Mental stimulation in older folks lowers MCI

Postby mike » Tue Jul 16, 2019 9:52 am

Here is an interesting study, that should lead to more research...

Notably, the number of mentally stimulating activities participants engaged in at midlife (from the ages of 50 through 65) showed no significant association with the risk of new onset of MCI. But in late life (ages ≥66), engaging in more activities was tied to a significantly reduced risk of incident MCI. Engaging in any two activities in late life showed an HR for MCI of 0.72 (95% CI 0.53-0.99). Engaging in any three late-life activities had an HR of 0.55 (95% CI 0.40-0.77), four activities showed an HR of 0.44 (95% 0.30-0.65), and five had an HR of 0.57 (95% CI 0.34-0.96).

In this vein, there is a lot on the news today about work being protective in women after age 50...
made me think as a stay at home parent. But I read lots and swim etc, maybe it depends what you do and
how much you enjoy it?
