Music is important for the development and relationship of the child

Recent studies by psychologists have shown that playing music with children and even just listening to music contribute to the development of the children’s brain. At the same time, other studies have shown that if parents listen to music with their children, sing songs or dance, this positively affects the relationship between them.

In other words, music has many advantages for children. Let’s consider them in more detail.

The influence of music on the development of the children’s brain

Studies in which various neuroimaging techniques have been used have shown that teaching children music at an early age (up to 7 years) causes physical changes in the structure and functions of the brain.

In one of these studies, it was found that when playing music in the corpus callosum (the area in the central part of the brain responsible for coordination between the hemispheres), the amount of white matter increases. In other words, the number of neural connections between the hemispheres increases. Continue reading

The benefits of daytime sleep for students

Ask any parents if daytime sleep is good for your child. The answer will be unequivocal – yes. Daytime sleep improves mood, restores the child’s energy, improves his academic performance. Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California (USA) conducted a study that fully confirmed such allegations of parents.

It showed that school-age children who sleep 30-60 minutes in the afternoon are happier, better able to control themselves and have fewer problems with behavior. These children also have a higher level of IQ and higher school performance.

The study involved more than 3,000 children aged 10-12 years – students in grades 4-6. As a result, the relationship between daytime sleep and a sense of happiness, self-control and perseverance was revealed. One of the initiators of the study, neuroscientist Adrian Rein, said: “It has been found that children who sleep during the day experience fewer problems with behavior and have a higher level of IQ. The latter was especially evident in sixth graders. Particularly strong is the effect of daytime sleep on the school performance of children. ” Continue reading

The impact of new technologies on the learning process

As you know, the perception of each person has its own individual characteristics. At the same time, it is common for everyone that we cognize the world with the help of feelings: hearing, sight, smell, touch, etc.

From a physiological point of view, each channel of perception works separately. We hear with our ears, see with our eyes, and touch with our skin. However, some people do not feel at all – this phenomenon is called anesthesia. If a person simultaneously experiences several sensations, this is called synesthesia.

Synaesthetes – people who are capable of synesthesia – have a greater, compared with others, and unique sensory experience. In the world, the number of such people is very small. However, in some cases, almost every one of us experiences something similar. We simultaneously use several channels of perception in the communication process, when our brain interprets various symbols (for example, pictures or emoticons in messages) or determines the meaning of the words that we hear from the interlocutor or choose in order to convey our thoughts to the interlocutor.
