Friday October 7, 2016 at 18.00, the Patrizio Paoletti Foundation inaugurates in Assisi the new Neuroscientific Research Laboratories of the Institute for Research in Neuroscience, Education and Didactics.
Sponsored by the Ministry of Health, the event represents an important milestone for the Foundation’s research activity which, after more than 15 years of investigating the mechanisms that allow for cognitive improvement and physical and emotional well-being in humans, expands and evolves.
Speakers at the inauguration include Patrizio Paoletti, President of the Foundation, Moshe Bar, Director of the Gonda Brain Research Center at Bar Ilan University (Israel), Tal Dotan Ben-Soussan, Director of the Department of Neuroscientific Research at the Patrizio Paoletti Foundation.
Studying the brain is one of the most difficult and important challenges we face today. About 100 billion neurons connect and reorganise themselves continuously in our brains (neuroplasticity), from the day we are born until the end of our lives. The way in which these extraordinary processes take place determines the quality of our lives and our ability to foresee the future.
The more we know about the mechanisms underlying its functioning, the more we can create tools and techniques to invest in man’s infinite potential, updating educational and teaching methods, directing our best resources towards improvement and change.
This has been the Paoletti Foundation’s commitment since its inception, a research path full of results achieved in collaboration with universities and research institutes around the world. With the inauguration of the new neuroscience laboratories, the commitment is renewed with increasingly advanced methodologies and investigative techniques.
The work carried out in the laboratories today aims to discover the mechanisms that allow cognitive improvement and physical and emotional well-being, both in healthy people and in people in a state of temporary or long-term difficulty.
Understanding the neurological mechanisms underlying non-productive and debilitating states helps guide people in choosing functional and appropriate training paradigms. In recent years, the Paoletti Foundation research team has investigated the effects of different training to promote human development and prevent neurodegenerative states, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or similar pathologies.
One paradigm tested with excellent results, and also appreciated in the academic field, is the Quadrato Motor Training technique, a training that involves motor coordination and focused attention of the individual. Discover the research protocols carried out and active
