(PRWEB) December 13, 2012

Fort Lauderdale, FL: The Project for Natural Health Choices Inc. encourages playing cards and board games as these may actually contribute to a healthier brain according to new research conducted by Rush University Medical Center and the Illinois Institute of Technology. The research results, presented on November 25, 2012 at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, suggest that playing cards and board games can help fight brain aging.

The study had 152 subjects with an average age of 81 years old. Researchers conducted MRI scans on the participants who performed these kinds of activities. The team found a significant association between this kind of brain use and structural integrity in several areas of white matter in the brain. White brain matter is composed of nerve fibers, or axons, that transmit information throughout the brain and is essential to cognitive function.

According to researcher, Konstantinos Arfanakis, partaking in a few of the following simple leisure activities can contribute to a healthier brain:

-Reading the newspaper
-Writing letters
-Visiting a library
-Attending a play or playing games, such as chess or checkers
