What is Cognitive Ability?

Cognitive abilities are core skills of our brain to carry out any task from the simplest to the most complex. It involves the mechanisms of how we learn, remember, problem-solve, and pay attention.

Our ability to concentrate allows us to accomplish amazing things — when it’s working well. Not able to pay attention could be due to a loss of interest or enjoyment in activities, a decrease in energy, a depressed mood, and low self-esteem. The ability to pay attention declines as we experience more and we are unable to filter out distraction. Besides distraction from the environment, the ability to pay attention can also be due to genetic factor.

Smoking

Smokers tend to have higher chances of associating with cognitive impairments such as deficits in attention, working memory and response inhibition functions.

Diet

Poor nutrition and diet (e.g. low consumption of omega-3 fatty acids food) will affect the ability of learning and cognitive function especially in children. Besides that, children with iron deficiency can also lead to impairment in both motor and cognitive function.

Alcohol

Binge drinking or alcohol abuse can cause cognitive impairment which results in problems with verbal fluency and verbal learning, processing speed, working memory, attention, problem solving, spatial processing, and impulsivity.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. The caffeine in coffee and energy drinks has been found to have positive effects on cognition by helping to keep focus and attention.
  2. Consume foods with creatine or creatine supplements to increase the ability to focus. Creatine is a compound found in meats and protein foods. Studies have shown that creatine brings positive effects on working memory, processing speed, and provides better attention.
  3. Fruit-rich diet may decrease the risk of cognition impairment. For example, blueberries which contain antioxidants molecules are found to be beneficial in a learning environment.
  4. Consume dark chocolate occasionally, as it consists of flavonoids which help to enhance cognitive function especially in the elderly.

Lifestyle Recommendations:

  1. Be sure to get 8 hours of quality sleep as the lack of quality sleep will impair your memory, creativity, judgement, and attention.
  2. Light to moderate alcohol consumption for women (< 8 cups) and men (< 15 cups) per week, may show the effect of protecting against cognitive decline.
  3. Adopt habits such as reading to train and strengthen the particular brain functions.
