Internet boosts brain of older adults

Posted on Saturday, October 24 2009 @ 20:07:29 CEST by

UCLA researchers put forward the idea that learning to use the Internet has a positive effect on the brain of older adults:
They put forward the idea that learning to use the Internet stimulates neural activation patterns and could enhance brain function and cognition in older adults.

First author Teena D Moody, a senior research associate at the Semel Institute at UCLA, told the press that:

"The results suggest that searching online may be a simple form of brain exercise that might be employed to enhance cognition in older adults."

Co-author Dr Gary Small, a professor of psychiatry at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, who has written a book titled iBrain that describes the impact of new technology on the brain and behavior, said:

"We found that for older people with minimal experience, performing Internet searches for even a relatively short period of time can change brain activity patterns and enhance function."
