Afaga is committed to preventing cognitive impairment by playing chess.
This innovative initiative has been materialized through a collaboration agreement between Afaga Alzheimer and the company Xadrez Galego.
The aim of this workshop, which started yesterday, is using chess as a tool for stimulating brain functions and preventing cognitive impairment in healthy adults. The group who has inaugurated this course consists of only women, almost all of them over their 60s.
In the opening season they studied the following topics: letters in chess, the origins of chess and guidelines for chess.
