What is brain fitness?
Why is it important to have a fit brain?
Brain fitness influences every aspect of our lives. In a young student attending school, brain fitness influences everything from motivation for school, to the speed taken to scan or write a page of words, to the ability to pay attention and understand what the teacher is saying and to problem solve. In a working adult, brain fitness helps us to remember vital information for work, to process information quickly, manage our moods and keep us in our prime during work. In an aging senior, brain fitness helps us maintain balance and agility, drive safely on the roads and gives us mental sharpness to keep up with our social circles and the younger generation. A fit brain means an intelligent brain! It helps us accelerate learning in a young student, perform at our best as a working adult and slow mental decline in a senior individual.
How is brain fitness linked to intelligence?
Scientists working on mapping human intelligence have recently discovered that intelligence does not reside in any one part of our brain. Instead, the brain architecture for both human general intelligence (IQ) and emotional intelligence (EQ) involves a network of interconnections among a few critical brain areas, namely attention & working memory, language, visual and body perception. When we build brain fitness in these areas, we are strengthening the brain networks that make us more intelligent! At BrainFit Studio, these areas are precisely the focus points in our training programmes. We know that changes in these areas can lead to improvements in learning capabilities, performance, behaviors and IQ scores.
Who can benefit from brain fitness training?
Everyone from a young child to an older individual. Contrary to what people used to believe, brain plasticity (changeability) is not limited to children, but is possible at any age. With proper brain training protocols, everyone can benefit from brain fitness training, although improvements are more easily achieved in a child because a young brain changes more rapidly with less effort.
Can brain fitness training benefit individuals with learning difficulties/ disabilities?
Can brain fitness training benefit students already doing well in school?
Yes, BrainFit Studio has helped train many average and even gifted students. Just as physical fitness training can benefit everyone, from the person with poor fitness levels to the top athlete, everyone can benefit from brain fitness training. An average or even top student can still be challenged to perform at an even more superior mental state.
