Recent Research

Verification of The Effect of Cognitive Training by Dance


In this study, we have developed a rhythmic brain training methods to suit the music.

For this method, it has been verified lyrics accompanied with sound or rhythm are stored easily by the memory, but difficult to remember when without sound or rhythm. It was hypothesized that combining rhythmic music with repeated memory tasks would improve memory performance.

We also verified the correlation between the blood vessel age and athletic ability and cognitive function.

In conclusion, rhythmic brain training tailored to the music, was valid for both motor skills and cognitive function.
