AAN: Computers, Exercise Linked to Lower MCI Risk

By

Moderate physical exercise, combined with computer use late in life, is associated with a lower risk of mild cognitive impairment, a researcher said here.

 

In a cross-sectional analysis of participants in an aging study, both elements were separately associated with a lower risk of the impairment, according to Yonas Geda, MD, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. But they also showed a significant additive interaction that created a synergistic effect, Geda reported at the annual meeting here of the American Academy of Neurology.
