What is Interactive Metronome?
Interactive Metronome® or IM is an assessment and training tool that improves synchronization in the brain. It involves learning to synchronize motor movement to an auditory stimulus (the metronome, or a regular, steady beat), and has been extensively proven in research to improve cognitive processing and focus. To learn more about the actual mechanism and how it works, you can visit www.interactivemetronome.com, where you can also find links to research on IM and its efficacy.
