Project Description

I want to get back to relation of rhythm and intelligence, starting with this headline:

"Prof Frederic Ullen, from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, concluded that there was a link between intelligence, good timing and the part of the brain used for problem-solving." ([url removed, login to view])

Also we can use a little from Rhythm based movement training which helps children and people with handicaps, resulting in conclusion that moving to the beat helps synchronize brain function ([url removed, login to view])

"Scientists have long known that moving to a steady beat requires synchronization between the parts of the brain responsible for hearing and movement. In the current study, Professor Nina Kraus, PhD, and colleagues at Northwestern University examined the relationship between the ability to keep a beat and the brain's response to sound."

Helping with verbal skills and reading and memory for creating sentences and thus argumentation: "Rhythm is inherently a part of music and language," Kraus said. "It may be that musical training, with an emphasis on rhythmic skills, exercises the auditory-system, leading to strong sound-to-meaning associations that are so essential in learning to read. "([url removed, login to view])

"Moving in time to a steady beat is closely linked to better language skills, a study suggests"

It can be a little longer (1000 words+), please state sources at the end. I want to ephasize all the relations of rhytmic training and brain development, language skills, problem solving etc - in relation to our computerized game which exercises rhythms, short term memory and motoric functions because of using all ten fingers for control and thus developing natural senses for rhythm accuracy.

Please ask in case of any questions, thanks
