Board games help the brain retain and build cognitive associations well into old age too. One of the primary benefits of playing board games is reducing the risk of cognitive decline, such as that associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Keeping your mind engaged means you are exercising it and building it stronger. A stronger brain has lower risks of losing its power.

  • How the brain works
  • Using right and left brain to create Virtual Reality
The human brain is an amazing and powerful tool. It allows us to learn, see, remember, hear, perceive, understand and create language. All professions have a compelling interest in how the brain works. The brain is the single most important structure in our bodies. As far as we can tell, the brain controls most of human thought and emotion.

Brain Teaser

What the brain ‘hears’

  • Visual language
  • Word Puzzles
  • Word Juztapoz
  • Riddles
  • Brainteasers
A specific part of the brain, the superior temporal gyros, is responsible for translating auditory signals into something the brain “hears.” Mapping how the brain processes sounds like plosives and fricatives could lead to better understanding of conditions such as dyslexia and autism, which involve problems encoding acoustic signals.

Brain Dietary

Traditional Chinese Medicine

  • Qi Gong exercise
  • Chinese herbs
  • Health advice
  • Pulse reading
  • Scalp massage
A healthy mind involves harmony between the brain and spirit. You can enhance brain-spirit harmony with certain nutrients, herbs, food science and acupressure. A TCM practitioner can treat the organ systems and acupuncture points that benefit patterns of disharmony associated with memory, retention, recall, learning, growth, development, aging, trauma and stress
