How can brain activity speed up dementia?

    This is a very recent discovery, and an interesting one. In essence, scientists used to think that those with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease should engage in lots of mental exercise to keep the brain healthy. Just recently, it has been discovered that this was exactly NOT the right thing to do. For some reason, engaging in mental exercises seemed to accelerate the degeneration of the brain. Scientists are still working on the exact reason why.

    It reminds me of the quote by Dr. Tyrell in the movie Blade Runner: “The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long.”
