“Eye”mazing Progress!

Have you looked at your recent copy of Journal of Neurology? No need! We are going to bring that good information and research to you – in language that makes sense.

Researchers at the University of Southern California have developed a new screening method for detecting neurological disorders by studying the eye movements of individuals. Participants in this study were instructed to watch and enjoy clips from television shows for a period of twenty minutes. During this time, researchers recorded their eye movements. These eye movement patterns were then used to determine brain function or dysfunction. At the conclusion of this study, researchers were able to identify individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and/or Parkinson’s Disease – simply by their ocular control and attention dysfunctions.

This research is significant, because “for the first time, we can actually decode a person’s neurological state from their everyday behavior, without having to subject them to difficult or time-consuming tests,” Professor Laurent Itti said. See this link to read the entire article.

We are thrilled about this new information because it continues to validate our methods! Brainjogging trains the eyes to move efficiently and thoroughly from left to right, taking in all visual stimuli, particularly stimuli in the peripheral fields of vision. This increased efficiency yields a more comprehensive visual stimulus for the brain to process. Brainjogging is a preventative and corrective tool. By identifying the root of the learning difficulty early, we can begin reversing the difficulties.

Allow Brainjogging to work for you! Let it be your learning tool! It works if you work it, but you have to work it every day!!!
