Cultural Studies for Better Brains

Teacher Insights

The latest from techno-medical research is that involvement in cultural activities stimulates and peps up the brain. One such activity is an avid interest taken in languages. Language forges relations with inter-cultural groups and helps us to learn more, collect data, compare it and arrive at conclusions. The effect of culture on brain activity and development revolves round the brain’s capability to assimilate various aspects of culture, collect and store data. What’s stimulating is the brain’s power to use different mechanisms to arrive at inferences and learn the differences. This coordinated action helps the brain’s capacity to support various learning processes with the help of language as a tool. A study into the subject was initiated by Dr Arnon Lotem of Tel Aviv University.
