Strong vocabulary protects against cognitive decline
from Psych Central
New research suggests a robust vocabulary may reduce mild cognitive impairment and lead to a lower risk of developing dementia. Mild cognitive impairment or incipient dementia is a condition that some people develop as they age. Many experts believe it is an intermediate state between normal cognition and dementia. MCI is defined as cognitive decline greater than expected for an individual's age and education level but that does not interfere notably with activities of daily life. Symptoms often include forgetfulness and a decline in executive skills.
