The power of neuroplasticity
Imagine your child sitting in a classroom, struggling to remember the instructions his teacher told him two sentences ago. The rest of his friends seem to know just what to do, but simply starting the task seems impossible.
Kids with attention deficits or learning disorders are often held back by their working memory capacity. But, with the help of innovations in cognitive neuroscience, many children are staying more focused, ignoring distractions and feeling less anxious.
Sound amazing? It is! Researchers in neuroplasticity (the idea that the brain can reorganize itself and change) have combined biofeedback with computer game designs to deliver real and lasting benefits to kids (and adults) who need it the most.
But, buyers must beware. A quick google search brings up all kinds of sites promising to change your life with their products. Make sure any programs you’re looking at are peer-reviewed, evidenced-based with published research by leading scientists.
