Grandma’s on Facebook!

A study came through my daily news feed – you can find it on Web MD. The following is quoted:

“We found that for older people with minimal experience, performing Internet searches for even a relatively short period of time can change brain activity patterns and enhance function,” says researcher Gary Small, MD, a professor of psychiatry at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, in a news release.

Having taught “older people” how to use Facebook, load an iPod and search You Tube, I sympathize with those doing the training!

  1. This is so interesting! And I’m flattered that my mom is the inspiration for your post. (Great blog, by the way… I’ve got you bookmarked!)
