Our brains are lazy, and some people learn quicker than others. An app helps children with dyslexia.
Perceiving new situations often poses challenges for people within the autism spectrum.
Now, following a 30-person study, a research team in Tel Aviv has evaluated a new method of learning. On the first day, participants were asked to study a visual task in depth.
Instead of simply repeating the task, on the following days examinees were exposed to the visual stimulus for a few seconds at a time.
The process improved performance by 20-25%. This matches the gains made by repetition, but in significantly less time, and reduces overstimulation.
Where the latter is concerned, the effects can be alleviated by this chair.
