How does the Play state affect the brain?

Studies show the direct correlation between brain development and Play (Neuroscience, Play, and Child Development; Frost, Joe L) and it’s fundamental necessity for optimal functioning. Play is so important to child development that it has been recognized by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child (Pediatircs, January 2007, Volume 119/Issue 1).

“Playful behavior appears to have positive effects on the brain and on a child’s ability to learn. In fact, play may function as an important, if not crucial, mode for learning.” – Gwen Dewar, Ph.D.
