    What are the effects of intensive studying (8-10hrs/day) on the brain? What does this kind of brain stimulation do for the brain. Oh, and by studying I mean, anything and everything.

    Furthermore, does anyone know what kind of effects would such studying have on cognitive deficits (or learning disabilities)?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you fuel your brain using a good diet and sleep I think all will happen is you will learn alot.

    I've never found it to work for me, largely because there's no way in hell I can concentrate for 8-10 hours a day. I do 1 hour a day no more and no less. Never had anything less then an A in my life.

    I studied 12 hours a day for my last exams and i felt that you have to sleep well and eat reasonably well but other than that you will get used to it and it will become normal after the first week.

    I can do up to about 5-6 hours if I get into it. I think my main problem was my eyes going a bit weird, but if you go for a walk every few hours for a few mins you'll be fine. As well as sleep & eating well.
