Kikunori Shinohara, a professor in
the Neuroscience department of Suwa Tokyo Science University, announced
that building Gundam models or Gunpla was healthy for the human brain.
The act of putting the model together promotes blood circulation in the brain,
said Shinohara-san, which lets it " concentrate better, react better and remember better."
Shinohara encouraged people of all ages to build models to promote brain health.
