Study Finds Method That May Improve Brain Function In Adults 80+
When the 24 weeks were up, participants in the intervention group were found to have improved both cognitively and physically, and were able to maintain those results. Meanwhile, those in the control group remained the same in their mental capacity.
The idea around Synapsology is to combine classic, simple games that require motor function (such as rock, paper, scissors), and activities that require brain power (a math calculation or memory game) in order to stimulate and improve cognitive and physical function over time. The program is even designed for older participants to activate multiple regions of their brain, displaying the benefit of challenging the brain to stay sharp.
