  1. Exercising regularly
    Enhances object recognition memory—the ability to discriminate the familiarity of previously encountered objects.
  2. Playing a musical instrument
    Enhances cognitive skills and academic achievement by promoting the development of certain executive functions.
  3. Playing video games
    Develops working memory—the system responsible for holding and processing new and already-stored information.
  4. Learning a new language
    Speaking multiple languages improves the brain's executive function—meaning mentally demanding tasks can be performed better.
  5. Reading
    Daily reading causes significant increases in connectivity in the left temporal vortex of the brain—an area associated with receptivity for language.
