In a segment aired on CNBC’s Advancements TV on 21 September 2019, Forbrain was put under the spotlight as the show attempted to educate viewers as to how Sound For Life is empowering children and adults to reach their full potential, improve their quality of life through brain stimulation and truly making an impact on people’s lives. Advancements TV, presented by Ted Danson aims to explore recent developments in technology, manufacturing, sustainability etc. This episode particularly focused on Neurotechnology and devices that are being used to enhance cognitive skills.
This month I had the pleasure of speaking with Charlotte Davies, founder of a company called Fit-2-Learn, fierce researcher, and educationalist in England.

Short-term memory is the type of memory that holds onto information while we process it.
For example, while reading, we need to be able to remember the information at the beginning of a sentence in order to make sense of it once we get to the end.
Simply put, bone conduction is the process by which we perceive sound through bones in the skull.
The idea that the brain is a static organ is long forgotten. We now know that the brain is plastic, which means that it can change and grow.
Given what we know about the brain and its ability to change, there’s no question that exercise for your brain is just as important as exercise for your muscles. In fact, when exercised, your brain will react like a muscle and become stronger (don’t worry, your head won’t grow larger, just your brain cells!).
