Cold air can ‘impair cognitive performance’ research finds

Research reveals that even a brief exposure to cold can fog your brain – affecting memory, attention, and cognitive speed.

Tutor House highlights a study appearing in a leading scientific journal that reveals cold air can impair cognitive performance, even in healthy individuals. This winter-induced brain fog varies with each person’s physiological response to cold and can impact memory, attention, and speed of processing. Tutor House has provided their top 5 tips to prevent memory loss this winter.

A spokesperson for Tutor House:

“This groundbreaking research is not just about the physical discomfort of cold. It reveals a crucial link between our environment and cognitive functions. The implications are particularly significant as we approach the coldest months, a time when many might unknowingly experience a dip in mental sharpness due to colder temperatures.

5 tips to prevent memory loss this winter

1. Layer Up: Dress in warm layers to maintain a comfortable body temperature, especially when stepping outside

2. Monitor Weather Forecasts: Stay informed about the weather to prepare adequately for cold days.

3. Indoor Climate Control: Keep your living and working spaces at a comfortable temperature.

4. Stay Active: Engage in regular physical activity to boost blood circulation and maintain overall health, which can help your body better regulate temperature.

5. Healthy Diet: Consume a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals, supporting overall brain health and resilience against environmental stressors.


A spokesperson for Tutor House:

“The brain’s ability to adapt to varying temperatures is a testament to human resilience, but it also underscores the need for proactive measures. By staying informed about weather changes, dressing appropriately, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, we can safeguard our cognitive abilities against the chill of winter.
