Lights, camera, action! We want to make you the movie star in your very own IM Video clip!
You will have the opportunity to make your own commercial at the IM Professional Conference in San Antonio this October 26-28! With websites, YouTube and social media sites it’s imperative to get yourself on the digital stream. We know that a production studio is expensive and creating your own video can come out like a Blair Witch production, so let the pros do it for you!
You’ve heard about him, you’ve read his blog posts, and now you can meet him in person at the IM Professional Conference 2012 in San Antonio, TX October 26-28!
…drum roll…Dr. Kevin McGrew A.K.A. The Time Doc2
Dr. McGrew will be the Keynote speaker for the Conference and we excited to have him lead the conference with the Presentation:
I think...therefore IM
Based upon a review of IM-specific research, personal experience with IM-Home, and a review of neurocognitive and brain-timing research, Dr. McGrew has developed a set of research and theory-based hypotheses regarding the cognitive demands and cognitive benefits of IM training. In this presentation, Dr. McGrew will provide an update on the most current evidence for how IM invokes and trains controlled attention (focus), working memory, executive functions, and more efficient brain network communication.
The "why" of the cognitive benefits of IM training (e.g., controlled attention; selective on-demand focus; quieting the busy mind; increased neural or brain efficiency) will be placed in the context of contemporary cognitive neuroscience research and theory.
Andrew was adopted in 2000 from Russia...he was 4 years old. (He is now 15 years old.) He had an un-repaired cleft palate, profound hearing impairment, severe malnutrition, profound insomnia of unknown origin, severe sensory dysfunction at time of adoption, along with intestinal infections (parasites and h. pylori). Andrew's had triennial neuropsychological testing, both privately and through the school district routinely since he joined our family in 2000. Through these evaluations, he's been diagnosed with PDD/NOS (pervasive developmental disorder/not otherwise specified), dysgraphia, attachment disorder, institutional autism, gross motor planning impairment, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), severe visual motor deficits, and RAD (reactive attachment disorder), emotional disorder among other things...
Renee Williams and her 5-year-old son Cameron submitted the winning name for our mascot: IM Buddy! Cameron and his mother Renee have never gone through the Interactive Metronome program and they are really exited to start their IM-Home sessions with one of our IM-Home providers. Renee, stumbled upon our IM-Home website and after reading and seeing that IM-Home would be very beneficial to her son, she took a chance to register for our contest at our Facebook page “Hope for ADHD.”...
As diagnoses of Autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD, and ADD are on the rise in the clinical setting, many parents are struggling to understand these conditions, and simultaneously searching for tools to provide their children with the best possible future.

The school day was over, but in a classroom tucked away at a far end of Rio Real Elementary School in Oxnard, CA, a group of 10 students were just getting started. Many of them were hovering around two rows of computers being set up with cables connected to a white box, strange-looking hand sensors and mats. At least, they were strange-looking to me. These kids, ages 7 and 8, were part of the Boys and Girls Club Hardy Brain Camp Training Program, and this was their last...
Brain or neural efficiency: Is it quickness or timing?
It is time I return to where I first started the description of my journeyto understand Interactive Metronome (IM) and the human brain clock. To recap, I firstbecame interested in the human brain clock after consulting on a school-based IM intervention study that produced positive results. Next, I reviewed research and theory that suggested that for a brain-clock based intervention (IM) to work across multiple human performance domains, the technology must be modifying some form of jack-of-all-trades central brain mechanism. I subsequently was excited to discover research that suggested that the human brain clock could be fine-tunedvia non-drug interventions. Finally, it was the research discovery described below that sealed my fate as a scholar interested in the applied potential of brain-clock based neurotechnology interventions.
Well 2011 has gone by, and now we have a whole fresh 2012 ahead of us! This is the time of year when we all make New Year’s resolutions to get healthier and fit. I think that it’s time that we include some brain fitness! Let’s face it; no one is getting any younger! There are many programs out there promising improved brain fitness and memory, but which one should we use? IM or IM-Home could be a good match for you. It has the research and case studies to back it up and has been around for many years now!
