More research on cerebellum’s impact on speech, language and working memory

A newly published article by the Department of Neurology, Division of Cognitive Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine outlines another look into the role the cerebellum plays in language development and cognition. There are many researchers investigating this part of the brain that is so deeply involved in movement and a huge variety…

Seminar: Dr. Frank Belgau on Neural Connections and Learning Breakthrough

This video shows Dr. Frank Belgau relating the connection between neural network efficiency and resolution of neurons being mathematically connected to the number of neurons involved in the difficulty of a task. This concept is at the core of Learning Breakthrough’s “variable difficulty balance platform” which Dr. Belgau credits as his most important single contribution…

Dr. Frank Belgau on Neuro Feedback & Learning Breakthrough

Interview: Dr. Frank Belgau on How is Neuro Feedback Involved in Learning Breakthrough. Interview: Dr. Frank Belgau on How is Neuro Feedback Involved in Learning Breakthrough. Dr. Belgau describes how neurofeedback is powerfully integrated with Learning Breakthrough’s pendulum ball activities as the brain regulates itself in response to the successful and unsuccessful cycles of working…

How Traditional Dyslexia Treatments Fail

Dyslexia in children and adults is often addressed according to two models, each of which generally focus on linguistic or language-related skills. “These methods emphasize strategy and cognitive development and are not based on a brain processing relationship, which is dysfunctional in dyslexia. Consequently, these techniques have not produced consistent reading improvement.” (Goldstein, 2001) Goldstein’s…

Importance of Balance & Sensory Integration Skills Development in Children

Balance is a multi-sensory activity. Our “sense” of balance, from the time of our embryonic development through full-fledged adulthood, is based on the proper functioning of the vestibular system in close conjunction with our visual, motor skills and positioning (proprioceptive) systems. Body position, muscular-skeletal control, tactile feedback, motor coordination and visual processing inputs all combine…
