    Couple of drinks can help memory
    Wed Sep 29, 6:00 PM ET

    DALLAS (Reuters) - Older women who have a drink or two a day have better
    memory skills than non-drinkers, University of Texas researchers say.
    "Moderate drinkers reported less depression, had higher self-reported health,
    performed better on instrumental everyday tasks ... and (had) improved memory
    performance," Dr. Graham McDougall, associate professor of nursing at the
    university, said in a statement on Wednesday.


    The five-year survey, which began in 2001, is looking at men and women with an
    average age 75 in central Texas. As part of the study, a group of women were
    asked to remember items such as a story, the placement of hidden objects, future
    intentions and connecting random numbers and letters. Those who drank alcohol
    in moderation did better on the tests than those who did not drink at all,
    according to the study. "In addition to their actual performance on tests, the
    confidence of those who drank was higher and they used more strategies to
    facilitate memory," McDougall said.
