(WVVA) – Learning new skills may be the key to keeping a sharp mind as you age.

A new study compared how different types of activities affect the memory skills of older adults.

Researchers found when seniors engaged in familiar activities at home such as listening to music or doing a crossword puzzle, there is no noticeable effect on the memory.

However, when adults tried something new, the effects were sharp.
