Music and the brain of the child

According to numerous studies, the use of music as an additional sensory influx significantly improves speech functions in preschool children.

Any activity, in particular, intellectual, is provided by the functional work of the brain associated with the perception and processing of information.

One of the paradoxes of our time is that the functional capabilities of the human body have remained unchanged since ancient times, and you need to know and be able to disproportionately more than before. This explains the tendency that has emerged in modern pedagogy towards earlier intensive training — early development techniques are widely used in pedagogical practice; at an earlier age than before school begins.

Enhancing cathartic experiences with music

Just one look at a person who has in his memory a difficult experience, actualized in the present, in order to determine the presence of this experience. Usually, a person tries to hide an emotion breaking out to realization, possibly interpreting it as negative.

But tensions arising in a person who suppresses his emotions help to destroy the “primary essence”, which increases the estrangement from most people and others (Lowen, 1975). According to Lowen, the “primary essence” is the pleasure of life, the source of which is freedom of movement and lack of tension in the body.

In the modern world of “distress” and stimulants, the acquired automatism of controlling bodily stresses does not allow one to have enough freedom of movement for the timely response of bodily stresses. In many cases of therapeutic practice, the most effective methods remain, which include elements of catharsis (from the Greek. Catharsis – purification). Continue reading

Healthy skin – healthy hearing

The theory claims that the brain uses a holographic coding system, so that it is capable of multifaceted encoding sensory signals through all senses. Therefore, any stimulus, such as sound, for example, can be transmitted through any other sensory organ, in such a way that the brain can recognize the incoming signal just like sound, using a type of signal code that is special for sound.

It seems that without wanting it, Patrick Flanagan made a significant contribution to the confirmation of this theory when, as a teenager, he invented a device that allows any person (even completely deaf, even with a middle ear removed surgically and, moreover, even with completely atrophied auditory nerve) hear through the skin. Patrick called his device – “Neurophone” (Neurophone). An entertaining story of the creation of a neurophone. Continue reading
