Mental Stimulation and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Alzheimer’s disease is thought to result from build up of amyloid beta protein in the brain. This protein can interfere with nerve cell communication, gradually eroding a person’s mental processes and memory. Regular, prolonged exposure to a mentally stimulating environment appears to prevent amyloid beta proteins from negatively affecting the brain’s inner workings.
