Im provides a structured, goal-oriented program that challenges the student to synchronize a range of whole body exercises to a precise computer-generated metronome beat. The student attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor movements.
IM's game-like auditory-visual platform engages the student and provides constant feedback at the millisecond level to promote synchronized timing in the brain.
Exercises can be customized and involve a heirarchy of increasingly complex and precisely timed motor movements intertwined with gradually higher and faster cognitive processing, attention and decision-making.
I use IM as the basis of our program. By incorportating other modalites like "LearningTechnics", "Balametrics", "Brain Gym", "Brainhq" and many others, we are able to individualize each session for each need. Which means a session can consist of 30 minutes of IM along with word games, bouncing balls, twister...whatever it takes to get each particular person engaged and improving.
The brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throught life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.
IM promtes neuroplasticity by using neuro-sensory and neuro-motor exercises.
