6 Get a CNS brain shunt--- then get busy w/ shunt, medical outcomes, and tons of neuroscience research. Pick up an instrument, start playing, and research & write about your experiences. 10/5/2011 STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN 6 HOW DO YOU BECOME AN EXPERIENTIAL NEUROSCIENTIST ON DRUMMING FOR THE BRAIN?

8 WHERE DOES MUSIC & RHYTHM COME FROM? 1. Time, space, movement, planetary, and gravitational influences (proprioception) on us – my theory on basketball. 2. Sounds of Earth, nature, birds, animals, accepted sounds and meaning (Jaws), development of language 3. Mimesis - Vocal intonations, expression, imitating others, entertainment, communications 4. Thought intent (pre-frontal cortex) – thought, communication, and expression; rhythm use likely began in mating rituals, social celebrations, war, games, etc. 5. Man made sounds, musical instruments, equipment, formation of established sounds eg. knock on door, rhymes and popular songs, Jaws theme * Two primary forms of music today: primal low-brain expression, forebrain story-telling STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN 8 10/5/2011

9 EVOLUTION OF DRUM COMMUNICATIONS 1.Animals and humans learned that when sound is in volume or tempo it is closing in and/or is in importance, calling attention, where slow or melodic sound tends to be friendly. Fast or repetitive sound tends to be forceful or threatening. Augmented sounds are appealing, and make us curious and/or happy. 2.Human sounds and drums evolved to disseminate information. 3.Sight, sound, and body movement patterns, along with words, eventually formed human language we know today. 4.Emotional intonations in words is termed prosody. 5.Since drum rhythms come from the body, they activate the prosody center of the brain in Wernickes area, and language centers in the pre-frontal cortex. 6.Rhythmic patterning and imitation is termed mimesis. 7.Correlation of audible patterning in brain waves to improved cognition: Mozart Effect 8.Modern day sports and music keep us connected to our past. STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN 9 10/5/2011

10 EXAMPLES OF MUSICAL RHYTHM 1.At a very young age, we are able to recognize sound as: Coming toward us. Moving away from us. Talking to us. Posing a question? Calling out! Frightening us. Or appealing to us. 2.Bass & Clapping BWE Exercise: heightens theta level brain waves 3.Walk and movement mirror heart beat of 1-2, 1-2, pushing off from one foot, land/turn on other. Marching and running are 1-2, 1-2 and Our brains (and body) have the unique ability to recognize and think in terms of patterns. Take these random letters/nos: XEZAEI34SSC. Say as a pattern, letters/nos in bold emphasis: X E Z (pause) A E I (pause) 3 4 S S C STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN /5/2011

11 BRAIN WAVES IN SYNC W/ MUSICAL RHYTHM STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN /5/2011

12 PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS ACHIEVE TRANCE-HEIGHTENED STATES DURING FMRI BRAIN IMAGING (A NIH & JOHNS HOPKINS STUDY) STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN /5/2011

13 Participants play structured and free-form rhythms w/ goal of reaching a common mindset, or brain wave entrainment (BWE), enabling group learning and tasking. Led today by trained facilitators & guidelines. To succeed in life, you must be engaged in what is happening around you, develop strategies to help your mind stay focused and engaged in what you are doing, rising above adversity and distraction. Group drumming is the platform where you learn to engage the rhythms of your brain, and engage your work and others around you. Modern Uses (see Modern Uses file) WHAT IS A DRUM CIRCLE? STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN /5/2011

14 HEALTH APPLICATIONS OF DRUM CIRCLES Socialization: confidence, mental health, intimacy, outreach, recreation, dispute resolution *,** Movement disorders: senior health, disorders, fitness, youth activities, sports training * Sensory integration: SPDs, cognitive development, music therapy* General Health & Wellness, Stress Reduction** Biofeedback: Management of chronic illness, cancer** BWE/Trance work: Behavioral modification*, ** * Dolle research ** B. Bittman, M.D. (Meadeville, PA, Research) STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN /5/2011

15 DRUMMING FOR THE BRAIN: SIX KEY AREAS Cognition/proprioceptionCognition/proprioception: my discovery was intuitive w/ hand/finger movements to sustain mental focus during driving, akin to Ricky Henderson base-stealing, broad IQ health benefits. Fingers, hands & body rhythms boost brain focus and mental output Movement/coordination: my discovery was intuitive, my choreographed movements by taping on hips, legs, counters, and engaged surfaces, play to move, SCI workshop, today use of basketball (likely aid autism). SI Therapy (In cases of SPDs): results were found in my 2002 SI study, was not drumming at the time, made therapeutic audiotape, later learned that drumming was aiding my SI tolerance, also benefits in learning (likely aid autism)my 2002 SI study Socialization: team-building, corporate, family, youth, community Language Development: learning of foreign language, non-verbal communications BWE/Trance StatesBWE/Trance States: team-building, health & disease mgt., behavioral modification, integrative medicine, mental health STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN /5/2011

17 Group BWE occurs p/ 8-10 min. Play of slow bass rhythms are conducive to Theta brain waves & trance states, good for team- building and behavioral modification.

19 STEAM3 CLASS DISCUSSION -- OCTOBER 6, 2011 Circadian Rhythms Circadian Rhythms (sleep wake cycle) are regulated by the Pineal Gland in the Brain. Circadian Rhythms follow an approx. 24-hr cycle and are found in each living cell. Music follows mathematics. Instruments + Arrangement + Variables = Balanced Sound Your Skills today are often due to Genetic Predispositions (GP), skills that are passed on from earlier ancestors, dating back almost 1M years. Modern Civilization mostly deals with last years. Discover your GPs thru Drumming and similar Free-Thinking activities. Create a 20-sec Elevator Pitch on who you are for your career prospects. 10/5/2011 STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN 19

20 A Drum Circle is a conversation: People (and students) are attracted to things that are Real and Cool. This Principal drives Participation and Dynamics within the Drum Circle.Drum Circle Drumming is Trusting your Instincts, Connecting with Others, Following the Cool, Engaging your Intent, Vocal Intonations, and Tempo (Rhythm). Students Entrain to their Teachers Intent, Tempo, Vocal Intonations, and Brain Waves. Know these and Engage your Students. Introduce Rhythmic Games & Participation. 10/5/2011 STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN 20 STEAM3 DRUM CIRCLE ON CAB FRONT LAWN Stephen Dolle Stephen Dolle demonstrates hands on play and brain wave entrainment (BWE) in this drum circle.

21 NEED FOR SPD AUDIO STD FOR AUDIO & NOISE BROADCASTS IN PUBLIC PLACES: MONITOR SOUND AS A TRIGGER Audio & noise emissions cause behavioral and medical sequela Audio & noise emissions cause behavioral and medical sequela in % of population. Need for an accepted standard or algorithm to RATE all audio & noise emissions for SI processing trigger potential, covering: - volume, - EQ, - rhythmic pattern & syncopation, - pitch frequency variation, - and percent of wave form at peak EQ. Worst = TV commercials, skateboards, machinery, loud music, busy places. STEPHEN DOLLE/ENGAGE THE RHYTHMS OF YOUR BRAIN /5/2011
