Resources for Reducing Mental Decline

Founder of Another8, Scott Robarge spends his days recruiting professionals for technology companies in the Bay Area. Away from his career, Scott Robarge is a dedicated supporter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Exercising the brain aids in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s Association states that brain fitness involves four factors, inclding a proper diet, physical exercise, social activity, and mental activity. The latter focuses on developing new connections and cells in the brain to deter mental decline.

Resources that can help a person build cognitive strength include the books Get Your Brain in the Fast Lane by Dr. Michel Noir and Bernard Croisile and The Memory Bible: An Innovative Strategy for Keeping Your Brain Young by Gary Small. Likewise, websites such as Luminosity offer more than 40 games that are specifically designed to train the brain. The science-based games focus on different areas, like memory and problem solving. To ensure constant mental fitness, Luminosity sends out training alerts that remind a person to play a game and try out experimental tools. Users can also access data on how other Luminosity members perform on an activity based on age groups.
