This month I had the pleasure of speaking with Charlotte Davies, founder of a company called Fit-2-Learn, fierce researcher, and educationalist in England. In the first few moments of speaking with Charlotte, it was clear that she had a deep passion for helping people, especially children, reach their cognitive potential.
Short-term memory is the type of memory that holds onto information while we process it.
For example, while reading, we need to be able to remember the information at the beginning of a sentence in order to make sense of it once we get to the end.
Simply put, bone conduction is the process by which we perceive sound through bones in the skull.
The idea that the brain is a static organ is long forgotten. We now know that the brain is plastic, which means that it can change and grow.
Given what we know about the brain and its ability to change, there’s no question that exercise for your brain is just as important as exercise for your muscles. In fact, when exercised, your brain will react like a muscle and become stronger (don’t worry, your head won’t grow larger, just your brain cells!).
