Sensory Stories # 49: The Neuroscience of Sensory Intelligence®
Posted: 16 August, 2022

The brain is the most complex object in the universe. We have 100 billion nerve cells with infinite connections in our brains…. isn’t that amazing?! Sensory intelligence® is fully rooted in neuroscience, our work is based on the anatomy and physiology of the brain and how it works.
You have 7 senses involving receptors and pathways that connect to the central nervous system. These sense systems receive millions of bits of information from outside the body – through the environment in which we see, hear, smell, taste, touch/feel and move. When this information reaches the brain, it is processed by a hierarchy of systems. Sensory intelligence focuses on the primitive part of the brain, the area that sensory information reaches first. Our research centers around self-regulation through the senses as opposed to self-regulation through cognition. Watch the video to learn more.
