In this video I talk about how the brain responds to rhythm at different tempos. At very slow tempos you need a constant pattern, whereas at faster tempos you need variability. To illustrate this, I show you how I adjust my rhythms across the continuum of tempos used for drumming.
In this video Jeff shows how he approaches the three types of sensory processing issues – hyper-sensitivity, hypo-sensitivity, and sensory discrimination.
He plays examples of various drumming rhythms to influence these sensory responses and describes how hyper and hypo sensitivity fits into an REI Custom Program.

Activating the brain for memory and cognitive enhancement can be done two ways:
1. Play pleasingly variable patterns with an unpredictable, yet musical quality at 8 beats per second. This has an immediate activating effect and, coupled with progressively more complex patterns over a series of recordings, can provide long-term cognitive enhancements. This is the approach we use for the REI Custom Programs.
2. Play various tempos all within the alpha range of 8-12 beats per second (bps). Musically, 8-12 bps is 120-180 beats per minute when playing 16th notes and one beat of the metronome is a 1/4 note. This means that you are playing 4 drumming beats for each click of the metronome. This approach is the key to the Brain Boost category on brainshiftradio.com.
I end this video with a cognitive enhancement drumming session. Let it play quietly in the background and see how mentally clear you feel afterward.
