Alzheimer’s Hard to Spell? Learn German.

 

A study at the Baycrest Research Centre for Aging and the Brain, published in the journal Neuropsychologia, looked at 184 patients , who showed up with complaints of mental decline.

The study found that those patients who spoke more than one language had developed the cognitive impairment, on average, 4 years later than those patients that spoke only one language.

It’s another reminder that your brain is like the rest of your body.  It needs exercise too.
