How surfing can boost your brainpower

If you're like me, it's occurred to you that the Internet may have created a race of cyber- zombies. And like me, you've probably thought that important things like human interaction and the art of conversation has taken a big hit as a result.

Well, some researchers believe that this isn't necessarily the case. In fact, for people in middle age and older, using the Internet could be the key to keeping your minds as sharp as the proverbial tack.

The UCLA study found that surfing the web actually stimulates the part of the brain that's responsible for decision-making and complex reasoning. Which means that kicking around the 'net for a few hours is not a mindless exercise, but is in fact a mind exercise and it's right up there with other brain teasers that have long been known to keep you nimble of thought, such as crossword puzzles.

These kinds of mental activities are particularly important for people later in life, as brain exercises often combat the brain changes that happen as we age. "Internet searching engages complicated brain activity, which may help exercise and improve brain function," said one of the study's leaders.

There you have it! I'm not too good at surfing, I guess that's why they have google, huh? Ha! I have found some pretty weird things by googling!  :o
I know that is a little scary. When my grand sons are with me I stand right there making sure they don't get something they aren't supposed to. 8) super spy! ;)
