The brain-changing benefits of exercise | Wendy Suzuki

One of the biggest problems of dyslexics is how they distinguish letters with almost similar sounds. The words are broken into sounds and they are exaggerated or slowed down to put emphasis n the sounds. After the training, the students participating experienced an increase in their language and reading exams. Test your memory and while you are doing the games, you shall also stimulate your brain, and grow more neurons. Some games that are favored by the older adults are those of remembering faces and names and other images. Spatial intelligence The Rubik s Cube is one very challenging game that will not only stimulate your sense of space (what goes where) and foresight (what to move first), it will also force your sense of logic (why should I move this side first? Participants saw a sequence of squares appearing one after the other on the computer every 3 seconds. The goal was to decide whether the currently-seen square was at the same position as the one somewhere in the sequence. Was it the same as the one two or more positions ago? At the same time, participants heard spoken letters and their task was the same as the one in the visual form, only this time it was spoken (in audio). Neurons It had been long established by science that neurons (nerve cells) are unique in that they will atrophy and die if they do not receive stimulations (either electrical or chemical) from their neighboring cells. Conversely, if these neurons are stimulated (by way of new sensations, new knowledge, and new experiences) they develop new neural connections between themselves. When a child is diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), parents can have medications for their kids. However, there are studies showing that children who gets medication may also develop a calm behaviour, but showed no improvement in their relationships with peers or grades. Cognitive brain training as a therapy for ADHD sufferers, could actually increase focus and short term memory, according to a research performed by Rosemary Tannock of University of Toronto and Susan Gathercole of the University of Durham in England. If you are into fictional books, try reading some creative non-fiction articles. Drawing. Another simple practice which would help in developing your right part of the brain association with visualization. Getting into brain games would not only increase your intelligence, but also research showed that it could improve memory, mood and focus.
