(Ben Bartee – PJ Media) From time immemorial, that adults lose cognitive ability over time has been taken for granted. The conventional wisdom is that loss of mental faculties is a natural consequence of the aging process.
However, recent research published in Aging and Mental Health calls that assumption into question, demonstrating that, in fact, not only can cognitive decline be prevented through lifestyle interventions alone, but it can potentially be reversed through cognitive gains even late in life.
The researchers designed their experiment by subjecting elderly participants to simultaneous training in three new skills over a course of three months and then testing their cognitive performance to compare to the baseline results from tests conducted before the experiment began.
