Keywords:Psychological perception, Depression, Stress, Anxiety, DASS-21, Brain gym
Brain Gym is an academic kinesiological program that is promoted and applied with a consistent learning
purpose that aims at enhancing performance such as memory, psychological perception and cognitive
skills. The technique requires the participant to communicate with a series of activities that help the body
to understand the primary behaviour and learn how to coordinate the brain and entire body. Brain Gym
activities includes of 26 basic motions, which are believed to improve perception and stimulates brain
hemisphere by neural re-modelling to facilitate whole brain learning. By ways of balancing both the side of
brain, behavioral difficulties, social and intellectual burdens are expected to be reduced.
Aims and Objective: This study aims to evaluate the psychological perception and decrease depression in
the undergraduate physiotherapy students.
Method: Here’s a idea we suggest to check the psychological perception with brain gym intervention
and the duration for practices comprises of three days a week session, duration of 25 minutes, which is
completed in one hour. The depression anxiety stress scale (DASS 21) is used to evaluate disorder which is
a valid and reliable tool. This study will be conducted in Ravi Nair Physiotherapy college, Sawangi, Meghe,
Wardha. The duration of the study will be six months. The study design is of before after-type with simple
Result: The data will be analysed using Student paired t test.
Conculsion: The expected outcome includes the detection of stress, depression and anxiety levels which
will be evaluated by using DASS-21. Data analysis will be done using students paired t test and conclusion
of the study will be published after the results are analysed.
