Listening therapy with the Tomatis® Effect - 3D

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
The TOMATIS method is a pedagogical method used to improve the listening of a person whose hearing functions correctly It works thanks to a device that causes musical contrasts by suddenly and unpredictably changing the timbre and intensity of the music This effect will surprise the brain and trigger its attentional mechanisms we say that the brain puts itself in the listening position Sound is transmitted through air via the ear canal It is also transmitted by vibration at the top of the headset This vibration is called bone conduction Bone conduction transmits the sound directly to the inner ear, thus preparing it to receive the sound transmitted through the ear drum The switch to channel 2 causes the muscles of the ear to tense Conversely the switch back to channel 1 let these muscles relax Thus the muscles of the ear are subjected to a gymnastic exercise In this way the stirrup muscle tenses and relaxes thanks to the Tomatis effect improving the regulation of the inner ear and playing a role of preparation More generally it is the entire auditory system that is stimulated by the sudden change of timbre and intensity The vestibule and the cochlea have a fundamental role of providing energy to the brain In the cochlea, high frequency sounds stimulate the brain much more than low frequency sounds Channel 2 will strongly activate the lower part of the cochlear duct and thus favour the reception of high frequencies and their transmission to the brain This transmission takes place to the transformation of the accoustic vibration that is perceived into electrical stimulation The electrical message is transmitted to the auditory cortex and the peripheral cortical areas there are directly connected to the prefrontal cortex The latter integrates and analyzes the information received In return this integrated information is directed back to the ear favouring not only the perception of the accoustic information and the ability to focus on it
