Activate your brain with 51 Worldwide Games, the world’s largest selection of games on your console.
In recent months, many families have taken the opportunity to spend more time than ever around a board. Board games are on the rise, and surely this rebound, in addition to great moments of family leisure and a bit of nostalgia, have left many more conganes. And more, much more, is what houses the new Nintendo Switch: neither more nor less than the largest collection of games in the world on your console. 51 Worldwide Games is available exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
Board games have something that hooks. We all know that feeling of starting a game to kill time and, suddenly, surprise ourselves asking for revenge and investing the entire afternoon. It is no coincidence: board games have multiple benefits on the brain, which not only make us feel good but can help exercise and keep it fit.
The doctor José Ramón Valdizán, a neurologist at the Montpellier clinic, explains that “training our brain through play favors, thanks to neural plasticity, the creation of new connections and the stimulation of neurotransmitters such as, for example, dopamine, norepinephrine, oxytocin, acetylcholine and serotonin ”. For all this, it happens that, when playing a game “we concentrate, we pay attention, the camaraderie develops, we forget problems and, when we finish, we feel great satisfaction,” he argues.
In the words of dr. Valdizán, it would be something like a “brain gymnastics that we cannot abandon in life”, and, in the same way that one goes to the gym to tone their muscles, you can keep your brain active with activities such as board games. They are recommended at any time, but especially in old age. According to Valdizán, “except in the case of brain injuries, there is no forgetting, so when we learn something it is stored forever in certain structures, such as the hippocampus and the frontal cortex until a conjunctural stimulus reminds us.” That is why there are things that, no matter how long we go without doing them, are engraved in our memory in childhood and are never forgotten, as if you eat a twenty count.
