Can Brain Training Prevent Dementia?

Alzheimers Disease and other forms of dementia have started to attract more research recently because of their prevalence (currently 800,000 people in the UK have dementia) and the devastating effect that they can have on individuals and families. One question being explored is whether doing regular activities that challenge the brain such as sudokos or crosswords or computer games can help to reduce your risk of developing dementia. You can find the Alzheimer's Society's account of research done so far at the link below:
