A research report released this week shows some interesting and powerful brain connections that are absolutely great news. The study was focused on simple forms of brain stimulation and brain exercises as well as their link to math skills and the results from the study were quite profound.
The researchers at the heart of the study claim that with just a week’s worth of brain stimulating exercises a patient was very likely to see an increase in cognitive and brain function improvements as long as 6 months from the time of exercise. This is a very big deal because researchers have always known that increased brain activity lead to increased brain ability, but now they know that the effects can actually last for a very long time as well.
Doctors are hopeful that this could likely be used in the future to help develop better education practices as well as improved mental health treatment. Many researchers are also hopeful that this will eventually be applied as a study to children and infant development so that parents can begin to educate their children early on with mental stimulation and simple forms of brain exercise.
