Train your memory with words and numbers!

The real crossword puzzler, of course, knew about this much earlier, but now there is finally scientific proof: crossword puzzles and puzzles - this is much more than an exciting hobby and pastime, they also increase your memory and mental abilities.

In 2017, experts from University of Exeter and Royal College of London conducted a serious study that found that study participants who were more involved in puzzles, better cope with tasks related to concentration, reasoning and memory.

The researchers studied data from more than 17,000 participants in the online survey. All participants are healthy people over 50 years old. Among other things, the researchers asked how often participants solved puzzles, such as crossword puzzles, and used online cognitive testing systems to measure various brain functions.

10 years younger

Studies show that brain functions of common puzzles are equivalent to those of a person 10 years younger than them. In tests that tested short-term memory, speed and grammatical reasoning, they performed in the same way as those who were ten years younger.

“We found a direct link between the two factors. The time spent on solving words, as well as the speed and accuracy of the nine cognitive tasks are directly related. These cognitive tasks include various functional aspects of the brain, including concentration, thinking, and memory, ”said Kate Vesnes, a professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University of Exeter School of Medicine.

“The work of the participants, who indicated that they were puzzled more often, was consistently better. We also saw that the more time participants spend figuring out words, the better their performance.”

Increase your IQ

In 2011, a similar, smaller study was conducted, which claimed the same. Training mental memory can increase your IQ. In a 2011 study, a Swiss-American team surveyed a group of students. Their performance improved in the pattern recognition test, often used as an IQ test after students have trained their working memory. Researchers say that mental exercises effectively strengthen your brain and make it respond faster.

As you can see, the puzzle is not only fun, but can also increase your memory and vocabulary. We say: keep puzzling.
