The human brain clock is intimately involved in wide array of human cognitive and motor behaviors. At this blog a number of clincal disorders have been associated with some degree of disturbance or damage to brain mechanisms related to mental timing. This informaiton is scattered across a variety of posts. I decided to pull it all together (as of today's date) in this post.
Mental timing (brain clock) has been implicated via research reported at this blog in:
ADHD and attention
Various speech and language disorders
Central auditory processing disorders (CAPD)
Reading disabilities/dyslexia (click here, here and here)
Various dopaminegeric-based disorders
Stroke related dysfunction
A more detailed reference list of timing-related dysfunctions/disorder (e.g., aging related disorders--Alzheimer's, dementia; ADHD, motor coordination/timing disorders--gait, stroke,swallowing; speech and language disorders--aphasia/stroke/apraxia/speech; TBI) can be found in special white paper regarding the efficacy of various rhythm-based interventions.
