Normal loss of brain cells and declining of blood flow between brain neurons may be primarily responsible for a person’s poor memory, intelligence and learning. However, some steps can be taken to exercise a senior’s brain.
Age advances and with it comes the feeling that the head no longer functions as before. Instead of accepting this situation as an inevitable consequence of aging, you can react.
Your daily habits play a very important role in helping to prevent memory loss and other age-related impairment of mental functions.
Never think that you are too old to learn new things. The human brain has neuroplasticity, the amazing ability to change, create new brain cells and increase the connections between them, even in old age. However, to harness this potential, you must exercise it.

But, instead of physical exercise, mental exercise involves reading books and newspapers, doing crossword puzzles, and enrolling in a course of your interest, among other activities that are both, stimulating and challenging.
