By DAVID M. BARBARA-BANCHET and BRENT BURROUGH, Associated PressScientists have long known that when people have a problem, their brains perform better when they can “play” the problem.
A new study shows that’s exactly the same thing when they have a mental illness.
The brain is like a chessboard that gets bigger when a chess player moves more pieces, researchers say.
So when you’re playing a game of chess, your brain’s already getting bigger.
But that’s only because your brain is already playing chess.
You don’t have to make any moves to get a larger brain.
When you have a brain injury, it can get larger.
But your brain doesn’t have enough space in the brain for all the chess pieces, so it can’t move as quickly.
When the brain injury is severe, it takes a huge toll on your brain.
The researchers used data from more than 5,500 adults over five years to measure how their brains performed after they suffered brain injury.
They also looked at how much time their brains spent in different states of brain activation.
The brains of people who had experienced brain injury showed reduced activity in certain areas of the brain, such as the hippocampus, which is involved in learning and memory.
They had fewer connections between neurons in the frontal lobes, areas of our brains involved in higher order thinking and higher order emotion.
People who suffered brain damage were also more likely to experience hallucinations and auditory hallucinations, a form of mental illness that can cause people to believe they’re hearing things or seeing things that aren’t there.
Researchers found these brain changes were the same for all people who experienced brain injuries, regardless of their diagnosis.
What’s more, there was no difference between the people who suffered injuries in the right and left frontal lobys, the researchers said.
The study, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, suggests the same brain changes can happen when a person has an emotional disorder, like depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or anxiety disorder.
The findings could help doctors identify which patients are most likely to benefit from therapy.
But they are also important for people who suffer from chronic mental illnesses, such for example, people with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease or autism spectrum disorder.
