The Zing Science
Zing Performance is a unique and effective program that can drive development and improve performance by focusing on a specific area of the brain, the cerebellum. With carefully designed activities that stimulate the cerebellum, Zing Performance unlocks the potential in the brain.
Unleash the power of "the brain's brain"
The power of Zing lies in recent discoveries about a part of the brain known as the cerebellum. Sometimes known as “the brain’s brain”, it is a small yet major brain region, at only 10% of the brain’s volume it holds 75% of the total neurons.
It is responsible for the automation of fundamental skills. These skills include those needed for reading, writing, listening, spatial awareness, language skills and social interaction. When these skills are not fully developed many everyday tasks become slower and harder to complete.
The Science Explained
Continuing to challenge, evolve & grow your brain
The Cerebellum begins to develop as soon as we are born. By continuously challenging the cerebellum through learning and physical activity, it continues to evolve and grow and tries to convert what we learn into automatic skill.
Some find that even though they repeatedly practice a new activity, they cannot convert it into an automatic skill. They’ve hit a glass ceiling. The cerebellum isn’t working to its optimal performance.
Why Developing the Cerebellum is so Important
Why is the Cerebellum so important?
Dr. Rutherford explains the evolution of the Cerebellum and the vital role it now plays in learning and skill development.
What is the Brain-Body Connection?
Dr. Rutherford explains why it is important to have the brain-body connection for developing new skills.
How do you develop the Cerebellum?
Different ways to stimulate and develop the cerebellum, how partially developed skills can improve and become automated.
