Researchers Discover How Even Short Periods of Training Improve Learning.

Jul 17 2018

neuroplasticityResearchers at the Leibniz-Institutes für Wissensmedien (IWM) and of the Graduate School and Research Network LEAD at the University of Tübingen discovered strengthened neuronal connections between brain regions in adults after only 5 training sessions. The participants performed better in the mathematics tasks and the researchers were able to measure specific structural changes in the brain responsible for the improvement.

It goes without saying that simply practicing mathematical tasks results in improving our ability to calculate. This new research provide valuable insight into the mechanism behind neurocognitive plasticity in adults. Improved knowlege of numerical learning can be used to further develop media based training programs for children and adults with learning disabilities.
