Report calls for wide classroom-based adoption of ten brain fitness programs designed to improve foundational executive functions

__________

Nation­al Non­prof­it Releas­es Report Call­ing for Brain Fit­ness Inter­ven­tions in All U.S. Schools (press release):

Brain­Fu­tures released a report today that makes a clear case for inte­grat­ing proven brain fit­ness pro­grams into all U.S. class­rooms. Over a decade of research has shown that evi­dence-based pro­grams can improve stu­dents’ exec­u­tive func­tion skills and proso­cial behav­iors, which are more accu­rate pre­dic­tors of aca­d­e­m­ic readi­ness and life suc­cess than IQ or any oth­er per­for­mance mark­ers.

New book in Spanish — El Cerebro que Cura: Descubre la mejor forma de mantener un cerebro sano como fuente de salud

Para ten­er una vida ple­na y feliz, lo más impor­tante es ten­er un cere­bro sano. Esta es la premisa que defien­den los autores: cómo una mente sana puede dar lugar a un cuer­po igual­mente salud­able.

A través de sus estu­dios e inves­ti­ga­ciones, los autores pre­tenden demostrar que lle­var a cabo un patrón con­cre­to de activi­dad cere­bral, nos per­mite resi­s­tir mejor las enfer­medades y puede inclu­so ayu­darnos a vivir más.

En El cere­bro que cura, nos enseñan por qué este órgano tan impor­tante nos ayu­da a man­ten­er­nos sanos y qué podemos hac­er para con­seguir que fun­cione a pleno rendimien­to. La nutri­ción, el sueño, el ejer­ci­cio o la social­ización son parte de los pilares fun­da­men­tales para log­ar una mente, un cuer­po y un alma más sanos.
