Memory loss is something that we all experience as we grow older. But a recent study found a simple yet fun way to improve cognitive skills in seniors. John Anderer of StudyFinds writes about this interesting research:
For this study, researchers asked an experimental group of adults aged 58-86 to simultaneously take three to five classes for a total of five months. This averaged out to about 15 hours per week of learning for each participant. Some of the classes included Spanish, how to use an iPad, music composition, painting, and photography. There was also a control group included that did not take any classes.
Apparently, the experimental group improved their memory so much that their cognitive abilities were comparable to middle-aged people! Want to find out more about this study? Read the full article to find out.
