Title People with a strong handshake are better at problem-solving, memory tests and reasoning, study shows Media name/outlet Mail Online Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 20/04/18 Description There is some truth in the saying ‘healthy body, healthy mind’, researchers have found.
How physically strong someone is in middle-age can predict how healthy their brains are. People with a stronger hand grip are better at problem-solving, memory tests and reasoning, and have faster reaction times, a study found.
A database of more than 475,000 people showed those with more muscle strength in their hands appeared to have better brains.
The research, led by the University of Manchester, suggests exercise could be a good way to boost brainpower.
