    Happy New Year and Thanks for sharing these fantastic &Useful videos.
    I’ m Portuguese, and I’ve been doing Cognitive Training with People with dementia.
    Since four weeks until now, I’ve been using Bricks like LEGOS as a Useful & Beautiful Tool, and I’m really Happy with Daily Results on Elder Cognitive & Emotional Health. I really perceived an improvement of their Quality of Life.
    When People are Working with Bricks on LEGOS base or platform, their Attention (focus) and other Cognitive Functions are Improved, Including Working Memory – although here the results are still shy by now… But I believe in the important impact of this LEGOs Tool in Working Memory and in Hippocampus, after daily work in four months.
    It’ s fantastic see the Benefits on Motor Execution Skills, on Recognition, And Mainly on Social and Family Interaction, through, using Bricks/ Legos, that also Improve Language and talk skills of Elder People with Dementia (s) until phase 2 (moderate).
    Have a great 2020 year!
    Thanks!
