"Call it neurobics, a term coined by Duke University neurobiology professor Lawrence Katz. It means using oneor more of your senses in an unusual way."

  Usenet exx. back to 1996.  Thousands of RGs; even more for "neorobic," adj.

  The _locus classicus_ must be Lawrence C. Katz & Manning Rubin,  _Keep Your Brain Alive : 83 Neurobic Exercises to Help Prevent Memory Loss and Increase Mental Fitness_ (N.Y.: Workman, 1999).
