How Auditory Brain Training Can Change Your Life

Dr. Michael Merzenich, PhD

If you follow the brain fitness field the name Michael Merzenich, Ph.D. will surely ring a bell. Dr. Merzenich, is one of the neuroscientists responsible for our current understanding of brain plasticity– the notion that the brain can change itself at any age.

I’ve followed his research since the mid nineties, and have to say his work has continued to validate what we observe in the functional and behavioral changes seen in clients using Advanced Brain Technologies products like The Listening Program®; the human auditory system is highly malleable.  It is susceptible to damage with over exposure to noise resulting in negative plasticity, and conversely responsive with positive neural change when provided with structured auditory training using certain salient sounds.

Dr. Merzenich is the Chief Science Officer for Posit Science, and author of the upcoming book Soft-Wired: How the New Science of Brain Plasticity Can Change Your LifeI’ve asked him to join me for How Auditory Brain Training Can Change Your Life on the next episode of the Sound Brain Fitness Teleseminar Series coming up next week.  Together we’ll discuss his new book and explore these main points:

  • How you can improve your auditory listening abilities with neuroplasticity-based training to sharply improve your conversational, cognitive, speech and music abilities.
  • How training your brain as a master listener also refines your attentive powers and amplifies your baseline level of arousal—your “brightness.”
  • Evidence that these gains are attributable to strong, positive, enduring physical changes in your brain.  The trained brain is a stronger, better brain.
  • How combining auditory training and brain training in the other great perceptual and action-control domains, you can rejuvenate a struggling brain—and if taken seriously, can assure a more effective, happier, and more secure adult life.

Please join us, Wednesday, June 5th at 8 pm Eastern. The call is free, but will be at capacity. So sign up now, and be sure to call in early to reserve your spot!     

Spatial Awareness, Emotions and Memory

DocG_Photo

Three years ago I had the opportunity to present our work at Advanced Brain Technologies to the attendees of the Neurotechnology Industry Organization Conference in Boston. You meet the most interesting people at these events. One standout from this gathering was a fascinating woman named Dr. G, Chief Brainiac behind The George Greenstein Institute, and one of the brainy minds behind Inventio!Brains.

Since Boston we’ve kept in touch through the social network and industry events like the Sharp Brain Virtual Summit.  I’ve grown increasingly curious about the lens Dr. G sees the world through bridging between neuroscience and the arts, so I’ve invited her to join me as a guest on the Sound Brain Fitness Teleseminar Series tomorrow evening to explore her work.

You can learn more about this event below. Registration is free. I hope you’ll join us for what I am sure will be a fun and informative hour.     

Spatial Awareness, Emotions and Memory 

Some call it cognitive mapping. Some call it spatial memory. Whatever you call it, be sure to recognize and practice the strategic use of your hippocampal networks for dynamic, whole brain attention, memory and growth!

Drawing on decades of research and teaching of applied neuroscience and spatial mapping practices to artists and designers, Dr. Greenstein shares her insights on training spatial awareness, emotions and memory and the “What, How, When and Where” value distinctions between using stimulus reward and strategic mapping practices for gaming.

In this talk, Alex and his guest, an expert in applied neuroscience and “knowledge transfer” Dr. M. A. Greenstein will explore 3 big ideas impacting your brain health and ed/psych practices:

• Cognitive Mapping and Landmarking is the best kept secret for promoting good brain health practice through your lifetime

• Active Observation and Mindful Attention are key for promoting Cognitive Mapping and Landmarking

• Cognitive Mapping and Landmarking are encoded, stored and used again by visual and spatial strategies found in performing arts training as well as online gaming

Auditory Hypersensitivity and Autism

Sound is everywhere, it’s as much a part of our lives as the air we breathe and the food we eat. Yet, many people become stressed or uncomfortable with sounds in their own home, school, work, and public places, and aren’t even aware of it.The cause, NOISE!

Negative sound exposure has a scientifically proven impact on health, sleep, attention, learning, communication, listening, hearing, stress and more. A 2011 report from the World Health Organization and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre Burden of Disease From Environmental Noise states that “noise like this is second only to air pollution as an environmental cause of ill health.” There is no question noise is a major health concern, something my co-author Don Campbell and me wrote about extensively in our book Healing at the Speed of Sound®.  Each of us is impacted by noise, some more than others. But millions with autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing disorders and brain injury are not only impacted by noise, but often develop a negative emotional response to sound.

Dr. Jay Lucker, associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders at Howard University in Washington, DC recently co-authored an article with me for Autism Science Digest which explores sound sensitivities in a growing population of children and adults with autism that are known to commonly have hypersensitivities to sound. The article titled “Auditory Hypersensitivity and Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Emotional Response” is in the current issue 04, which is available at Barnes and Noble through July.

Article Abstract- Many children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder are described as having auditory hypersensitivities. This paper describes auditory hypersensitivities, the systems involved in hypersensitive hearing, methods for evaluating auditory hypersensitivity in children, and possible treatments. Auditory hypersensitivity involves the non-classical auditory system and is an emotional response to sound rather than an auditory response. Children described as being hypersensitive to sound have negative emotional reactions to sounds and situations in which the sounds are present. It is possible to desensitize these negative emotional reactions and reprogram the emotional memory system so that children are no longer frightened by sounds.

My company Advanced Brain Technologies today announced the launch of TLP Spectrum™; a new auditory program for at home use, to improve sound brain fitness and reduce sensory sensitivities in children and adults who are or who may become hypersensitive to sounds. This program is a gentle way to desensitize emotional reactions to sound.

TLP Spectrum consists of evidence-based instrumental music which contains proprietary sound technologies to exercise the brain, and filter out unwanted sounds, while keeping the listener relaxed during fifteen-minute listening sessions with headphones. The program is ideal for those most susceptible to sound sensitivity; including children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing disorders, brain injury and developmental delays, as well as typically developing toddlers (my 2 year old son is on the program), preschoolers, and the elderly.

I’ll be presenting this article and introducing TLP Spectrum at the Autism One/ Generation Rescue Conference 2012 in Chicago next month. Hope to see you there!
