Working crossword puzzles has been shown to be a simple activity that can help prevent or at least stave off some forms of mental atrophy. It is a medical fact that as you grow old and/or cease presenting yourself on a regular basis with mental and physical challenges, your brain actually begins to lose gray matter and synapse interconnections are lost. Working crossword puzzles is a healthy mental exercise that helps increase your vocabulary and improve cognitive skills. That is one reason I create a weekly crossword puzzle for RF Cafe visitors. Electronics magazines of the last century regularly published theme-based crosswords, like this one from a 1960 edition of Electronics World.
