Integration Between the Hemispheres

On August 20, 2008 in

The sensorimotor connects the two sides of the brain together so there is integration and communication between the two hemispheres. The sensorimotor network lays lengthwise along the midline of the brain and covers both the left and right hemispheres.  It is well known that when the sensorimotor is under active the overall brain functionality is impaired. Through exercising and activating the sensorimotor rhythm brain integration and functionality improves. Increased intercommunication enables for higher brain functioning.

When the senorimotor in underactive the individual is unable to inhibit motor responses adequately when exposed to stimuli. The body reacts and responds to inner/outer stimulus easily, without a mechanism to inhibit, the physical body becomes hyperactive and depending on surrounding stimulus it is difficult to physically relax.
