A novel study looked at both exercise and computer use. It has been known for quite some time that exercise decreases MCI (mild cognitive impairement). This study then factored in exercise. Exercise can be as simple as walking a mile or two a day or running 5-10. Amazingly, computer use and exercise combined was a clear winner. Instead of a 35% cognitive decline in elderly adults, they saw a 5% decline. This may be from simply keeping the mind active and enhancing connections in the brain, or it could be just that the users of computers who exercise have a healthier and more regimented lifestyle.
