"Leisure activities mediate the effect of education on performance in the CS. Computer use, reading books, and crosswords seem to have the greatest impact on better cognitive performance in older age, especially on Verbal and Visuo-graphomotor cognitive domains. Based on the results, we can assume that leisure activities, especially the intellectually demanding, may have a positive impact on cognitive performance in older adults, moreover, activities have the potential to mitigate the negative impact of lower education."
