Chicago: A Mediterranean diet may help keep the brain sharp despite signs of dementia in old age, a study has suggested.

Researchers at Rush University in Chicago, USA, found in a study that people who ate a Mediterranean diet performed better in tests of mental function despite having symptoms of Alzheimer's.

Apart from the Mediterranean diet, other important factors in this regard include not smoking and drinking alcohol and regular exercise.
