Abstract:I tested whether cognition improves a middle-aged individual's cellular immunity and hemoglobin count by cognitively stimulating twelve participants for one hour through a game of chess. Twelve subjects sat idly during this time. A blood sample was taken from each subject's arm before and after the hour. Cognitively stimulated participants experienced a rise in these blood component levels. The idle participants, experienced no significant change.
