Cognitive Benefits Of Brain Development Games For Kids

Jan 12th 2015 at 10:52 PM

It is now scientifically established that brain development games have cognitive benefits for kids and their overall personality improvements. Reason is that playing behaviors usually have positive impact on the child brains and enhances its ability to learn things well. Play thus works as a catalyst for the kids and works substantially in the process of improvement of their brains.

Findings from Animal Experiments

Experiment with animals have proved beyond reasonable doubts that play will improve memory and will stimulate substantially the growth of the cerebral cortex and that exactly is the impact of brain games when they are played by the kids. Animal experiment brought out in light the fact that rats that were kept in solitary confinements had lower brain and health development in comparison to those kept in a playful environment full of toys. Rats that lived in stimulating conditions had larger brains than their counterparts.

Games Develop BDNF Secretion

BDNF is essential for the growth of brain cells and brain development games for kids help greater secretion of BDNF and thus higher development of the brains in result. Though the evidences are still based on animal experiments, it could be safely concluded that that impact would be similar on their human counterparts. Increase in the levels of the Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor or BDNF is responsible for the improvement of brains in animals as well as in human beings.

Brain Games Help Academic Improvement

It has been found through prolonged research and experimentation that memory games for kids not only improve their memories and develop their brains but also induce them to pay more attention to their academic studies. Intermittent sessions of play will keep them physically and mentally alert and they will start paying greater attention to their academic studies. Unstructured breaks and involvement in games help this and also as the games are usually based on knowledge base, they also improve the career and IQ of the kid concerned. An example is the Chinese and Japanese schools that offer short brakes to their students after every 50 minutes of studies and these students are some of the best achievers in the world.

Physical V/S Brain Exercise

Usually brain games are designed to give the brain a good bit of exercise so that it will improve in the bargain. Some experts recommend physical exercise for the purpose. There can be no doubt that physical exercise is very good; almost indispensable for good health and anatomic conditions but they will help only general development of the brain. This is because they are not specifically aimed at brain development but overall physical development of the performer. On the other hand the educational games are aimed at developing the knowledge and brain of the kids specifically.

Fact remains that games that are meant to stimulate and improve the brains have good impact on the brain of the kids because they give them a playful environment. At the same time it relieves the parents of the tension of rearing effectively the personality of their loved kids.
