“In today’s hectic world, it is easy to become overwhelmed; inTime has helped me to think in a clearer and more organized way meaning I am less overwhelmed and better able to juggle daily life.” This is some of what Suzanne of Halifax, United Kingdom had to say about her experience during the inTime preliminary clinical trial.
inTime is a rhythm-based music listening method developed to influence brain performance.
Prior to Advanced Brain Technologies’ release of this new method we conducted a preliminary clinical trial examining the effects of inTime on children and adults with a wide range of abilities. We investigated immediate and short-term gains achieved listening to one percussion period of the recommended protocol. Participants ages 3-90 with normal hearing participated in the online study listening to forty 9-minute sessions of percussion based music through headphones, twice daily, five days per week over the course of four continuous weeks. 58 participants from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and Mexico have completed the study thus far with diagnosis including; mild cognitive impairment, dementia, alzheimer’s disease, ADHD, SPD, APD, hyperacousis, autism, anxiety, depression, TBI, stroke, learning disabilities, dyslexia, coordination disorder, developmental delay, dyspraxia, receptive/expressive language disorder, aging issues, and those with no diagnosis.
Data still needs to be analyzed; and reports thus far are subjective with participants commonly reporting:
- mood elevation
- reduced sadness
- better sense of rhythm
- more focused
- increased energy
- improved speech and language
- improved timing
- less stressed
Most reported they wanted more daily listening and were disappointed when the trial ended, very much wanting to continue the daily listening practice.
One young child on the autism spectrum reported being uncomfortable with the music and discontinued listening. Two older adults indicated this type of music was not their preference, and that they preferred the classical music of The Listening Program®. These were the only unfavorable responses reported.
These results are encouraging given only 25% of the recommended protocol was completed, and without the activity component of the method. This research is still in progress.
