comment Does not practicing the brain erode its power?
Thank-you abd! I suppose I should have added that perpetual brain exercise do not increase task performance... Keeping an active mind helps to keep our neurons active, which in turn helps to slow the process of synaptic pruning.

Thank-you very much! I wish our rep would carry across all of SE though. That way you could be an "expert" in some areas and have an easier time requesting help in others... Yes, I must agree with you there. If someone hasn't put in the work to find out a little on their own I won't assume they have my knowledge of the subject when answering their question... I also don't like handing people the answers so much, thus why I provided links. :P

Thanks Steven! Unfortunately it wouldn't let me post a third link in the answer section, so I thought it would be better to post it as a comment than not at all. ;) For some reason I can't seem to just answer the CogSci questions... They're all much more complex than people think them to be as there are so many variables. sigh
