Faith, Reason and Dementia

Glaube, Sinn und Demenz

A study has shown that nuns do not suffer from dementia in old age, even where their brains have all the typical attributes to predispose them to Alzheimer's. Obviously their brains have generated new connections. What enabled this to happen? Faith, worthwhile lives doing social work, rules, retreat, collaboration or lived compassion - or all of these? The primary cause of dementia is not the deterioration of the brain, but the loss of the brain's ability to regenerate itself. Because even at an advanced age, the human brain is able to compensate for even severe deterioration by activating new connections.
