    Anything stimulating the brain helps against many forms of dementia because it stimulates the formation of new neural networks and the formation of the biochemicals necessary to keep the synapses working efficiently.  This can be anything from games like chess to crossword puzzles to trying new quilting patterns.

    Personally, at 66, besides chess, I happily struggle to read complicated classical piano music and play it at the same time, it read books/articles on advanced physics, chemistry, biology, music and stock investing.  Hopefully, that will keep my mind sharp!

     

    Mick, you're a cool and great guy.  You are a blessing to many people.  God bless you.

    I think chess is great for ALL  ages....at my age chess helps me with stress, chess keeps me somehow mentally  stable,  helps me  dealing with 57 employees,  a husband, a child and a 4 pound Maltese that thinks is a pitbul.  Chess helps !!!!

    I was planning to learn how to play chess when I got older in order to reduce the risk of getting Alzheimer's but I forgot.
