Brain Gyms: Now Physical Exercise Isn't Enough

"The Latest in Mental Health: Working Out at the 'Brain Gym'" by Kelly Greene appeared on the front page of the March 28th Wall Street Journal. It turns out that we people over a certain age can exercise our brains as well as our bodies at gyms being set up all over the country.

While I happen to believe in the theory that exercising our brains on new material as we get older is very important, I'm not ready to sign up at a brain gym. But you may feel differently.

Form your own opinion (exercise your brain!) by reading the Journal article on brain gyms.
