HSP: Height Sensory Perception

HSP is an acronym for heightened sensory perception. KIBS has found that through training, we can increase the amount of sensory information available to consciousness. For example, we have found that HSP trainees can recognize colors, shapes or letters, without ordinary amounts of visual sensory input.

As yet we do not know what sensory modality or brain mechanism mediates HSP. Based on training experience, we are confident that it is not the unique gift of a few special people but rather an undeveloped potential of the brain, available to anyone in principle.

The HSP development program includes both physical and mental trainings. The landmarks reached prior to development of HSP are stress management, emotional self-control, absence of negativity, self-confidence, and power of concentration.

KIBS is currently conducting research on the rate of development of HSP skills, neural mechanisms of HSP (as demonstrable by functional MRI), and electroencephalographic correlates of HSP.

She also says scientists have found that music stimulates more parts of the brain than any other human function. That's why she sees so much potential in music's power to change the brain and affect the way it works.

One technique, known as melodic intonation therapy, uses Music to coax portions of the brain into taking over for those that are damaged. In some cases, it can help patients regain their ability to speak And because of how we associate music with memories, Mannes says such techniques could also be helpful for Alzheimer's patients.

Many musicians have an instinctive understanding of how musical sound interacts with our bodies. They know — they feel — that sound impacts our bodies in a way no other art does. Opera singer Irene Gubrud says, "As a very young child, I experienced who I was through sound. I felt whole."
