 Computerized Brain Games may Not Prevent Dementia

Computerized brain games that are said to help boost intelligence and prevent dementia may not actually do so, according to Loyola University Medical Center neurologist Xabier Beristain.

Beristain said, "Brain-training games require the user to perform certain tasks on a computer and they may make the user more skilled at narrow tasks, but there's little evidence they make the user smarter overall or less likely to experience cognitive decline."

He recommended regular exercise with a healthy diet comprising of plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats and antioxidants as an important part of maintaining mental health and memory.
