How Sound Therapy improves Memory
Memory is improved by brain stimulation
It happens to all of us. You go into a room to get something, then you stop dead in your tracks and realise you have no idea why you came into that room. You rack your brains but can’t remember. So you go back to what you were doing before, and the memory comes flashing back.
When I tell this story, particularly to older people, they really relate to it. Memory, especially short term memory is a big issue as we get older. The above example occurs more frequently as the system deteriorates and our synapses are not firing as effectively.
Sound Therapy is so effective for memory because it stimulates our neurons to fire and actually builds new brain connections. Our neurons, the unique cells that make up the brain, are connected by tiny branching filaments called dendrites, and longer ones called axons which link more distant parts of the brain. These connections use both electrical and chemical energy. New connections may be formed each time a neuron fires, so stimulating the neurons to fire actually builds and increases our neural network. Just to give you an idea of the immense intricacy of this network in your brain, let me give you some stats. There are as many neurons in your brain as there are trees in the Amazon rainforest. There are as many axons and dendrites connecting those neurons as there are leaves, on the trees in the Amazon rainforest.
