NTEGRATION

Brain integration describes the coordination of information and activity between the different parts of thebrain, and between the brain and the body. When the brain is well integrated, the information flowssmoothly and activities can be completed easily. When the communication pathways in the brain havebecome blocked or shut down due to stress, the information flow is slower, and thinking and activitiesbecome more difficult.Brain Integration activities, such as Brain Gym, games and holding points, are a way of opening up thecommunication pathways in the brain, and between the brain and body. This can help make thinking moreclear, and performing tasks and activities easier to do.

NTEGRATION SO IMPORTANT
?
The brain has two complementary ways of processinginformation using the left and right brain.An oversimplified model would be that the left hemisphere of the brain is in charge of the fine detail and the action plan: thewho, what, when, where and why. The right hemisphere of thebrain is in charge of feelings, the general idea, spontaneity andintuition.New research tells us that as we begin an activity, only one sideof the brain, left or right, is activated. However, as we begin toprocess what is required for the activity, both hemispheres of the brain retrieve and analyse information and work throughthe ‘problem’ of completing the activity. Part of the brainknown as the corpus callosum acts like the bridge between the two hemispheres of the brain, coordinatingthe transfer of information between the left and right sides of the brain.While this information exchange is occurring in an integrated way we have easy access to recalling,retrieving and processing information. However when the bridges become blocked the whole informationexchange can slow down or stop, and the brain’s processing can become stuck” in one hemisphere.Notes:
