Cognitive Brain Training Research represents a newly-formed interactive library of resources from world-renowned experts in the field of Neuroscience and Education, focusing on brain training research. The site is unique in that it offers free access to this cognitive research for any and all educators, with such access as easy as signing up on the homepage for instant exposure to data compiled by Yale University and the renowned Bruce Wexler. The information as obtained by Cognitive Brain Training Research has already proven invaluable to those educators in the never-ending struggle to combat ADHD and Autism.
Through the no-cost educator access on Cognitive Brain Training Research’s site, visitors can learn from the experts how Neuroscience and cognitive research is affecting classroom instruction, how executive function affects learning and how the latest research on Neuroplasticity impacts learning disabilities such as Autism and ADHD. The research library is free for educators to provide what Cognitive Brain Training Research representatives call “reliable resources” that help provide information on how Neuroscience and cognitive research give the “tools needed to improve student achievement and behavior.”
Further, with advancements in the field of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience applying “exciting implications” for the 21st century student, many problems seen in the classroom today such as lack of attention or memory are being traced back to core cognitive deficits. As such, groundbreaking research from Yale, the NIH and other world-renowned institutions is being utilized to better identify and treat these deficits like never before.
The research available for access through http://www.CognitiveBrainTrainingResearch.org comes in the form of case studies, exhibiting the use of Neuroscience in today’s classrooms; videos, which allow for access to a video library of lectures on how Neuroscience is affecting students’ learning and resource links, which connect to the latest research in Neuroscience and studies that affect how children learn.
Amongst the myriad of specific applications being implemented to combat such deficits as ADHD and Autism is the highly effective ACTIVATE™ “cognitive brain training” platform, an innovative brain games program developed by brilliant Neuroscientists in an attempt to help young students make amazing gains in academic skills. This is achieved through “measurably strengthening” the children’s neurocognitive functions via combining computer cognitive training software and physical exercises while dramatically improving working memory, self-control, sustained attention, cognitive flexibility and other executive function skills.
Some of the topics covered under the no-cost research access area of Cognitive Brain Training Research’s site include an Introduction to Neuroplasticity, Harnessing Neuroplasticity for Education, Cross Training for the Brain, Children and Cognitive Levels, Inattention in Elementary Schools and Low Graduation Rates, Physical Exercise and Implementation and Q&A sessions with Dr. Bruce Wexler.
