ART SCIENCE COGNITION: Metaphor Building

ART SCIENCE COMPLEX has originated and designed exercises using drawing and writing to promote latent ability within the brain. Metaphorical thinking promotes both neuroplasticity and "on demand "adult neurogenesis, the mature brain's ability to quickly adapt to novel information and experiential, conceptually driven learning--segue to the generation of new neurons in the hippocampal region, as well their successful integration into the preexisting neuronal network.
