Bright and artlike = FUN.
People who have fun using a technique will tend to incorporate it into their day-to-day life.
Consistent use of a technique known to enhance memory, spark creativity, and most importantly ENGAGE the user may result in better thinking by retraining the damaged brain to use different pathways.
That’s my unproven theory. If you don’t believe me, run empirical studies and disprove my theory. When you design those studies, please include another technique which you think may work better.
I’ve been doing my own studies on myself for several years to determine what might work best for a person with dementia to jump start the process of using new and better ways of thinking in a “damaged” brain. If you have something that can be empirically demonstrated to work better than what I have proposed, I have a very strong PERSONAL stake in seeing your findings so I can change what I do.
At any rate, this is my theory (at least until the end of the day). And, if you have something better, please tell us as there is much at stake.
