It’s all about keeping your brain young!
Maintaining a healthy diet and keeping regular exercise as part of your routine is important to your general health, but keeping a healthy brain is equally important, especially in later life.
Through research with mice and humans, scientists have found that brainy activities stimulate new connections between nerve cells and may even help the brain generate new cells, developing neurological “plasticity” and building up a functional reserve that provides a hedge against future cell loss.
We are constantly stimulating our minds through everyday activities such as work, reading and day to day problem solving, but some extra fun in the form of our Friday Brain Workout certainly won’t do any harm. It’s also a nice way to finish the week!!
So on to the answer of this Fridays Brain Workout.
Did you think it was number 7? Most people did!
The answer is in fact number 3
If you look closely you can see that 5, 6 and 7 have blocked connections, as the connection to 3 is lower than that of 2, it will fill first while the rest of the glasses will remain empty.
Enjoy the weekend!
