People with developmental disorders have a deficit in the working time of the brain. Our brain functions as a type of internal clock (time synchronization) that keeps the time in intervals of hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds and microseconds for better performance.
This internal clock helps us focus, determine when we should rest and wake up, remember information, coordinate our movements, be attentive to noises and other stimuli, understand what we read, and process what we hear.
Scientists have discovered that when we do any activity, from speaking to clapping, many parts of our brains work synchronously, at a perfect time, to be able to execute even what seems very simple.
If the brain cannot maintain the internal clock, the different parts of the watch cannot be synchronized to work properly. As a result of this problem, overall functioning will be affected in areas such as attention, reading, writing, math, dancing, talking, walking or sports.
Interactive Metronome Therapy (IM) uses a metronome to develop or improve temporal or internal brain clock ingende scan to improve performance and improve individual’s academic, sensory, communication and social skills .
