The Global Council on Brain Health (GCBH) has released a report which summarises evidence-based recommendations for the public on adopting cognitively stimulating activities which may help to minimise cognitive decline.
Brain training games appear to provide few of the benefits sometimes suggested. The GCBH report instead recommends “seeking out new activities that challenge the way you think and are socially engaging, while leading a healthy lifestyle”.
Playing brain games ‘of little benefit’, say experts. London: BBC Health News, August 2nd 2017.
