Physical and mental exercise and brain plasticity.


In the past, researchers believed that our brains were fixed. Meaning our brains were as they were and that we could not improve brain functioning etc. However, recent scientific research proves that our brains are plastic in nature. This means we can grow more brain cells and we can strengthen brain cell connections.

Brain plasticity can be enhanced through learning, mental exercise and physical exercise.

Here’s a link to an article which provides more info on this subject.

Did you like the photo of the Nerf howler ball up above? I have recently gotten into this activity. My sister and brother in law from Berkeley, California had recently visited us. My brother in law, Edward, had shown me how to throw the nerf ball. He is a great teacher. I will add a quick video below, which shows me and Edward throwing the nerf ball.
