“To keep the brain and memory functioning in a youthful way, it’s important to give it regular ‘exercise’ the same as the rest of the body." - Mark Rosenberg, M.D.

Citing the research of psychologists John Horn and Raymond Cattell, HealthyAnswers.com relates that it is possible for people to optimize their fluid intelligence – the way people learn when they are younger – and optimize brain function even past the age of 40.

As HealthyAnswers.com expert Mark Rosenberg, M.D. explains, “Challenging the brain to learn and experience new things does the same thing for cognitive functioning as different muscle training exercises does for the body – it stimulates brain health and growth. It also stimulates “feel good” dopamine hormones in the brain that helps fight depression and lowers stress and cortisol levels that cause irritability and short-circuits memory.”

HealthyAnswers.com also reports that fluid intelligence traditionally drops off around age 40 and crystallized intelligence – learning based on past experience – takes over. As Horn and Cattell’s research states, when people get older they tend to rely on what they already know as a basis for interpreting new information and forming new opinions. However, people can keep their brain sharp by continuing to stimulate their fluid intelligence learning skills through several different methods that HealthyAnswers.com lists.
