INTEGRATED LISTENING SYSTEM (ILS)

Although the human body is made up of a lot of individual parts, the most impressive part is undoubtedly the human brain. Many scientists feel that it does not have an equal anywhere in the known universe. What many people don’t realize about the brain is that it is not stagnant, in fact, it continues to change in response to various types of stimulation. This is not something that only happens when we are children, it continues to occur throughout our entire life. In order for this to take place, however, sometimes we need to use a process known as integrated learning systems.

Although the process of integrated learning systems is quite complex, you can really think of it as being an organization of both the body and the brain. It prepares you for higher functioning in your cognitive abilities, such as an improvement in memory, being able to read more readily or to pay attention. In addition, for individuals who tend to work at a high level of stress on an ongoing basis, it can allow you to calm down and to self-regulate your stress to a large degree.

The basic science behind the integrated learning systems method is neurological. This science involves how the brain changes and grows in response to any type of stimulation we are receiving from the environment. Neural pathways are constantly being formed and these can change the way that you think, act and even feel. As a result, integrated learning systems use a simultaneous approach that is multi-sensory and continues to repeat in order to form those neural pathways.

You can no longer think of your senses as being independent of each other. Although we use our ears to hear, our eyes to see and our mouth to taste, we also receive input from all of our senses when any of those are activated. In order to improve your cognitive function, you can use integrated learning systems and they can help to improve brain development, regardless of whether you just want to improve it for your own needs or if you are experiencing problems.
