Memory loss results when amyloid plaque builds up in the brain and destroys synapse connections between neurons. To improve memory, synapse connections must be strengthened. Brainpaths fingertip tracing exercises use Braille like textures that indent into fingertip pads, touching 3000 mechanoreceptors under the skin of each fingertip (discovered by Johns Hopkins Krieger Brain Institute in 1997).
Brainpaths Daily Exercise: repeatedly tracing textures on both sides of the Brainpaths Medical Devices, using strong strokes, touches 3000 mechanoreceptors in each fingertip, providing a superhighway to the sensory cortex of the brain, firing/wiring neurons and strengthening synapse connections, improving memory and brain function.
A major difference between Brainpaths and Braille (Braille providing a method and apparatus for the blind to read) is:
Brainpaths repeatedly traces sharp textures with up to ten fingers simultaneously, while Braille traces paper dots one time with one finger, using a coded format.
Brainpaths and Braille, both fire and wire neurons in the brain to strengthen synapse connections.
