How does the relationship between actions and habits work on the neuropsychological level
Updated: Aug 27, 2019
In the recent years, neuropsychology has been one of the fastest-developing sciences. Scientists today clearly understand that, as the ancient wisdom states, right actions determine a person’s character, and their life along with it. It’s all about neuroplasticity.
When a person (a child or an adult) performs a certain action for the first time, their brain neurons join in a specifically configured chain. This chain is very thin and unstable. If an action is not repeated, the chain breaks up. With each repetition, the neuron chain is further strengthened. With time it becomes so strong that we can consider it a skill or a habit. I works especially well if the action in question is rewarded with positive emotions, i.e., supported with rewards.
The process of creating strong neuronal bonds is at the foundation of our app’s concept.
Set tasks for your kids, reward them, establish habits and form the child’s character. It’s what will determine his or her life to come.
