Mind Operation Models
Lozanov's success can be traced to the way the brain operates. There are several theories to explain why adding music or other sensory stimulation increases the retention of learning.
Triune Brain Model
The triune model of how the brain processes information divides it into three layers, one superimposed upon the next. The three layers are:
Reptilian Brain or Brain Stem
This handles most sensory input and is connected to the higher-level functions. This portion of the brain evolved more than 500 million years ago.
