Isochronic tones are a recent and exciting development in the area of brain entrainment software and CDs, used in up-to-date audio programs like the Brain Evolution System, and in its immediate predecessors like the Morry Method Quantum Mind Power system.Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change structurally and functionally with experience and use.Neuroplasticity underlies learning and memory – making it vital during early childhood development and important for continuous learning throughout life.Although prevalence is high, currently the mechanisms responsible for the development of chronic pain are poorly understood.Dr Ann-Maree Vallence, a University of Adelaide Postdoctoral Fellow in the Robinson Institute, has been undertaking studies to understand how changes in the brain, termed neuroplasticity, may be responsible for the transition from acute pain to chronic pain.
