Human brain and abacus rod


How it helped to improve my skills. 

For thousands of years, people have performed mathematical computations using the abacus, a small yet effective tool. But specifically, how does it improve cognition and brain growth?

Using visual and spatial memory is one technique the abacus aids with mental computation. When using an abacus, the user must maintain track of the placement of the beads on the apparatus, which aids in the growth and reinforcement of visual and spatial memory. As the user can "see" the numbers and calculations in their mind rather than depending only on rote memorization, this can help with the capacity to conduct mental calculations.

Using finger movement on the abacus is another method that improves mental computation. It can help to enhance the connections between the fingers, hands, and brain when using an abacus because the user must physically manipulate the beads. As a result, the brain is better able to establish a direct connection between the movement of the fingers and the mathematical calculation being made, which can help with the capacity to conduct calculations mentally.

My journey with the Abacus

Let me give you an idea of how studying the abacus improved my cognitive skills.
I was intrigued when I first learned about the abacus and its ability to enhance mental calculation and brain development. So, I decided to give it a try and see if it could help me improve my skills.

I started by learning the basics of how to use an abacus, including how to move the beads and perform basic calculations. At first, it was a bit challenging and I had to concentrate hard to keep track of the beads and perform the calculations correctly. But with practice, I began to get the hang of it and found that I was able to perform calculations more quickly and accurately.

As I continued to use the abacus, I noticed that my visual and spatial memory had improved significantly. I was able to "see" the numbers and calculations in my mind and perform mental calculations more easily. I also found that my finger movement and dexterity had improved, which helped me to perform calculations even more quickly.

But the most surprising thing was how much my cognitive skills such as problem-solving, logic, and critical thinking had improved. I found that I was able to approach problems in a more systematic and logical way and that I was better able to analyze and solve problems.

Learning the abacus has been a valuable experience for me. It has not only helped me to improve my math skills, but it has also helped me to develop my visual and spatial memory, finger movement, cognitive skills and overall brain development. I highly recommend giving it a try for anyone looking to improve their mathematical abilities and cognitive skills.
