Harnessing neuroplasticity through brain exercises to improve learning ability and academic achievement in young children
The structure and function of the human brain are fundamentally shaped after birth by stimulation from the environment. The greater extent of this post-natal neuroplasticity distinguishes humans from all other animals. Computer technology and internet-based delivery make it possible to harness this neuroplasticity and promote development in young children of cognitive skills essential for learning and function in the 21st century. Data from thousands of school children demonstrate effectiveness and ability to scale at population levels at low cost.
