The researchers found that using a computer, playing games and participating in social activities could reduce the risk of mild cognitive impairment.

New research suggests that games, the use of a computer and having a rich social life may contain a slight cognitive decline.
Our brain changes as we get older and some people may have problems with memory, thinking or judgment.
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is the phase between cognitive decline related to age and dementia; however, the MCI does not have a significant impact on daily life and activities.
People with MCI tend to forget things, lose their thoughts or the thread of the conversation and feel overwhelmed by the options available to them. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 16 million people in the United States have cognitive impairment.

ICM can increase the risk of dementia, but not everyone develops it.
In general, any other type of mental stimulant activity has beneficial effects on brain health:
• The use of middle-aged and older computers has reduced the risk of MCI by 37%.
Social activity, crosswords or intermediate and subsequent card games have reduced the risk of losing control by 20%.
• Crafts reduced the risk of MCI by 42%, but later in life.

The researchers found that the amount of activities that stimulate the mind also plays an important role in the risk of developing an IBD. Among those who participated in the study, those who participated in two or more activities found the following benefits:
For those who participated in two or three activities, the probability of development of the MIC was 28% and 45% lower, respectively, than those who did not perform any activity.
Participation in four or five activities reduced the risk of developing an ICM of 56% and 43%, respectively.
