Posted on May 3rd, 2012 by

The combination of mentally stimulating activities such as computer use and moderate physical exercise appears to decrease one's odds of suffering from age-related memory loss, according to a new Mayo Clinic study…Previous studies have shown links between exercising one's mind and exercising one's body to improved memory, but this one, published in the May 2012 issue of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings, suggests that a combination of the two may be most effective…Lead author Dr. Yonas Geda reports that the team singled out computer use because it was such a popular activity, and examined it alongside exercise.
