FUNCTIONS OF BRAIN      

Function Of Brain -

How abacus helps in the development of the right   brain - the seat of emotional intelligence and creative learning - 90% of the population is right handed and right limb is connected with the left brain and vice-versa. Hence more and more use of right hand in daily life helps in the development of the left brain but right brain doesn't get developed. Simultaneous use of both hands on abacus help in the development of the right brain thus make whole brain development possible.

Researcher of neuroscience has seen through MRI scan that functions of the two hemispheres are totally different (as shown in the above picture). So whole brain development is required.

The relativity theory introduced in 1916 by Einstein had shocked the science circles. He illustrated the relativity theory as an outcome of idea. He used his right brain to create an amazing journey of thought and used his left-brain to develop a set of mathematical theories to explain the fairyland he saw.

The drawing, composition, lines and model in rough drafts of Picasso were shown the mathematical and geometrical concept.

This proved that there are hidden potentials of science and arts in every brain. The only difference is that both brains are not equally developed, otherwise this will double our network growth progress.

Another important aspect of the right brain is it is the seat of emotional intelligence, which helps, in managing mood and increases productivity.
Exactly what is emotional intelligence? -

• Self-Awareness - Knowing your emotions, recognizing feelings as they occur, and  
   discriminating between them.

• Mood Management - Handling feelings so they're relevant to the current situation and you
   react appropriately.

• Self - Motivation - "Gathering up" your feelings and directing yourself towards a goal, 
   despite self-doubt, inertia, and impulsiveness.

• Empathy - Recognizing feelings in others and tuning into their verbal and nonverbal cues.

• Managing Relationships - Handling interpersonal interaction, conflict resolution, and

Why do we need emotional intelligence? -

Research in brain-based learning suggests that emotional health is fundamental to effective learning. According to a report from the national center for clinical infant programs. The key ingredients for this understanding are :-

• Confidence
• Curiosity
• Internationality
• Self-control
• Relatedness
• Capacity to communicate
• Ability to cooperate

Emotional Intelligence is a master aptitude, a capacity that profoundly affects all other abilities, either facilitating or interfering with them."--Daniel Goldman, emotional intelligence.

The left and right brain hemispheres are connected by a bundle of nerve fibers called the corpus callosum. This cable lets both side of the brain communicate and exchange information. Research also reveals that the female hormone estrogen prompts nerve cells to grow more connections within the brain and between the two hemispheres.

While calculating on abacus, children perform calculations mentally, which is called mental arithmetic. Mental arithmetic is a kind of brain teaser or brain exercise which helps in increasing blood flow in the nerve cells as well as in different glands, which also help in proper and adequate flow of hormones from the glands and there are hormones like estrogen which helps in increasing memory. So, abacus not only helps in the development of the right brain but also develops memory, concentration, etc.

While calculating on the abacus, a virtual mental picture of the abacus is formed in mind. One can use the “virtual abacus” to perform calculations. It is not unusual for a person to handle a series of 5 or more digits numbers in +, -, x, or / operations at highly accelerated speed using the abacus mental math method.
