Do you know that a child’s brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three—producing more than a million neural connections each second. However, it continues to grow even after child is grwon up.
The development of the brain is influenced by many factors, including a child’s relationships, experiences and environment. Learn more about the crucial role you can play in building child's brain, get your questions answered, and find some fun "brain-building" activities to share with children.
Neuroscientists have well established that the brain has a highly robust and well-developed capacity to change in response to environmental demands, a process called plasticity. This involves creating and strengthening some neuronal connections and weakening or eliminating others. The degree of modification depends on the type of learning that takes place, with long-term learning leading to more profound modification. It also depends on the period of learning, with infants experiencing extraordinary growth of new synapses. But a profound message is that plasticity is a core feature of the brain throughout life.
There are optimal or "sensitive periods" during which particular types of learning are most effective, despite this lifetime plasticity. For sensory stimuli such as speech sounds, and for certain emotional and cognitive experiences such as language exposure, there are relatively tight and early sensitive periods. Other skills, such as vocabulary acquisition, do not pass through tight sensitive periods and can be learned equally well at any time over the lifespan.
Managing one?s emotions is one of the key skills of being an effective learner; self-regulation is one of the most important behavioural and emotional skills that children and older people need in their social environments. Emotions direct (or disrupt) psychological processes, such as the ability to focus attention, solve problems, and support relationships. Neuroscience, drawing on cognitive psychology and child development research, starts to identify critical brain regions whose activity and development are directly related to self-control.
Numeracy, like literacy, is created in the brain through the synergy of biology and experience. Just as certain brain structures are designed through evolution for language, there are analogous structures for the quantitative sense. And, also as with language, genetically-defined brain structures alone cannot support mathematics as they need to be co-ordinated with those supplementary neural circuits not specifically destined for this task but shaped by experience to do so.
The brain undergoes extensive changes during puberty -- precisely the time when the raging hormones often blamed for teen behavior begin to wreak havoc. It's long been known that the architecture of the brain is largely set in place during the first few years of life. But with the aid of new technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), scientists are mapping changes in pre-teen and teenage brains and finding evidence that remarkable growth and change continue for decades.
This second wave -- occurring roughly between ages 10 and 13 -- is quickly followed by a process in which the brain prunes and organizes its neural pathways. "In many ways, it's the most tumultuous time of brain development since coming out of the womb,"
is used to assess potential, personality and inclination of the student. This can be administered for the students from early age till the person is in his working age. However, the techniques used at each age bracket differs from each other. The process can be used for various purposes like development, career exploration, social behaviour, relationship and other applications. In students, it is most effective in career choice and career development.
We use the following two main tools –
Dermatoglyphics is now an established technique for estimating abilities and multiple intelligence. It uses fingerprints to analyse various aspects of an individual. Since younger students do not have crystalized intelligence, they may not be able to answer questions in a psychometric test appropriately. To avoid any such mistakes it is reliable to take help of their fingerprints and interpret them.
PRISM Brain Mapping is a tool used in 50 countries across the globe. It uses advanced technique of Neuro Science which was not available when today’s major psychometric tools were developed. Modern neuroscience rests on the assumption that our thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and behaviours emerge from electrical and chemical communication between brain cells. It is these very same neuroscientific discoveries that have facilitated the development of the PRISM Brain Mapping.

With the help of the above techniques our experts will help students choose the right career for their bright future. Many students are still falling prey to Med-Engg-Science or CA-CS-MBA mind set. Running after popular streams of education is not only loss-making but also harmful in the long-term. At the end it creates an individual who is robbed of self-esteem and happiness or sometimes, normal mind. Many have dissatisfaction or stunted development.
One may also complete our Career Mentor Certification to become a career counselor for others.
