Interactive Metronome improves cognitive abilities by using innovative neuro-sensory and neuro-motor exercises targeted to improve the brain's inherent ability to repair or remodel itself through a process called neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity, also known as cortical re-mapping, involves the molding and growing of neurons by means of experience. Experience drives this change.
The IM experiences are motor actions, with accurate cognitive feedback about these specific actions within time and space. This remarkably accurate feedback system results in a change in the strength of the neuronal connections, impacts the addition or deletion of connections, and can even stimulate the growth of new neuronal cells and connections.
Recent research suggests that all areas of the brain are plastic (can be changed) at any age. Substantial changes occur in the neocortical processing areas, and these changes can profoundly alter sensory processing including visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, proprioceptive and vestibular processes. The challenging repetitive tasks change both the brain's physical structure as well as it's foundational organization.
Our brain is the organ of thinking, feeling and behaving. When it works right, we work right.
