Credit: EricHolsingerA Multitasking Video Game Makes Old Brains Act Younger
According to the New York Times, “Brain scientists have discovered that swerving around cars while simultaneously picking out road signs in a video game can improve the short-term memory and long-term focus of older adults. Some people as old as 80, the researchers say, begin to show neurological patterns of people in their 20s.”
