pikun1Symptoms of dementia such as memory loss will be reduced in people who take higher education. Spending the time to read, explore and prepare for the exam book has physical benefits when old.

This study strengthens previous research has shown that higher education can help provide protection or against end-stage symptoms of an illness on the person.

In conducting this study, researchers from the University of Gothenburg analyze spinal fluid in patients to examine whether there were signs of dementia in the brain.

“We wanted to investigate how education can have an impact on a disease or the early stages of dementia. Based on this study, patients with higher education levels, able to tolerate more disease in the brain and prevent dementia,” said Dr. Sindre Rolstad, a psychologist Sweden, as quoted from Dailymail.

The study also found high-educated patients who have no risk of dementia showed signs of a better neural function in the brain, compared with lower educated people.

“These findings mean that higher education is not only able to tolerate more disease in the brain, but also able to sustain a bit of nerve damage that occurred during the early stages of this disease,” Dr Rostland.

These results indicate that higher education can delay the development of symptoms of dementia and other diseases.

Disease or known as senile dementia is a condition that indicates a progressive deterioration of memory and intellectual processes of the brain. This condition is usually characterized by symptoms of forgetfulness that can disrupt daily activities.
