Don't let your memory slip-slide away

by on
in Office Technology

Forgetting a good friend’s name or losing your glasses is one thing at age 25. But when it happens at age 50, many people begin to worry about their mental decline.

Research has shown that the brain’s plasticity allows it to be exercised back into shape (to a certain extent).

Flexing your gray matter pays off in better memory down the road. Exercise your mind by learning another language, playing a musical instrument or tackling crossword puzzles. Or get a mental workout with these computer-based products:

  • Nintendo’s Brain Age 2, a popular video game of simple math and memory exercises (www.brainage.com; $19.99).
  • Posit Science’s computer-based “cognitive behavioral training” exercises (www.positscience.com; $395).
  • MindFit, a software-based program that does a cognitive assessment of more than a dozen different skills, then delivers a personalized training regimen (www.e-mindfitness.com; $149).
