Your Brain is Better on Music

 

Have you ever listened to music to relax, study or exercise? If so, you’ve likely experienced the therapeutic benefits of music. In my first TEDx talk I share how scientifically designed music and neurotechnology can facilitate positive changes in brain chemistry, function and structure through the simple practice of listening. But there is more to it than meets the ear.

Watch, listen and discover why children and adults with autism, sleep, depression, learning, emotional, and stress related difficulties are being helped by the power of music to reveal and access their true potential.

This talk features the neuroscience-based music programs we have created at Advanced Brain Technologies, Vital Neuro, and Sleep Genius.

Tonight is TEDx Ogden Illumination and I’m thrilled to be one of the invited speakers.

The message I am sharing is intended to be one of awareness and hope. It embodies our vision, that we have been spreading globally for 20 years.

TEDx Ogden, is another opportunity to touch more lives with this important idea worth spreading… Your Brain is Better on Music

Since a direct livestream link is not yet ready you’ll want to login to Facebook and go to the TEDxOgden Facebook page to find the livestream when the event begins. If you do not see it right away, refresh the screen and check the page again.

Given there are 7 speakers and entertainment, my talk may not start exactly at the scheduled time, so it would be a good idea to tune in earlier and be prepared for the talk to start earlier or later then planned.

I hope you can watch this evening (morning and day for many of my international friends) and that you will share the event with people who you want to hear about the value music has to enhance our lives, and the lives of the people we care about.

Music Heals: Corebrain Journal Interview

cello-music2-1024x480

Dr. Charles Parker recently interviewed me for Corebrain Journal to discuss how music can impact us in meaningful ways. We explored a broad range of topics including autism, early childhood, aging, neuroplasticity, The Listening Program®, and much more.

You can listen to the interview here, and enter a drawing (closes in two weeks), for one of five autographed copied of my book Healing at the Speed of Sound. Please tune in and spread the word if you find the information helpful!

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!     

The Neuro Revolution

The Neuro Revolution

My fascination with the human brain began at an early age mainly because of the seeds planted by my grandfather, the late Robert J. Doman M.D., whom I have written about before. The stories he told and the patients I was fortunate to meet over the years of my youth were gratifying evidence of the brain’s ability to rewire itself, long before the concept of neuroplasticity became something the medical community began to acknowledge. Now ideas that were discarded by critics in the past are beginning to enter the mainstream. Perhaps because of these early influences I continue to be intrigued by the possibilities that have begun to present themselves with the advent of advanced research methods and new technologies.

One important person who appears to share this fascination is Zack Lynch, who founded an organization that Advanced Brain Technologies  is proud to be a member of; the Neurotechnology Industry Organization.  The mission of NIO is “to accelerate treatments and cures for brain and nervous system diseases by increasing the awareness of neurotechnologies, reducing barriers to innovation and supporting long term industry growth.” http://www.neurotechindustry.org

Zack has just published a new book that I am very much looking forward to reading in the near future: The Neuro Revolution: How Brain Science Is Changing Our World. He has had unique access to many of the new technologies that could transform our society, and has shared information that all of us should be aware of, since these technologies could transform society as we know it.
