Brain games to lower risk of Alzheimer?

Results from a new analysis based on Dr John King’s published study in 2014, the Advanced Cognitive Training for Independent and Vital Elderly (ACTIVE), has shown that playing a brain training game may reduce the risk of developing dementia and prevent cognitive decline by 48 percent. The ACTIVE study is a large 10-year clinical trial that tested the effects of different cognitive training programs on incidences of cognitive decline and dementia in 2,832 healthy older adults. According to Dr King who is the National Institute of Aging’s social research expert in the United States, the recent analysis of the study could be very promising.
