Brain training exercises are a system of highly targeted exercises used to improve your brain’s cognitive skills. Research has identified cognitive skills as the root source of learning, thinking, processing and handling any information.
The cognitive skills describe our brain’s inherent capabilities to think, to learn, to process and to handle any kind of information. Typical cognitive skills, among others, are attention, processing speed, short-, working and long term memory, but also higher, more complex functions like decision making and organisational skills. Thanks to “brain plasticity”, the cognitive skills can actually be trained and improved.
For centuries science considered that the human intelligence, that our IQ was supposed to be fixed at the end of our late childhood / teenager age. It was thought that our brains were “hardwired”. This old myth has been debunked once and for all. Today exists a perfect consensus in the scientific community that the brain is actually malleable, that the brain is so-called “plastic”. “Brain plasticity” or “neuroplasticity” defines the brain’s inherent capability to change and to improve at any age!
Neuroscience has proven that brain training can at any age effectively strengthen the individual’s cognitive skills like attention and concentration, memory or comprehension speed.. Therefore your capacity to think, to learn, to process and handle any kind of information becomes easier, faster and better. We learn faster and more effectively, we remember more and longer, we are more organised and we take better decisions.
