“Play is correlated to the development of the brain’s frontal cortex,
which is the important brain region
responsible for much of what we call cognition:
discriminating relevant from irrelevant information,
monitoring and organizing our own thoughts and feelings,
and planning for the future.
. . . .In play we can imagine and experience situations
we have never encountered before
and learn from them.
We can create possibilities
that have never existed but may in the future.
We make new cognitive connections
that find their way into our everyday lives.
We can learn lessons and skills
without being directly at risk. . . .
The genius of play
is that, in playing,
we create imaginative new cognitive combinations.
And in creating those novel combinations,
we find what works.”
Stuart Brown, from Play: How it Shapes the Brain,
Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul
