    What would happen if we decided to start studying (anything and everything) all day long and everyday for several months? What would this do to our brain?

    Furthermore, does anyone know what kind of effects such studying has on cognitive deficits (or learning disabilities)? Does it help?

    Please feel free to post your thoughts, opinions, links, etc... Thank you!

    We'd get tired and find it very difficult to actually retain much information. Wouldn't actually do anything to the brain. Lots of people do it, to be fair, at university and for A levels. I haven't seen anything ever talk about your second question, but I would imagine that you'd find it very difficult to get anyone with any sort of disability to actually take part in it. They'd give up very quickly.

    I guess it's like being at work for a very long time. You'd get tired, not be able to take anything in as said, probably get irritable. I don't know that it'd help people with learning disabilities as they'd probably have it worse than someone without a disability would.

    nothing happens, but you retain information if you take breaks during ur study, like when its exam period i study one hour, then go for a walk, whilst im working i try to remeMber what i just did, DO NOT STUDY FOR LONG HOURS WITHOUT TAKING A BREAK, OR ELSE ITS WILL BE POINTLESS

    Information goes through one brain and out the other...
    Edit: Well there's an obvious case of what happens if you are too exhuasted.
    Edit 2: Why does the brain get tired when studying anyway?
