The cognitive enrichment hypothesis suggests that, when getting on in years, all behaviour adopted in a human's life course would have a positive impact on the level of cognitive efficacy. This article aims to argue in favor of this concept by putting forward the findings of studies in the physical stimulation domain. Indeed, several interventionist studies have reported cognitive improvement following physical stimulation in the elderly. In this context, physical solicitation was referred to as either traditional activities or a rising category of recreational activities called exergames. © 2012 Elsevier Masson SAS.
