What is Neurotiming?

It’s a term you’ve probably never heard of before, but it’s something you use every day. Neurotiming measures how quickly and accurately you process information and how well you can focus on demand. The better your neurotiming, the better your ability to process information, make quick decisions, and react.  A number of independent studies show neurotiming is a key predictor of:

  • mental processing and decision speed
  • focus and attention
  • coordination, balance and athletic precision

How Can Keeping a Beat Measure Neurotiming?

When your brain is forced to keep a beat to the millisecond by using a physical motion, like tapping or clapping, it uses both sides of the brain to coordinate this activity, forcing it to focus on accuracy using auditory and physical cues.  By doing this, your brain’s ability to use both focus and coordination are put to the test.  This gives you your neurotiming score. It may not seem intuitive at first, but when you think about it, we all learn our ABCs through rhythm and song.  That’s because using rhythm helps work both sides of your brain, which improves both focus and memory.
