notice that our memory and mental clarity is not what it used to be.  Have you ever had a “Senior Moment”?  I have,  and as I read in the news today about Pat Summitt’s (women’s basketball coach at Tennessee) announcement that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia at 59 I decided to Google “Brain Training” to see what I’d find.  I was amazed to find page after page of articles relating to brain training exercises, brain training software, brain games, brain training online, brain training companies, etc.It appears that this is a popular topic.One company says it has over 14 million users. Online sites where people can actually to the exercises is the most popular.

While much of the material is advertising I still found the topic interesting to the point that I will be pursuing it further.  If you’ve ever had a “Senior Moment” you might want to Google “Brain Training” and check it out.
