Does travel keep the brain young?

Jump to last reply

As someone with a strong family history of dementia, I was fascinated by this very good BBC TV programme which some of you may be able to catch up with. It made me reflect on the impact of travel on the health of the brain. In summary the programme suggests keeping physically active especially walking; continuing to learn new skills, and eating certain foods ie blackcurrants, blueberries and aubergines.

I am sure travel ticks many of the boxes as it encourages active exploration and the learning of new languages as a skill. Any other insights?
