Master the Neuroscience of Learning in 60 Seconds

Neuroscientists like to use the phrase “neurons that fire together, wire together” to explain how learning happens in the brain. Let's unpack it.

To learn anything, it’s not enough for just one neuron to fire — many neurons need to fire at the same time.

The first time you try something new — whether you’re shooting free throws or learning times tables — your neurons have a weak connection. They don’t know how to talk to each other efficiently yet.

After a lot of repetition, these neurons build a strong connection — they wire together. When one neuron fires, the other neurons fire, automatically.

This explains how any skill becomes automatic — through practice and repetition.

With neurostimulation, neurons fire more often, so they’re more likely to fire together — and wire together. That means your free throws or times tables will become automatic in less time.

Neurostimulation accelerates learning — so you need less practice time and fewer repetitions to master any skill.

Test neurostimulation for yourselfHalo Sport is the first brain stimulator for athletes, musicians, and anyone with a movement goal.
