LAHORE: A healthy lifestyle, learning a new language and practicing mathematics can delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, said Mohsin Shafiq, a PhD scholar from Georg-August University Goettingen, Germany. Speaking at a seminar on ‘Alzheimer’s Disease and Corresponding Progression Rate Modifiers’, he presented his research findings related to involvement of prions, which is a very small unit of protein that may cause brain diseases, including Alzheimer’s. Some of the main symptoms of the disease include slurred speech, memory impairment, loss of concentration and words, lack of interest and repetition.
