Breathing Part 3A : Breathing Reflex Techniques to Support Stress Resilience and Neurodevelopment

Streaming Media › 365 day online viewing access

MNRI® techniques for oral motor reflexes to facilitate oral motor neurodevelopment. 
This lecture focuses on the interdependence of breathing, swallowing, and digestive functions during development. Relevant neuroanatomy and neurophysiology are presented with consideration to factors influencing breathing and swallowing coordination, such as prematurity, tongue/lip-ties, and neurological challenges. The rationale behind MNRI® techniques for oral motor reflexes to facilitate oral motor neurodevelopment are discussed.Presented by: Svetlana Masgutova, PhD and MNRI Creator, and Yichien Su, MS-CCC, SLP and MNRI Core Specialist

The positive impact of MNRI® breathing reflexes on neurodevelopment and daily well-being. 
This segment of the lecture is contextualized with a brief overview of the anatomy and physiology of cell and tissue oxygenation in internal and external respiration, and also illustrates the anatomy of blood vessels in the brain, including how various oxygen levels affect the growth and development of nervous tissues, or neurogenesis, in adults. Presented by: Laurie Longest, MS, PT, MNRI® Core Specialist, MNRI® Instructor
