What activities make the brain of children work better: expert opinion
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University conducted a large-scale study, with the help of which they were able to prove the benefits of improving reading skills for children's health.
According to academics, this process creates a new white substance, which affects the functioning of the brain.
Experts analyzed the results of tomography of subjects, whose age ranged from 8 to 10 years.
After 100 hours of training, they have improved the quality of white matter, which sends signals to the areas of the brain that are responsible for data processing.
In addition, researchers studied the organ in 72 children after completing a 6-month fast reading course.
Scientists are convinced that the results of a new study will help to invent a method that will improve cognitive abilities in patients with autism and developmental disorders.
