How to help your aging brain - it's not using games!
These 'brain training' games are being aggressively and attractively marketed even though research does not support their effectiveness. I suspect that they are attractive to companies selling them as they are marketable and a good money spinner, whereas we like to buy them because they seem like a fun and easy way to help ourselves. In fact, the research clearly shows that we really don't need to buy anything at all in order to 'train' our brains and prepare ourselves for good cognitive health as we age. It confirms, rather, that cognitively healthy people eat and sleep well, exercise daily, keep socially engaged and are active and learn new things. This is a lifestyle not a product!
