Q. Can you tell me more about Brain games?

There are many new brain games now advertised by Nintendo and others. Are they doing anything to delay Alzheimer’s
A1Interesting comment. I'll check the link.
A2Some research have proven that those kind of brain games can help stimulating the areas in our brain, and then help us in improving our brain function, which can be implemented in every single aspect of our daily life.

Here is a link to brain age :

A3This is a question that is often asked by individuals that are tuned in to innovations. Indeed, many of the software programs marketed today are designed to exercise a broad range of thinking and information processing brain skills. They provide an opportunity to activate different areas of the brain that people typically do not use in their routine daily life. It is important to seek out opportunities for mental challenge and stimulation. When looking for such a program, look for a program exercising a broad set of skills and check that the company has a strong scientific advisory board behind it. Also, try the exercises to see that you are having fun while exercising. Otherwise, you are unlikely to continue to do them. I liked My Vigorous Mind because it was very easy to use, they have many activities and it is fun. Lumosity is another fun program and MindFit is interesting as it tailors a training program for each user.

Q. I did a bad movement with my knee during a ball game. How can I know if I damaged the knee ligaments?

4 hours ago I played basketball. I did a great jump but when I landed I felt a very sharp knee pain? How can I know if I damaged the ligaments there?
AThe only way to know for sure is to check! Can estimate the severity of the problem. Is your knee red? Is it hot? Is it swollen? Does the pain have the same severity or does the pain increase with time? If you answered one of those questions with a 'yes' several hours after the injury, you should probably talk to your GP
