Cognitive Training


By JOE HARDY, Ph.D.
A recent report funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that only
one factor demonstrates a HIGH level of evidence for delaying or preventing cognitive decline -- cognitive training.

Of course, that's not to say you shouldn't take care of yourself in other ways. Other factors, for example physical activity and a diet rich in vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids, were associated with a decreased risk of cognitive decline. These things are likely good for your brain, but the authors did not find enough evidence to say so definitively.


He keeps me functioning
each and every day.
Without Him, I will be
nothing.
But, with Christ,
HE strengthens me.
(Phil 4:13)
