Introduction to the Brain for the practice of Ayres SI | Why this matters

To understand human development, participation in daily life and performance, you must understand the brain and how it works.  Listen to Dr Shelley Lane explain more about recent evidence and Ayres Sensory Integration here: CLASI Webinar Series. []

The brain develops and grows a genetic blueprint realised via lived experiences. Life is experienced through the senses. Without the senses, development and life are now possible.

Harlow’s early experiments with baby monkeys provide some early evidence of the importance of the senses to the development of creatures.  

Panksepp’s book Affective Neuroscience overviews and introduces us to more recent evidence and provides a summary of a body of knowledge that supports the importance of the senses from the field of neuroscience that further supports the importance of the senses and lived experience to human function and development of the systems needs to interact with the work and others, including the development of affect.
