In a St. Joseph Health Scene report, if your grand-kids play video games, you may want to consider picking up the hobby. Researchers studied adults in their 60's and 70's and found after playing a strategy based video game, they improved their scores on cognitive function tests. The results on memory and reasoning tests improved after a month of playing. It's unknown how long the benefits may last or if all strategic games would have the same effect.
