According to an old research, mental ability could be maintained or boosted by playing Sudoku, solving Crossword Puzzles and playing musical instruments at least twice a week.As per the study these activities helped in preventing mental decline.However a new study revealed that regularly engaging in intellectual activities may help in boosting mental ability and provides a “higher cognitive point” from which to decline.

        Dr Staff, Honorary lecturer at the University of Aberdeen and Head of Medical Physics at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, suggested “while those who regularly engage in problem solving puzzles could potentially enhance their mental ability, this does not protect an individual from decline but imparts a higher starting point from which decline is observed”.
