Right and left brain memory games have their roots in Japan, where Dr. Makato Shichida made popular what became know as "Right Brain Education". On any given day in his 400+ Shichida Child Academies you'll find dozens of children playing right brain games and doing amazing things like remembering up to 1,000 objects in sequential order and reading (or more appropriately, flashing through) a 500 page book and recalling enough to score highly on a comprehension test. There's a lot more taught at his academies but I think you'll agree there's something special in play there.
Most of these types of right brain games and exercises are simple to learn but can quickly increase creativity, rapid thought processes, greater concentration and memory, musical aptitude and intuition.
Let's first acquaint ourselves with left and right brain function. When the functions of the right brain are well developed and integrated with left brain functions, we find a genius mind developing. That's what we'll discuss next.
When right brain senses are well developed and integrated with left brain functions, tremendous abilities can manifest.
Right and Left Brain Functions
If you've read our section about the characteristics of the right and left brain, you'll know that, in short, the left hemisphere of the brain learns in a systematic, logical, orderly manner through repetition, rules and fact-proving (the way most American schools teach). The right hemisphere of the brain learns intuitively by absorbing and understanding photographic, tactile and sound images in fractions of a second. The right brain has also been referred to as the "image brain." When right brain games, accelerated learning lessons and exercises contain elements that stimulate and develop both right and left brain functions, we have complete whole brain learning taking place. See our best-selling right brain left brain learning games at the right.
Right and Left Brain Senses
Did you know we have more than five senses? Knowing what they are will clue you in to types of games you'll find on this site and the tremendous potential you and your children naturally have. According to Dr. Shichida and others in the field of right left brain research and development:
Albert Einstein was a right brain genius. He said, "Imagination (a right brain characteristic) is more important than knowledge."
The left brain is linked to the "outer" senses of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell.
The right brain is linked to the "inner" senses of perfect memory, computer-like math calculation, rapid language acquisition, perfect pitch (music abilities), and intuitive thought.

When these senses are developed, especially in young children, you have a potential Mozart, de Vinci, Einstein or Ueshiba on your hands. The fact is, all successful people have one or more right brain "inner" senses well integrated with left brain "outer" functions. That's how they get so much done for so many people. If you have friends, that seem to magnetize huge amounts of money, are excellent chess players, or are excellent artists, for example, know that having well developed right and left brain functions plays a large role in their success.
Find Your Right Brain Strengths
And what about you? What are your right brain strengths? What intuitive or other unique abilities do you possess that none of your friends have?
Experts tell us that everyone has genius-like capabilities. And, you know what I found? The right brain subconscious is so fast and intuitive that it can naturally reveal the solutions to complex questions or problems before our logical, doubting left brain kicks in. We just need to get more in touch with those right brain functions.
Just imagine if your children's right brain senses were much more developed and defined? That's just what the games and exercises on this site can help your children do! Now, let's talk about ways to really get the brain cells spinning and synapses firing.
Right Brain Games and Memory
Because many of the readers of this topic have been schooled in America or have children that are in a mainstream American school, you're already familiar with left brain learning. So, many of the right brain games we present on our site may seem foreign to you, that's because they are - many were inspired by the accelerated learning methods practiced in Japan. Well, you'll also find them different because they target right brain development and function, something that's very much needed in western-style schools and learning institutions.
The beauty of right brain education is, when coupled with left brain school work or thought processes, we find that memory, creativity, expression and learning capacity can improve dramatically.
A Word About Accelerated Learning Environment
Dr. Shichida found that only in an environment of love, peace and harmony, where your child feels safe and not pressured to perform, can they truly benefit from right brain left brain memory games. When playing these games with infants and young children, never show disappointment and always keep a positive attitude. If your child shows disinterest in the games, put them away until another time.
Be sure to keep games interesting by using various different images and objects. A feeling of oneness with your child while playing these is also very important especially with infants and toddlers. Proper music can also play an important role in your child's development.
So, let's get that right brain left brain fired up! Please make a selection in the Section Topics at the right or go to our games section.
