Puzzle solving 'won't stop mental decline'

Puzzle solving 'won't stop mental decline' Doing crossword puzzles and Sudoku does not protect against mental decline, according to a new study.

The idea of "use it or lose it" when it comes to our brains in later life has previously been widely accepted.

This provides a "higher cognitive point" from which to decline, say the researchers.

But the study did not who that they decline any slower. BBC News
