Do Try This At Home: How Sharp Is Your Brain?

NBC News had an interesting piece on a self-test for mental acuity, reportedly developed by Ohio State University in response to the growing number of Elder Boomers who apparently are concerned about distinguishing between "ordinary" forgetfulness or changes in brain function.  (Really?  Is that what aging boomers are worrying about?)

In any event, NBC's medical expert, Nancy Snyderman, reminds us that OSU's "Sage Test" (good name, consumer friendly!) is just one tool to assist in early identification of potential problems -- and is not an ultimate diagnosis. 

Alternative links are available to access the test, either on the NBC Nightly News website  or at OSU: http://sagetest.osu.edu/
