PTE Re-tell Lecture 真实讲座练习题: Can we train our brains?

在PTE中,无论是Summarise Spoken Text 还是 Re-tell Lecture的考题大都是从真实的讲座或者演讲中截取的,中间经常经常夹杂很多不同的环境音.很多同学都反映有时未必是听不懂,而是听不到. 鉴于此,墨尔本文波雅思PTE专门为大家总结了真实讲座的PTE练习音频,相比新闻音频来说,整体更加接近PTE考试的真题,内容方面,我们也会为大家提供考试中存在的近似题,最近我们会持续更新,敬请期待!


The brain is thought to have regions strictly dedicated to certain cognitive tasks. It has a remarkable ability to change in response to injury or disability, such as blindness. But can such change happened without the injury? Reading Braille is a tactile activity, so should involve the somatosensory cortex– an area of the brain dedicated to the sense of touch. People who have become blind cease to use their visual cortex–a brain area dedicated to site, but when they learned Braille, they began to use it again. Researchers at Jagiellonian University in Poland wanted to find out if the same redistributions of tasks could happen inciting people over 9 months, they taught braille to 29 cited but blindfolded participants. The volunteers with scans using functional MRI, which indicates which part of the brain are being used as they read Braille passages. The scan revealed volunteers had begun to use their visual cortex and during the lessons, the connections that formed between the visual and somatosensory cortex regions. That suggests the division of label within the brain is not so absolute and it means intensive training is enough to reorganize which parts of the brain do what. As the leader author experiment puts it ‘we’re all be able to retain our senses if we put the work in.
