Cognitive training


The term “cognitive formation” (also referred to as cerebral or neurobiological formation) reflects an assumption that cognitive abilities can be maintained or enhanced by exercising the brain, by analogy with how physical fitness is enhanced by exercising the body.

Environmental enrichment


The environmental enrichment studies how the brain is affected by stimulation of its centers of perception caused by everything that surrounds (including opportunities for social interaction). The brain , in a richer and more stimulating environment, has a greater number of synapses , and the dendrites in which they reside are more complex. This effect is all the more important during the neurodevelopment phase , but still persists to a lesser degree during adulthood. This increase in synapses also generates a greater synaptic activity, which also increases the size and number of cells glial actresses of nerve impulses . The vascularization also increases and thus provides neurons and glial cells with more energy. The neuropile (neurons, glial cells and capillaries combined) thus has more expansion and makes the cerebral cortex thicker. It can also create more neurons (in rodents at least).
