NEUROANDRAGOGY, tells of new advances in brain research. Much of this new research confirms what teachers of adults have been saying for years. A very good example of this is that children and adults do not learn in the same way. The brain of the child does not reach new brain function and true maturity until age 21 and older. This is clearly seen when youths use their emotions to decide and not their executive brain as adults do.
NEUROANDRAGOGY includes research that confirms ways adults can improve their IQ and sharpen their minds even into old age. This is possible because “brain plasticity” still occurs late in life. Even more interesting is the fact that we may even be able to experience neurogenesis (new brain cellgrowth) through life if we continue to learn new things and live within a brain stimulating environment.
NEUROANDRAGOGY also makes the case for a possible delay of Alzheimer’s disease by the activity of new learning (music, a new language, a new town etc.) All this contributes to good brain health which improves on life itself.
