2017 has been a remarkable year full of exciting scientific articles, news and results from a lot of relevant studies. By far, the biggest highlight came very recently when the life changing results of the dementia study were published on November 16th. Take some time to reflect on the fact that by completing just 18 hours of a specific cognitive training exercise rates of dementia can be cut nearly in half. I am looking forward to making 2018 the year when more health care providers take action on this.
