Cognitive Training Continues to Boost Your Brain Power Year After Year

Once again, research proves that invest­ing in your brain pays big (and long-last­ing) div­i­dends.

As report­ed in the Jour­nal of the Amer­i­can Geri­atric Soci­ety,  indi­vid­u­als who received a brief course of cog­ni­tive train­ing con­tin­ued to enjoy the ben­e­fits ten years lat­er.

The researchers test­ed three dif­fer­ent types of cog­ni­tive train­ing.  One helped to boost your rea­son­ing capa­bil­i­ties.  Anoth­er was designed to enhance mem­o­ry.  And a third tried to increase the speed with which you could process incom­ing data.

The details var­ied among the three dif­fer­ent inter­ven­tions, but all three had a pos­i­tive effect which could still be dis­cerned ten years after the ini­tial train­ing peri­od.

The bot­tom line: invest in the health of your brain now.  It will pay div­i­dends down the road.
