    Hopefully they’ll get it for free on youtube.
    Seen at least two of these in a short well marketed book by well acclaimed scientists. Maybe psychiatry and not modern neurosci. though (but I would remember if it was psychology!) I will try to find their sources (~articles) if you’re interested. I definitely agree that the oversimplifying by these practitioners are a problem. They, as the whole discipline of chiropractics it stems from, should learn that can only cause a backlash against it.

    non-sense:you cannot turn on your memory by pinching your ears! I’m an occupational therapist-these activities may help activate you & your child; and they will help focus the attention and therefore, promote this:but please dont be fooled! Engage with your child: do physical activties together-do some slow and precise ones that encourage and require attention! Anyone can do these.There are no brain buttons!! Activity (&chewy/crunchy foods) aid attention which can be gradually extended.Good luck

    the elephant and lazy 8s you are doing way too fast. you are supposed to breathe in when you are going up and breath out when going down. these exercises are not about speed. also when doing lazy dont 8s hold your thumb out with a straight hand but bend it and keep a bit closer to the face. your head should be almost completely static. the point of lazy 8s is to help with eye-hand coordination but the exercise becomes pointless when you start moving your head. anyways quite a helpfull video.

    @KinaLearn Thanks……

    1) If it’s just placebo, teachers shouldn’t have to pay for it
    2) It propagates utterly false beliefs. The reality is fascinating, and false beliefs block the curiosity about what really is. And can give teachers bad teaching practices. If they were interested in real neuroscience, teachers could really improve their methods. (But scientists are really bad at marketting)

    If some one tries it and it works for them, then it works. Even if it’s just a placebo effect. What difference does it make if it makes neurological sense?

    I’m dyslexic and have adh-_-

    Please, listen to your common sense. “Brain button” is the stupiest idea I’ve ever seen on the brain. And yes, I’m studying neurosciences.

    Do yoga or classic gym or anything. But don’t believe THIS, please.

  10. KinaLearn1 says:

    Yes sure. You can teach your daughter. She should be able to do most of the exercises by herself.
