Neurobics are mental exercises, that claim to enhance the brain's performance. It is presumed that unusual sensory stimulation and activities like non-routine actions and thoughts, produce more of such chemicals of the neurobiology system of body that encourage growth of new dendrites and neurons in the brain. Routine actions become so automatic to the individual that most of actions are done largely unconsciously. Such automated or unconscious actions require less activity in the brain, and exercise it less. With the help of neurobics exercises, it is claimed that one can stimulate the brain. An example of a neurobic exercise is to carry out a routine action such as dialing a phone number or brushing your teeth with your non-dominant hand, or performing a series of tasks with you eyes closed.< Other neurobiologists suggest that neurobics can slow aging of the brain.
“Neurobics as developed by Dr.Lawrence C. Katz and Manning Rubin is based upon solid scientific evidence that novel activities and exercises using all your senses can enhance the production of growth factors that strengthen synapses and improve mental fitness including memory."
