Musical hallucinations
The music itself sounds in my head. Familiar? It happens, probably, with everyone, what is there. Cling to some "girl Praskovya", spin-spin and stop. Another thing is when the melody…

In healthy skin – healthy hearing (part 1)

The theory States that the brain uses a holographic coding system, so it is able to encode sensory signals through all the senses. Therefore, any stimulus, such as sound, for example, can be transmitted through any other sense organ, so that the brain can recognize the incoming signal as sound, using a special type of signal code for sound.

It seems, unwittingly, a significant contribution to the confirmation of this theory made Patrick Flanagan (Patrick Flanagan), when as a teenager invented a device that allows anyone (even completely deaf, even with remote surgically middle ear and, moreover, even with a completely atrophied auditory nerve) to hear through the skin. Patrick called his device – “Neurophone” (Neurophone). Entertaining history of neurophone. Continue reading

At the limit of hearing possibilities

French otolaryngologist Alfred Tomatis was the first to systematically investigate the influence of high-frequency sounds on the human psyche.

According to his theory, the child, floating in amniotic fluid during the period of fetal development, hears a lot of sounds that are inaccessible to him after birth — the mother’s breath, her heartbeat, voice, noise from the work of internal organs, etc.

This is due to the fact that during the period of fetal development, the child’s ears are filled with a liquid that conducts sound much better than air; in particular, the liquid is much less attenuate high-frequency Continue reading

Mozart effect (part 3)

The study of the Mozart effect on children and other experiments on the effect on the development of the child’s brain gave impetus to the widespread dissemination in American society of the ideas of the so-called child determinism — the theory that the first three years of life are decisive for the mental formation of the child. Parents were taught to care for the formation of neural networks in the child’s brain at a very early age.

This new campaign was started by Rob Rainer in a book called “I’m your child.” The first years of life remain forever, he told readers. And this is because it is in the first years of life that the child’s brain forms trillions of synapses (connections connecting brain nerve cells). Continue reading
