Fighting Alzheimer's With Brain Games
by Vanessa J Cooper
The reason that we can use brain games to fight Alzheimer's is that the brain can be
molded. It is not rigid cement like object. If it is tended to, it will become stronger but
if it is left alone, its power will decrease. (By playing brain games, one helps the brain
retain its cognitive abilities and associations (www.helpguide.org).

One game that has been suggested many times is Sudoku. The Alzheimer's
Association of Northern California suggests playing Sudoku or games like Sudoku to
keep the brain healthy. The popular website ehow.com also promotes Sudoku
putting the emphasis on the need to number crunch.

Doctor William Reichman of the Toronto's Bay Crest Center believes that if
Alzheimer's can be delayed by ten years, it will eradicate the disease
(www.edmontonsun.com). This adds to the importance of keeping our brain active.
While brain games are not the only way and many other activities should be used, it
is nonetheless integral to the brain fitness program.

According to John Hopfield of Princeton University, Sudoku requires us to use a
unique set of our neural pathways known as "association
memory"(www.abc.net.au). This adds to the legitimacy of using Sudoku in the fight
against Alzheimer's.

Sudoku is not the only game that can or should be used to fight against Alzheimer's.
However it is a good start. Wooden Sudoku sets are fantastic for those who do not
want to always have to buy the Sudoku magazines. In addition they are larger and
therefore easier to see and are great for the bedroom or living room.

It will not be an easy fight, but hopefully with the help of brain games, Alzheimer's
and other forms of dementia can be prolonged and one day ultimately eradicated.
One of the most used phrases when
dealing with Alzheimer's is that while
there is no cure, there are definitely
strategies that can be employed to
delay its debilitating effect. While the
ultimate hand dealt by Alzheimer's is
death, on the way, it causes memory
lapse and weird behavior. This can
occur over a sustained period of
time, therefore, it is imperative that
those with Alzheimer's exercise their
brain. It has been proven time and
time again that brain exercise helps
to fight the disease and preserve the
brain as a functioning organ.
