What is Brain Training
The human brain is the most incredibly complex, sophisticated, and versatile object known to man. All our bodily processes and everything we think, say and do depends on the proper functioning of its 86 billion nerve cells and the 100 trillion connections between them. Until about 30 years ago, scientists believed that the number of nerve cells and synaptic connections are fixed from childhood. With age and abuses, like drugs or alcohol you could only lose brain cells and network capacity. Fortunately for us, we now know that this is not the case.
The Power of Neuroplasticity
Neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to rewire itself, is widely considered to be the greatest discovery in the last 100 years of brain science. The fact is that the brain can literally grow and develop at any time in life. The trick is to know exactly what methods to use in order to harness that capacity and direct it toward the specific mental performance goals that you would like to achieve. Obviously brain fitness is a necessity if we are to attain the measure of health, happiness and success that we all want and need.
So how do you take care of a brain? It’s true that proper diet, rest and exercise play an important role. So does challenging yourself with pastimes like Sudoku, chess or online brain games.
But if you actually want to boost your brain power to a whole new level and significantly improve your ability to focus, think, learn and remember, you will need to work in an entirely different way. You will need a properly designed and administered course of brain training in order to access the brain’s capacity to change itself.
Real Brain Training Gives Real Results
The Maxi Mind Brain Training SystemTM is built on three primary modalities of stimulating the brain – each without drugs, without academia, but with… fun: Sensory integration exercise, engineered listening, and computerized focus training using biofeedback.
The specific brain training techniques we employ are developed, tested and endorsed by leading experts in their respective fields.
For sensory integration, Maxi Mind incorporates the pioneering work of Frank Belgau, Ed.D., developer of Balametrics and the Learning Breakthrough Program. We also use iLs exercises developed by an expert team at the Sensory Therapies and Research Center under the direction of the legendary therapist, researcher and author Lucy Jane Miller, PhD, OTR. For engineered listening, we use the Integrated Listening System, developed over a period of 20 years by the illustrious neuropsychiatrist, Dr. Ron Minson, MD, a pioneer and leading expert in the use of engineered music for improving mental performance and treating a variety of brain based disorders. learn more about the Maxi Mind Brain Training ProgramTM
For computerized focus training based on biofeedback we incorporate the ongoing work of educator Peter Freer, inventor of Play Attention, a game system that uses NASA-developed feedback protocols to train children to focus while developing skills for learning and life.
By combining these techniques into individually customized brain training courses and coaching our clients to excellence on their performance, Maxi Mind delivers a unique benefit – lasting cognitive improvement for the vast majority of its clientele. And to top it all off – it’s fun to do!
