Playing Games and Doing Puzzles May Help Delay Onset of Alzheimer’s

According to a new study, keeping the brain active through reading, playing games, and doing puzzles may help delay the onset of Alzheimer’s by up to 5 years.

Participants in the study included 1,903 adults with an average age of 80 who did not have Alzheimer’s at the beginning of the study. Participants reported their participation in activities such as reading, playing games, and doing puzzles. They were followed for an average of 7 years, and all incidences of Alzheimer’s were reported.

Participants who participated in the above-mentioned activities several times per week tended to develop Alzheimer’s at the age of 94. Those who participated in the activities only several times per year tended to develop Alzheimer’s by the age of 89. These findings held after adjusting for other factors that may affect Alzheimer’s risk such as education level and gender.

The study was conducted by researchers from Rush University Medical Center. It was published online ahead of print on July 14, 2021, in the journal Neurology.
