Books, games, even crossword puzzles can improve memory

Knoxville (WVLT) - Do those crossword puzzles you do every evening really help your memory? New research out of the Mayo Clinic says it does.

The study looked at just under 200 people between the ages of 70 and 89.

Researchers found that during later years, reading books, playing games, participating in arts and crafts and working on the computer led to a 30 to 50 percent decrease in the risk of developing a loss of memory, compared to those who did nothing.
