  1. MD as a subject...that may be taking Realism a bit too far

  2. I think anything that is out of the normal for you will help create/stimulate more pathways. Unfortunately this may be beyond my hand at the moment but as a (a former one following the last relapse) designer and writer, this wouldn't be out of the norm. So I'm making jewellery (slowly and badly), this is to get the dexterity back in my hand, even better if it helps my thinking. Lots of other brain stimulating things from cryptic crosswords to reading difficult books that I've put off since leaving university. I already walk miles most days and do interval sprinting. It is a shame there is no cohesive information on what can perhaps help, I've managed to pull quite a lot together from books such as the Oxford series on memory and cognition (very basic but good info) to more academic reports on neuroceuticals (cross referenced and researched), plasticity and cognitive exercises. I should write it up at some point.

  3. Art classes sound fun. Make the room smell nice with rosemary essential oil for improved memory.

    'It turns out that there are compounds in rosemary oil that may be responsible for changes in memory performance. One of them is called 1,8-cineole - as well as smelling wonderful (if you like that sort of thing) it may act in the same way as the drugs licensed to treat dementia, causing an increase in a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine.'
