The results of the tests show that cognitive scores declined in all categories except vocabulary - and there was a faster decline in older people.
The study found a 9.6% decline in mental reasoning in men aged 65-70 and a 7.4% decline for women of the same age.
For men and women aged 45-49, there was a 3.6% decline.
I have 'senior moments' quite often as it is, and I have a great fear of dementia (my great-grandmother had Alzheimer's; my diabetes means I'm at a higher risk for dementia as well). So you can see I didn't care for this story. It's just a reminder of how important it is to exercise the mind as well as the body.
