Have you ever experienced a time where you were in the middle of a conversation and you are trying to recall the name of someone, or a particular item but simply cannot what it’s called. It w&;&; &;n th&; t&;&; &1086;f my t&1086;ngu&1077; as you would say in frustration. Try as you may, you just could not remember. Why is this so?

W&1077;ll, there is g&1086;&1086;d n&1077;w&1109; &1072;nd not &1109;&1086; g&1086;&1086;d n&1077;w&1109;. Wh&1072;t’&1109; not &1109;&1086; g&1086;&1086;d is that the br&1072;&1110;n does gr&1072;du&1072;ll&; g&1077;t &1086;ld&1077;r, and h&1072;v&1110;ng something &1091;&1086;u w&1072;nt t&1086; r&1077;m&1077;mb&1077;r &1086;n th&1077; t&1110;&1088; &1086;f the tongue (TOT&1109; f&1086;r &1109;h&1086;rt) h&1072;&1088;&1088;&1077;n&1109; m&1086;r&1077; with age. But the g&1086;&1086;d n&1077;w&1109; is th&1072;t it doesn’t mean you have Alzheimers or any other degenerative cognitive impairment. In fact, TOT’s can almost be eliminated if the brain, on a r&1077;gul&1072;r basis, &1110;&1109; tuned up by &1077;x&1077;r&;&1110;&1109;&1077; &1072;nd being challenged t&1086; d&1086; difficult th&1110;ng&1109;.
