Dancing Tango Maintains Memory

From anitabchu
to St_Louis_Tango

By chance, Fred and I were interviewed Friday (Jan 20th 2006) at the St Louis Science Center about Tango.

What started as a public lecture on Alzheimers led to a review of how complex tasks, including TANGO dancing, helps memory and maybe can delay onset of Alzheimers. It's a hot neuroscience topic at this very moment and the story has been carried in New England Journal of Medicine, USATODAY, BBCnews, etc.

So, our best advice, keep dancing and especially Tango dancing.
