IntroductionDo brainteasers or computer games have a positive impact on brain activity?
The answer is a resounding "yes." For the last fifteen years we have known that the brain is elastic and it remains so until late in life. Its structure develops constantly as a reaction to your experiences. The more your brain is stimulated, the better your mental condition will be.An active brain is a better brain.
Proverbial wisdom says "a healthy mind in a healthy body." So you are in control of at least part of this equation. Tests have shown that physical exertion stimulates neurogenesis: those who exercise make significantly more brain cells, which are also granted a longer life. More brain cells ensure better brainpower and better long-term memory.Brain sport at its best.
This book offers a huge variety of puzzles that will exercise your brain. The puzzles test logical insight, the ability to concentrate, and memory and knowledge. Puzzle solving will not give you a super brain, but you willl learn kills for remembering things better and give certain brain activities an extra boost. If you can't solve certain puzzles, don't look up the answers—just try again later. Finding the solutioin is much more fun than knowing the solution.
