The study explores the lifestyle factors that play a major role in reducing the risk of dementia and examines the benefits of building a “cognitive reserve”, which means strengthening the brain’s networks so it can continue to function in later life despite damage.

Three postures to loosen, lengthen and let go!

On 22, Nov 2016 | In Yoga & Mindfulness | By Henrietta Greene

Sitting at a desk all day can wreak havoc on the body. The human skeleton, with its 206 bones, and 112 joints that facilitate movement of this structure, is literally designed to move. However finding the time, and perhaps more crucially, the energy to move more can be difficult. Start off slowly, aiming to add 10-15 minutes of extra movement into your day, throughout the week and weekend, and you may find that your energy levels start to improve. Increase the duration of your activity as you start to feel the benefit of using your body how it’s been designed to be used!!

Study: Hearing gets more tiring for the brain as we age

On 28, Oct 2016 | In Professional News | By Rosie Williams

With support from Sonova, a recent and globally unique study by the University of Zurich has been looking at the consequences of age-related hearing loss in the brain. The study has allowed neuropsychologists to visually map and measure the consequences of age-related hearing loss in the brain.

The results show that although the ageing brain requires intensive training in order to regain a better understanding of speech when using hearing instruments, an ageing brain can still relearn how to process speech. This supports the belief that hearing does not just take place in the ear, but also as a cognitive process in the brain.

Wearing Hearing Aids Reduces Risk of Cognitive Decline Associated with Hearing Loss*

Study Shows That Hearing Aids Reduce Risk of Cognitive Decline

Validates Benefits of Hearing Technologies Designed to Minimize Cognitive Load

“Self-Reported Hearing Loss: Hearing Aids and Cognitive Decline in Elderly Adults: A 25-year Study,” just published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society, compared the trajectory of cognitive decline among older adults who were using hearing aids and those who were not. The study found no difference in the rate of cognitive decline between the control group of people with no reported hearing loss and people with hearing loss who used hearing aids. By contrast, untreated hearing loss was significantly associated lower baseline scores on the Mini-Mental State Examination, a well-established test of cognitive function, during the 25-year follow-up period, independent of age, sex and education.

Brain Spice: Turmeric

On 11, Aug 2015 | No Comments | In Food for Brains | By Jerusha Shulberg

Turmeric is a member of the ginger family and can be used whole but is most commonly sold as a ground spice which resembles a fine mustard powder.

This antioxidant and powerful anti-inflammatory is used regularly to season food in India where researchers found that the risk of developing Alzheimer’s is 25 percent lower than in the U.S. In lab studies, mice that were fed curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) developed fewer amyloid plaques, associated with Alzheimer’s, than rats that weren’t.

More recent research published in Stem Cell Research and Therapy suggests it may boost your brain proliferation or its power to repair itself!

How to use turmeric in your diet?
