Possible Methods to Prevent Cognition Decline

There are studies going on that suggest that different foods, certain nutrients and exercise may have an effect on not only preventing amyloid deposits but may have an effect in clearing them. Some of the studies that are going on are based on observation of lower rates of Alzheimer’s in populations that use certain foods.
One can easily search for these studies at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed; I will mention a few of these studies
For example, observation of Indian & Southeast Asian populations that tend to eat a lot of curry have stimulated studies on Turmeric as a possible clearing mechanisms http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20622013
Rosemary has a very old reputation for improving memory, and has been used as a symbol for remembrance (during weddings, war commemorations and funerals) in Europe and Australia In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.”
Here’s a study of the effect of rosemary aroma on cognition  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12690999
In one study, greater amounts of walking are associated with greater gray matter volume, which is in turn associated with a reduced risk of cognitive impairment. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20944075?dopt=Abstract
There are studies that suggest that B vitamins may lower the rate of brain atrophy http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0012244
At the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society on  August 23, 2010, research on cultured mouse hippocampal cells,  found that extracts of blueberries, strawberries, and acai berries help autophagy, a method by which toxic debris are sequestered in the brain. Studies have shown that this “housekeeping” function in the brain declines considerably as we age, which can lead to the buildup of proteins linked to age-related mental decline and memory loss. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/727764?src=mpnews
