What is Brain Training?
Gifted Brain Studios offers research-proven specific brain training therapy that is believed to improve the resolution and efficiency of an individual’s internal brain clock and temporal processing. In turn, it is hypothesized that this results in more efficient brain connectivity, communication, and synchronization via increased integrity of the brain's white matter tract communication system, producing more efficient communication between critical brain networks. In particular, research and theory suggests that this type of brain training increases the efficacy of the parietal-frontal brain network, the brain network most associated with general intellectual functioning, working memory, controlled attention, and executive functions.
The primary conclusions from the detailed scientific explanation are:
The diversity of performance domains positively impacted is due to improving the function of crucial brain-based domain-general neurocognitive mechanisms.
The effect appears to be the result of increased efficiency and synchronization of communication between the primary brain structures that comprise the functional brain networks involved in performing both the cognitive and motor demands of training.
Brain training may be improving brain network communication, especially within the major brain networks at the core of the P-FIT (parietal-fontal integration) model of general intelligence. Training may be improving the efficiency of the parietal-frontal brain network which is critical to general intellectual functioning, working memory, controlled attention, and overall cognitive efficiency.
One of the most important training outcomes (but not the only outcome) is improved focus via increased efficiency of the attentional control system (ACS) that maintains goal related information active in working memory in the presence of internal (mind wandering) and external distractions. Improvement in efficiency of executive functions and working memory results in more efficient complex cognitive processing and learning.
