Three Games that May Help Boost Your Memory
Researchers have discovered that as people get older, they lose five percent of the nerve cells in their hippocampus (the area of the brain responsible for building memory) every decade. The good news is, some research suggests that memory loss in adults can be mitigated by regularly participating in certain activities, like brain games.
Here are some brain games you can play right in your apartment in Mount Dora, Florida. These games have been shown to help participants of all ages boost their brain power:
• Sudoku – This is a game of logic, problem solving, and spotting patterns, which some experts believe may help to stimulate cognitive abilities.
• Jigsaw puzzles – A number of professionals believe that puzzles can help create new connections in the brain, resulting in improved thinking and mental speed. Choosing a challenging puzzle may also boost mental stamina.
• Lumosity – This is an online brain training program developed by neuroscientists. You can choose the free option, which will allow you to play a certain set of games each day, or pay for membership to access more games (the site includes more than 40 games in total), get personalized training, and keep track of your performance.
A great thing about these brain games is that they not only help to improve brain function, but also are fun to partake in, so you’ll enjoy yourself while boosting your brain power.
