Scientists Develop Technique to Train the Brain to Avoid Dyslexia
Scientists design effective activities to train the brain against disorders such as dyslexia, according to a new study published on March 7, 2018.
A team of researchers at the Basque research center BCBL, found that brain synchronizations to pitch and tone in speech, influence language processing. Based on this understanding, the team devised effective activities to help in the prevention of dyslexia.
They studied the consequences of the effect of brain synchronization, also known as brain-entrainment, in regions of the brain directly related to language processing. They analyzed the brain synchronization of 72 volunteers and found that synchronization with speech was more intense to low frequency waves, which include those associated with accent, tones, and intonation of speech.
Children suffering from dyslexia, show a weak synchronization with low frequency bands, this in turn causes poor activation of the brain regions associated with language processing.
It is also scientifically found that youngsters are unable to optimally process low frequency waves find it more difficult to decode phonemes and words, which is directly related to reading ability and possible disorders, such as dyslexia.
Brain synchronization in dyslexic children can be measured while the child is listening to speech. The child can be rewarded more synchronizations with the low frequency band are stimulated. This can help children who are out of sync, to increase their attention to the tones, accents, and intonations of speech.
