This chapter focuses on the effects that lifestyle factors have on the cognitive and brain integrity of animals and humans. Studies show that lifestyle factors, including diet, exercise, and cognitive stimulation, will have a positive impact on cognitive aging if they are jointly experienced. The chapter highlights the additive effects of diet, exercise, and cognitive training in the observational studies conducted on humans and animals. The importance of additional studies investigating the combination of lifestyle factors that are beneficial to cognitive aging is explored.

Keywords:   lifestyle factors, cognitive integrity, brain integrity, cognitive training
