BRAIN BUILDING: PLAYING YOUR WAY TO INTELLIGENCE
In more ways than one, our memories make us. They connect us, tell us who we are, our memories are a crucial aspect of what makes us human. Which means in a way, loss of memory represents loss of self in a very subtle way. Frankly, there are many ‘elderly moments’ where perfectly normal adults have memory gaps. It happens. However, there are also many factors in adulthood that cause abnormal memory problems, including stress, mineral deficiencies in the body, and depression, among others. Is it possible that playing games can help with memory and brain building?
Until recently, it had always been believed that memory declines once a person gets to a certain age. Thanks to the science community, we now know this is far from truth. It has been discovered that with correct methods, you can regrow brain cells (called neurons) in the memory center of the brain. Scientists tell us that this happens in the hippocampus, and it can actually regenerate throughout a person’s life.
Brain Building: Your mind is a muscle
According to modern research, several techniques exist to boost regrowth in this area, which results in memory improvement. Yes, just as physical exercises help muscles to grow, mental exercises aid brain building processes regardless of age! What causes some people to lose their memory and others to improve theirs has something to do with genes, but also has a lot to do with choices.
