Enhancing Cognitive Capacity

A study done by researchers from Australia shows a risk of Alzheimer's disease and dementia in elder individuals can be reduced if they take part-time or full-time college courses. Researchers conducted cognitive tests on 359 individuals. When researchers compared cognitive capacity improvements, 90 percent of the college courses participated individuals shown significant improvements in cognitive capacity compared with 56 percent in non-participants. The lead researcher says stimulating mental capabilities such as adult-education classes later in life may enhance cognitive capacity. Researchers are going to study further as participants age to check the effects of college studies on the delay or risk reduction for dementia. Lead researcher of the study is Megan Lenehan.
