Balance is a crucial and central component of the
Learning Breakthrough Program™. In order to
understand why the program focuses so much on balance
stimulation, the central role played by the sense of balance
(vestibular system) must be thoroughly understood. As a baby
grows in the womb, the vestibular system is the first sense to
develop, and serves as an critical, common organizational tool
around which other brain processes then develop.
system gets its raw information from the vestibular organs,
which consist of three semicircular canals and the otolith
organ. The three semicircular canals are oriented along the x,
y, and z axes, and define motion on each of the three
dimensions of space. When the head moves, hair cells (scilia)
detect the motion of the fluids inside each canal. The brain
uses this information to calculate changes in inertia, in much
the same way that the inertial navigation system on an
airliner senses changes in position and velocity. The otolith
organ uses a pendulum-like appendage, the utricle, to orient
the sense to the vertical force of gravity.
vestibular system combines the inertial information from the
three semi-circular canals with the gravitational orientation
provided by the otolith organ, it is the basis of our inertial
gravitational model of the world—that is, our model of the
world as a three-dimensional space with a clear sense of up
and down. As a child continues to develop in the womb, the
other major brain systems (motor, tactile, auditory and
visual) also develop, but they develop in relation to the
vestibular system, or sense of balance.
vestibular system plays such a key role in the foundation of
perceptual abilities, balance problems can cause many,
seemingly unrelated, problems in brain function. Click
here to learn how the Learning Breakthrough Program™ can address a wide
range learning difficulty symptoms by working to improve this
basic building block of brain function.
