True or False:
Doing crossword puzzles can keep your brain young.
Crosswords are fun and may improve your ability to find words, but they don't help your brain's overall cognition or memory.
Many people believe that a crossword puzzle a day will help stave off dementia or Alzheimer's--but there is no evidence to support that claim.
That's because crossword puzzles only flex one part of your brain, which is word finding (also called fluency.)
So they might help you get better at word finding, but not keep your brain sharp in any general sense.
Brain Fact: The two sides of the brain are intricately co-dependent.
You may have heard that you can be "right-brained" or "left-brained"--and that those who favor the right are more creative or artistic and those who favor the left are more technical and logical.
But brain scanning technology has revealed that the two hemispheres of the brain most often work together in complex processing.
For example, language processing, once believed to be the provenance of the left hemisphere only, is now understood to take place in both hemispheres: the left side processes grammar and pronunciation while the right processes intonation.
True or False:
A person's personality displays a right-brain or left-brain dominance.
