Mental Exercise to Decrease Dementia

For the first time, aging research specialists have identified a form of mental exercise that can reduce the risk of dementia. The cognitive training, called speed of processing, includes 10 one-hour training sessions over six weeks, then up to eight additional “booster” sessions. The training was found to have benefits up to 10 years after it was completed. The proportion of participants who underwent the training and later developed dementia was significantly smaller than among those who received no cognitive training, according to the researchers from Indiana University, the University of South Florida, and Pennsylvania State University.
