The complexity of human brain structure can be observed under ultra-high-power biological microscope, and the brain differences of people of different occupations are often greater than those of people of the same occupation. The reason is that different activities stimulate the brain differently. Similarly, Weiqi, as an activity beneficial to the brain, also has the function of improving the brain. However, Weiqi training is usually regarded as an entertainment activity and its medical function is often neglected. The purpose of this article is to study the effect of Weiqi training on the brain health recovery of patients. Through literature research and investigation, the function and brain structure of Weiqi are briefly introduced, and the types of brain diseases and neurotrophic factors are analyzed. The classification of brain diseases mainly includes brain injury, brain tumor, cerebrovascular disease, scalp and skull diseases, intracranial infectious diseases, functional diseases, etc. The effects of Weiqi training on the brain health recovery of patients were compared through comparative experiments. The results showed that 40 minutes of go training per day increased the BDNF concentration of mild Alzheimer's patients by 0.52μg/L, and 80 minutes of go training per day increased the BDNF concentration of mild Alzheimer's patients by 0.75μg/L. The 40-minute go training every day makes 52.5% of the patients feel better, and the 80-minute go training every day makes 60% of the patients feel better. Moreover, Weiqi training is of great help to relieve anxiety and depression of patients.
