Amount Of Activity Key To Improving Cognitive Function

Remaining physically and mentally active has long been considered a key to fighting, or at least delaying, cognitive decline. A recent study seems to suggest, however, that the type of activity is less important than the amount of activity.

Mary Ann Moon has the full report for Clinical Psychiatry News. One important aspect of the study to note is that there is a possibility that, rather than proving type of activity is unimportant for seniors in battling cognitive decline, the study simply shows that repeated testing on cognitive function improves an individuals performance on those tests.
