Commit-yourself-to-lifelong-learningThe results were particularly strong in correlation with those who receive training in reasoning and processing speed. The study suggests we should continue to pursue cognitive training as an intervention that might help maintain the mental abilities of older people so they can remain independent and active in their communities. This study proves it´s never too late to improve your cognitive abilities.

The BRAIN Initiative Will Revolutionize our Understanding of the Human Brain

President Obama announced a new research initiative starting at $100 million dollars to fund the new Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative that will revolutionize our understanding of the human brain.

Just like the Human Genome Project has advanced the biomedical field by leaps and bounds, the BRAIN Initiative plans to map out the entire human brain.

This could lead us to find cures for brain based diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Tourette’s, Cerebral Palsy or Traumatic Brain Injury.

It will also provide more information to advance programs that correct learning and cognitive disabilities such as dyslexia, ADHD, Autism and Neurodevelopmental Delays.

As a center that specializes in correcting learning difficulties by training the brain, we have seen how new research change the lives of struggling children.

If your child is struggling in school, and tutoring hasn’t helped, you should consult with a specialist and find out what is the real problem behind his difficulties.

If you live in San Antonio, and your child is struggling, call (210) 495-2626 or visit www.learningfoundations.com/parents to attend a Free Seminar on training the brain to correct learning and attention difficulties.

How to Make Learning Easier – The Science Behind Dyslexia

How to Make Learning Easier – The Science Behind Dyslexia

Medical studies on the brain have shown that people with dyslexia process information differently and activate different parts of the brain when they use language.  In most cases dyslexia is an inherited trait, and the easiest way to find out if your child is dyslexic is if you, or anyone in the family has reading problems.  In the past there was a lot less information about dyslexia, so most adults who have it were probably never diagnosed.  But that does not mean it isn’t there!

Get your child tested for dyslexia if you detect any problems with reading, spelling, rote memory or auditory processing.
