Does typing help improve our brain function?
When you type using the touch-typing method, you are activating quite a lot of memory skills. Muscle memory in your fingers and hands tells you the position of the keys and the spacing between them. You also have to remember how to spell words and the functions of all of the different keys.

Absolutely! When we learn a new skill, our brain develops new pathways. Practicing a new skill will strengthen and multiply those pathways, literally growing your brain and teaching it to be better and better at said skill.
Learning to type is no different! And as @ABernales mentioned, since touch typing involves muscle memory, practicing this skill is also good for the brain’s memory making skills!
