But don't despair because experts agree that you can help prevent this decline with a bit of daily brain exercise. And we're not talking about working out whodunit whilst watching Scooby Doo re-runs or attempting to beat your high score on Ape Escape.
No, what you need to do is regularly activate your pre-frontal cortex - you know, the part of the brain that controls creativity, memory, communication and self-control. And you need to do it by buying the Brain Trainer.
Small practical size!
Already huge in Japan, this scientifically proven gizmo has been designed to train your noodle via a series of simple mathematical drills. Created by acknowledged brain expert, Dr. Ryuta Kawashima, the Brain Trainer features several modes that will stimulate and enhance your mental power by giving your noggin a daily workout.
Basic Training Mode involves solving 100 easy sums. Once you've got to grips with that you can move on to Advanced Training Mode. This consists of a timed counting out loud test, a focus test in which you must add random numbers that briefly appear on screen, and a memory test where you have to recall sequences of numbers. You can even monitor your brain's progress over 30 days or a whole year via a series of nifty graphs.
Brain Trainer Advanced
If you're looking to give your brain the ultimate mental workout, Brain Trainer Advanced will have your poor old noodle sweating, panting and begging for mercy. This deluxe gizmo features a touch-screen with stylus and a whole host of modes, including a function that measures the stress your brain is under.

There's also a training mode where you must skip between various mental exercises (circuit-training styley), a shape recognition test, plus a card counting test. Add to this a maths test and a brilliant feature in which you must memorise numerous phone numbers and you've got, erm...well, we can't quite remember at the mo but we know it's hideously addictive and highly effective.
Flexing your intellectual muscles each day with the Brain Trainer is surprisingly entertaining and addictive, even for maths-haters. And you'll be amazed how much sharper your mind feels after a bit of regular exercise. So don't degenerate into a divvy; buy this ingenious gizmo pronto. It's a complete no-brainer!
