AARP Games for Peak Brain Fitness
As fans of AARP games and readers of the AARP magazine know quite well, the AARP emphatically supports the idea that brain games (AARP games and others), along with the right foods and regular physical exercise, can help lead to peak brain fitness. In its roundup of brain training programs the AARP puts MindSparke at the top of the list. And in its various features on brain games, AARP magazine emphasizes that puzzles and brain games can improve your memory, reasoning, motor skills and ability to visualize objects in three-dimensional space, helping ward off the mental decline that can come with age.
Contrary to the long held scientific dogma that the brain is a fixed gray lump, our brains never stop growing and changing, both structurally and in the ways they operate. Beyond childhood, brain scientists refer to new brain growth as adult neurogenesis and to changes in the brain's wiring as brain plasticity. Brain games can increase the number of connections in the brain, and even the volume of brain cells, benefiting thinking skills, speed, and mental acumen.
