Cognitive Reserve Theory Boosted
A new research study of 1157 people has found that active brains are better able to resist cognitive decline. On the other hand, once dementias are noticed the rate of decline may increase for those who have been able to stave off the earliest indicators of the disease. What is hypothesized according to experts like Drs. Peterson and DeKosky is that cognitive reserve from brain-training activities plays a role in lengthening the period of cognitive effectiveness.
