Brain Timing / Processing Time
Develop Bi-lateral Coordination
Brain timing is another way of expressing the necessary integration between the 2 hemispheres of the brain.
For the brain to process information more efficiently, the processing speed needs to be faster. The processing speed of the brain becomes faster and more rhythmical as bi-lateral coordination develops to a higher degree.
Because slower brain processing speed shows up as motor skill deficiencies (poor bi-lateral coordination), consider this:
The greater the balance required by Minds-in-Motion exercises,
- the faster the brain must process information provided by the various senses and
- the faster the brain must process the interaction of the two hemispheres of the brain.
Utilizing balance-training exercises can successfully increase the integration of the two hemispheres of the brain.
This is why Minds-in-Motion requires so many balancing activities, and increasingly adds to the complexity of the balancing exercise. For example, as a higher-level skill to try at home or at school….
…have students balance on a cushion placed upon a balance board while tossing a bean bag over their head and reciting math facts at the same time!
