 Extract from Oats may Help Boost Memory
Researchers at the University of South Australia  (USA) Nutritional Physiology Research Centre are investigating if an extract from oats can help boost memory.

Peter Howe, USA research professor, said that they were keen to test if memory power in older adults could be boosted by oats.

"With the proportion of ageing population set to increase over the next several decades, mental disability through age-related cognitive decline looms as a major public health problem with enormous economic and social impact," he said. "We're embarking on a study to look more closely at how an extract of wild green oats can potentially improve cognitive performance in older adults, especially when under duress."

He added that wild oats contain nutrients, which could help improve blood flow through the brain and thus boost attention span.
