llike an internal clock, or a set of multiple clocks working in unison.
If you look at how a clock works it requires a lot of precision and synchronization.
If you open the clock’s back cover you’ll see a lot of gears moving at different
speeds. It is impressive to see so many different gears of different sizes, moving
at different speeds and often in opposite directions, somehow working together to
produce a single result—the accurate movement of the clock’s hour, minute or second
hands. The clock’s timing gears have to work in unison in a precise way for the clock
to keep the right time.
If those gears didn’t keep proper time we’d always be late for school or work, we
wouldn’t know how long to keep something cooking in the oven and we could not be
relied on to accurately carry on with our daily tasks.
Much like the gears in a clock, different areas of the brain need to work together
in a synchronized manner to produce an organized, well coordinated response to a
task. The brain parts need to have good synchronized brain rhythm. Some young children
who are deemed “clumsy” or “slow” in fact have an internal clock that is not well
synchronized. Other times an injury or illness causes our internal timing to be thrown
off. Either way therapy is typically prescribed
to improve the functions that are impaired.
The human brain is a marvelous timing machine. It coordinates time in hours, minutes,
seconds and fractions of seconds. Our sleep cycle, the way we walk, our rate of speech
and even how we type or write by hand all involve precise timing controlled by the
brain. This happens because the brain is functions
