(Vocus/PRWEB) February 23, 2011
The International Brain Education Association (IBREA) announced today that as part of its mission to educate the world about the potential of the brain, it has developed online tests to measure memory, attention, problem solving, spatial reasoning and other brain functions. In addition to helping clinicians diagnose and develop treatments for brain conditions, these Brain Tests allow individuals to assess their own cognitive functions. For practitioners of yoga, meditation and other exercises that promote better health and increased energy, these tests can help measure the cognitive benefits of these practices as well.
While fun and informative for individuals—and a great barometer of how Brain Education, yoga and meditation can boost cognitive function, as well as health and energy—the goal of IBREA is to make the tests available to scientists, educators, and clinicians worldwide to advance Brain Education and apply it for the betterment of humankind. IBREA is currently in the process of developing collaborations with several universities and educational centers.
The online tests can be found at the Brain Test section of IBREA’s official website. They were developed under the scientific guidance of Dr. Elkhonon Goldberg, a world-renowned neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist, and author of The Executive Brain: Frontal Lobes in a Complex World. As someone who has spoken at Brain Education Conferences held by IBREA at the United Nations, and who contributes regularly to its Brain World magazine, his experience has helped to marry the science of brain testing with Brain Education.
All of IBREA’s projects, including the Brain Tests, have been inspired by and are related to Ilchi Lee’s Brain Education method, which was designed by Ilchi lee to help people use ki energy to develop and utilize the cognitive and non-cognitive processes of the brain for creating a successful, happy, and productive life.
