In a recent study, researchers observed the brain's activity as we learn a new skill, such as playing a new song on the piano, and discovered why taking short breaks from practice is a key to learning.
During rest the brain rapidly and repeatedly replayed faster versions of the activity seen whilst the new skill had been practised. The more a person replayed the activity the better they performed during subsequent practice sessions, suggesting rest strengthened memories.

A recent research study indicates that, "...similar clinical outcomes can be achieved via the telephone as are obtained in face-to-face [therapy]".
Furthermore, the alliance between therapist and client, as well as levels of empathy, attentiveness, participation and openess, are equivalent as in face-to-face therapy.
