Kathleen Connell, a 100 year old Scottish woman that loves tea and not dying, said Nintendo has “helped to keep my brain as active as possible in my old age.” Trevor Mogg of the website Digital Trends writes that researchers at the University of California claim “to have found a connection between activities that stimulate the brain and levels of a kind of protein that is believed to cause Alzheimer’s, a disease marked by dementia and memory loss.” For Ms.

Connell, however, she doesn’t need no stinkin’ science to convince her that the DS has helped her memory, having earned a mental age score of 64 on “Brain Trainer.” “I can’t speak highly enough of this Nintendo,” the old bean enthused.
