Working on a puzzle reinforces connections between brain cells, improves mental speed and is an effective way to improve short-term memory.
Puzzles increase the production of dopamine, a chemical that regulates mood, memory, and concentration. Dopamine is released with every success as we solve the puzzle. One of the many benefits of puzzles is that they build social development skills.
Puzzles provide a great opportunity for children to work together to accomplish a greater goal, which enhances and promotes cooperative play.
