Researches

  •  
  • There are numerous studies on the effects of usage of the abacus. They clearly proved that this ancient calculator is a modern mental tool. Let’s see how the abacus affects children’s inteligence.

  • The researches were conducted at eminent universities in Europe and Africa (University of Manchester, University of Khartoum, University of Ulster), covering 3185 children aged 7-11 years, and it has been proved that the IQ in children who were part of the abacus mental arithmetic was higher by 7.11 points as opposed to children who did not participate in the program.

How to brain works?

  • In order to properly present all the benefits of our program, it is necessary to first understand how the brain works. The basic task of the brain is to collect and process information, and then give answers by sending specific instructions to our body. The brain consists of two halves – left and right hemisphere. Each hemisphere controls the “opposite” side of our body, so the right hemisphere is in charge of our left side and processes what we see in the left eye, while the left hemisphere controls the right side and processes the right eye view. Both hemispheres are apparently identical, but the differences are present in their functions.

  • The brain function theory was discovered by neuropsychologist Roger Sperry (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Wolcott_Sperry) who received the Nobel Prize for this discovery. The Sperry was observing the brain activity of the patient in whom the bridges between the right and left hemispheres were removed  surgically. By observing, he noticed that if the images and words come from the left, the patient cannot explain them because of the lack of the connections between the two functionally different parts of the brain. This proves that the left and right hemisphere have certain functions, but also that they complement one another.

  • So we can say with certainty that our speech is controlled by the left half of the brain, while for the visual and spatial recognition the right half is responsible. However, both hemispheres work together in collaborating with the most significant brain operations such as judging.
