Cognitive training helps regain a younger-working brain

Brain function can be extended through life according to researchers at the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas.

Main titles

Brain function improvements were in the form of the brain becoming more efficient after cognitive training.

Increased brain efficiency means that the brain works less hard in order to accomplish tasks.

The tasks in the study included sorting relevant information and generating innovative thinking.

Dr. Michael Motes, senior research scientist at the Center for BrainHealth said,

“Finding a nonpharmacological intervention that can help the aging brain to perform like a younger brain is a welcome finding that potentially advances understanding of ways to enhance brain health and longevity. It is thrilling for me as a cognitive neuroscientist, who has previously studied age-related cognitive decline, to find that cognitive training has the potential to strengthen the aging brain to function more like a younger brain.”
