With amazement, I read the news released from the UCLA Memory & Againg Research Center a month ago. They researched a small group of people aged 55-78, they split them into two groups, one group who read text on the internet and one group that web searched the internet several times a day, they had similar educational levels. While they performed these activities they had the participants undergo MRI’s. The group that searched the web showed twice the brain activity, than the group that rarely used the internet. The study found that the decision making and complex reasoning areas of the brain were the areas that showed the increased brain activity. So isn’t it awesome to know that something we love to do is actually good for our brain health! I’m happy with that new study ! Better get busy surfing the net, to get your neural circuits activated and working to their fullest capacity. Happy surfing!
