Creative Thinking Activities and Exercises for a Smarter Brain This creative exercise works well for students as well as adults and is a great idea to develop one's linguistic skills. Take a short word, say for example Dye. Now make a sentence using the letters of this word as the first letter of each word in a sentence. So in the given example, one could make a sentence: Did You Eat? With the word What, a sentence can be made: Who Has A Torch?
in fact we now know that language function is incredibly widely distributed through the brain, “extend[ing] far beyond ‘Broca’s’ and ‘Wernicke’s areas’,” involving areas “in the frontal, parietal, and temporal lobes, in the medial hemispheres of the brain, as well as in the basal ganglia, thalamus and cerebellum.”

Portions of the brain fall asleep and wake back up all the time
When we are in a deep slumber our brain's activity ebbs and flows in big, obvious waves, like watching a tide of human bodies rise up and sit down around a sports stadium. It's hard to miss. Now, researchers have found, those same cycles exist in wake as in sleep, but with only small sections sitting and standing in unison rather than the entire stadium. It's as if tiny portions of the brain are independently falling asleep and waking back up all the time.
