Middletown, NJ (PRWEB) July 11, 2013
Anant Goel, CEO at RKNet Studios stated: "Brain stimulating activities that include playing intelligence game 21 Bridge early in life, can reduce memory decline and enhance cognitive skills with age."
According to the study, that tracked 294 individuals, published online in the July issue of Neurology.
“Brain Stimulating Activities Reduce Memory Decline.”
Reading, writing and participating in other brain-stimulating activities at any age may protect your memory later in life, according to research.
Robert Wilson, the study’s lead author, stated: “Our study suggests that exercising your brain by taking part in activities such as these across a person’s lifetime, from childhood through old age, is important for brain health in old age.”
The Times in an article based on the study reported:
“Mild cognitive impairment, in which older adults show lapses in memory and other mental functions that aren’t serious enough to impair their daily activities, affects about 10 percent to 20 percent of those over age 70.”
“Each year, about 10 percent of these people will progress to develop dementia, a more serious form of impairment that can drastically affect their independence and ability to function.
Because recent studies hinted that physical activity could improve cognitive function in the elderly, the researchers also evaluated trials that included resistance and balance training as well as aerobic activities. Researchers write, “There is some evidence that physical exercise may have a positive benefit, and given its countless other medical benefits, it should be encouraged with all patients.”
By far the intervention that showed the most dramatic benefits among healthy elderly adults involved mental exercise. These trials involved participants learning computer-based training programs or performing memory, reasoning and speed-processing exercises. Those who were trained on these types of skills showed significantly better memory and attention skills than those who did not, and one trial even reported that participants retained improved memory at a five year follow-up.
Anant Goel stated: "Serious study of neurogenesis and neuroplasticity indicates that real life cognitive skills development games should have, at the very least, the following attributes:
"Dynamically engage, nurture, and develop multiple cognitive skills in a progressively complex, multitasking, and competitive environment with an objective. When playing against the computer or a friend, thus simulating real life environment, it should have a clearly defined objective to win while having fun.”
RKNet Studios have launched Cognitions Bridge suite of six games for brain fitness, cognitive skills, and social skills development... with all of the above mentioned attributes. Take the challenge and download 21 Bridge game; to Smartest your brain fitness and cognitive skills in real life competitive environment.
Progressively increasing complexity and the need to engage multiple cognitive skills create Cognitions Bridge; a network of efficient and faster pathways to engage different parts of the brain in a networked and collaborative manner… and that develops cognitive reserves and increased complexity of neuronal synapses.
In a game of 21 Bridge, up to 21 cognitive skills are engaged and developed in a competitive play environment with an objective to win... the perfect recipe for accelerated cognitive development in children and adults. The game also provides computer based mentoring; and scores game results, grades cognitive skills, and monitors progress.”
By connecting the tablet to a TV, the entire family can join-in a competitive game of fun and social engagement.
Cognitions Bridge games can be downloaded on tablets from Google PLAY Store or the Apple APP Store.
