Use It or Lose It: Dancing Makes You Smarter!
A 21 year study of senior citizens, 75 years and older, was led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City and reported in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study wanted to see if any physical or cognitive activities influenced mental acuity. One of the surprises of the study was that almost none of the physical activities appeared to offer any protection against dementia. There can be cardiovascular benefits of course, but the focus of this study was the mind.
There was one important exception: the only physical activity to offer protection against dementia was frequent dancing.
