Your functional neurology treatment plan is tailored to the specific needs Dr. Hudson finds during your initial consultation and exam. Dr. Hudson uses a wide variety of methods to stimulate your nervous system and improve its function. He also has top of the line brain training equipment: Interactive Metronome and D2-Dynavision.
Interactive Metronome is a training tool that measures and improves Neurotiming, which is the synchronization of neural impulses within key brain networks for cognitive, communicative, sensory and motor performance. By hitting a trigger in time with a steady auditory beat, an individual is given visual and auditory feedback to allow him or her to make immediate corrections to continually improving timing and rhythm over the course of the training. According to IM research, improving Neurotiming may result in better function in the following areas:
- Processing Speed
- Working Memory
- Expressive and Receptive Language
- Reading Comprehension, Rate and Fluency
- Motor Coordination
- Athletic Performance
- Self Regulation
Precise timing is responsible for a stellar athletic performance, or a group of musicians making a perfect melody or it can even be the key to a funny punch line. Timing is responsible for a person being able to walk without falling or speaking without stuttering. Timing is what allows us to focus, process language, keep our balance and have smooth gait, play a sport, and even read. Timing is responsible for the synchronous communication of our brains’ network system that connects cognitive processes and physical movement. Therefore, the ability to have accurate Neurotiming is one of the most critical factors in human performance.
