Having Close Friends in Old Age May Prevent Early Mental Decline
According to a new study, published in the journal PLOS One, having close friends in old age may stay off mental decline.
The study was executed by a team of researchers from the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center (CNADC) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, USA. For the study, the researchers asked 31 superagers and 19 age-matched controls to complete a 42-item questionnaire that inquired about their psychological well-being.
Senior author of the study Emily Rogalski, an associate professor at CNADC, says: “[If] there is a list of healthy choices one can make, such as eating a certain diet and not smoking, maintaining strong social networks may be an important one on that list. None of these things by [themselves guarantee] you don’t get the disease, but they may still have health benefits.”
