Keyboarding proves how memory, motor skills, and language work seamlessly together to produce this cognitively complex output of quick and accurate touch typing.

eReflect, designer of Ultimate Typing™, a program that teaches people how to touch type with the right technique, explains the benefits of touch typing on memory in a new blog post.

eReflect's Ultimate Typing™ has been named one of the best typing programs by Top Ten Reviews and other organizations. In this post, the editor explains how people that learn to type establish a robust multi-sensory skill that engages memory, motor skills, linguistic knowledge, and other communication faculties of the brain. The single task of touch typing creates neural pathways that improve brain function in other areas.

The mere fact that a person's hands and fingers develop muscle memory, a memory that matches brain stimuli with hand movement, is an exceptional achievement in its own right, the editor notes.

“Through repetitive practice you allow muscle memory consolidation; that is, you allow your fingers and hands to remember and recall in a matter of milliseconds where to go next. This happens so smoothly and efficiently for people who type at more than 75 words per minute that the process is rather astonishing to watch – their fingers move so quickly and accurately, it’s almost as if they’re moving by themselves!”

For the learn to type software designer, touch typing constitutes one of the most remarkable technical skills people can master today. eReflect reminds readers, though, that muscle memory is just like any other type of memory, in that it can always be improved upon. Keyboarding proves how memory, motor skills, and language work seamlessly together to produce this cognitively complex output of quick and accurate touch typing.

Touch typing is proof that the brain is malleable and open to new skill learning. Muscle memory can be achieved very quickly, and once learned, is never forgotten. With a little practice anyone can improve their touch typing skills, and train their linguistic, muscle and motor memory all at once and at the same time. Muscle memory is but one aspect of memory that touch typing helps strengthen and keep in tip-top shape.

eReflect is the designer of Ultimate Typing™ , a cloud based typing program with several recent laudatory typing software reviews.
