Are You a Good Candidate for Our Program?
There are many reasons why residents of Clearwater seek to improve their cognitive abilities. Some want to feel sharper throughout the day or improve their memory. Others may have suffered from a traumatic brain injury or are currently suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Regardless of your why, brain fitness is just as necessary as physical health. Throughout our lives, we grow new brain cells, and practicing mental effort will stimulate this growth. If any of this sounds relevant to you, take the online test to find out how you’re performing, cognitively.
Until more recent research findings, scientists believed the brain was “hard-wired” and that if you experienced brain disease or damaged cells through trauma, there was no way to get them back. Today we know that this isn’t true. The brain can restructure based on usage and experience.
Neuroplasticity explains your brain’s ability to rewire itself, and this can happen for a few different reasons. For example, various studies have shown a structural change in the mind for individuals who learn a second language. People that speak two languages have more grey matter density and white matter integrity. You can also find similar structural changes in people that play a musical instrument. Musician’s auditory complex can reorganize through years of experience. This skill allows them to hear sound more readily than someone who doesn’t play an instrument.
