The Brain and TV
How much TV do you watch? Dr. Amir Soas of Case Western Reserve University Medical School in Cleveland has recommended: cut back on TV, because when you watch television, your brain goes into neutral. Case Western plans to study whether people who contract Alzheimer's watched more TV throughout life than healthy seniors. Instead, read, do crossword puzzles, play chess or scrabble, learn a foreign language, or a new hobby.
