FNEC Parent Workshop Special Edition: The Neuroscience of Play
The Neuroscience of Play
"What effect does play have on the brain? How does it all work? Play is now being studied by researchers all over the world. We now know that play promotes development in all parts of the brain particularly in the areas of the brain responsible for problem solving, getting along with others and, very importantly, emotional well-being. This session will look more deeply into the neuroscience of play to better understand its importance in the development of the whole child. Perhaps then we can relax and let our children and ourselves experience play not as a luxury but as an essential part of our human experience."
