dr medical Alfred Tomatis 

Born in Nice in 1920, Dr. medical Alfred Tomatis is a specialist in ear, nose and throat medicine. Since the mid-1940s, alongside his medical practice, he has been involved in research on hearing impairmentpilotsandair traffic controllersoccupied.


This led him to the discovery that apart from pathological causes, one's own willingness to listen can also unconsciously alter one's auditory perception. In his further research, Prof. Tomatis was particularly interested in the connections between hearing and speaking and in particular in the influence of psychological perception on hearing.  


The conscious "listening" is improved and thus the ability to communicate is promoted

Dr.Tomatis developed a device (electronic ear) to promote listening andStimulating neuronal cooperation in the brain.The music is played through headphones with special sound vibrators(Mozart, Gregorian chant, sometimes also the voice of one's own mother)offered for a long time. This supplies the cerebral cortex with energy for concentration and creativity, and trains the middle ear muscles.

Seine  Entdeckungen  wurden  am  Physiologie-Labor  der _cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_Sorbonne  bestätigt  und  in den Jahren 1957 und 1960 der Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Akademie für _cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_Medicine presented in Paris. 

The TOMATIS method is based on several theories about how a person develops, how they process information, how they communicate with themselves and with others and finally how they learn._cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_The Electronic Ear developed for this purpose was officially presented at the Brussels Universal Exhibition in 1958, earning its inventor the gold medal for scientific research and, in 1962, the "Grande Medaille de Vermeil" from the city of Paris._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_
