Staying Engaged In Certain Activities May Help Stave Off Development Of MCI, Research Suggests

MedPage Today (3/3) reports, “Staying engaged in activities like reading, crafting, and socializing may stave off the development of mild cognitive impairment (MCI),” research suggests. “In an analysis of data from the Mayo Clinic Study of Aging” to be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting in April, “five ‘mentally stimulating’ activities – playing games, reading magazines, doing crafts, using the computer, and social activities – were each associated with a reduced risk of MCI in patients 70 and up.”
