Eye Tracking and Speed Reading
The best speed reading courses contain eye-tracking exercises and games that activate right brain function such as imaging and mass memory acquisition.
Through his independent research, Stephen Christman, a pschologist at the University of Toledo, Ohio, has shown that certain eye movements improve recall memory.
His research concluded that leftward eye movements activate right brain functions and rightward movements activate left brain functions. His research also suggests that horizontal eye movements improve memory by helping right and left functions interact.
As you read below, you will find three companies that offer learning methods and games that use this method of eye movement.
The Secrets Possessed by the Few
In Makato Shichida's Child Academies, we'll find young children flipping through books at high speed, taking tests on the book's subject matter, and getting high test scores.

The Follow That Dot accelerated learning games and Eye Tracking Exercise Cards on our Memory Magic CD (see bottom of this page) also use great eye tracking image memory techniques to stimulate powerful right brain functions.
The Secrets Behind Speed Reading Revealed
We found that these programs have something in common that few others possess: Exercises and games targeted for the right brain that strengthen eye-tracking, stimulate and activate right brain function such as imaging and mass memory acquisition. They also create strong connections between the right brain and the left brain's conscious recall function.
In short, true speed reading is your ability to store the "image" of pages or blocks of text through your right brain mind, and later be able to recall the information from those pages through your conscious left brain mind.
Sounds pretty amazing doesn't it? It is amazing but it's true! Below are some of the techniques used by Shichida, Infinite Mind and Mercury Learning that help us develop these abilities.
Accelerated Learning Techniques for Speed Reading
Strengthening Our Eye Muscles
To strengthen our eye muscles, we want use their unique eye-tracking exercises and games. They strengthen and expand the muscles used for vertical, horizontal, diagonal, global and field of vision. When we strengthen our eye muscles in this way, we're able to image faster and store larger blocks of text at a time. And, by using these accelerated learning techniques, we form strong connections between our subconscious right brain function and conscious left brain function, which leads to speed reading.
In addition, using these particular exercises and games are great for young children, those with eye-tracking difficulties of any age or learning ability.
Photographic High-Speed Imaging
Photographic high-speed imaging is a right brain function we can do very easily - children especially. In fact, everything we see is instantly stored in our subconscious right brain mind. The problem is, most of us don't have the ability to bring those image memories out to our conscious left brain mind at will; we haven't developed the right brain left brain connections that enable it.
That's why Shichida and Mercury Learning's exercises and games are so good. They have all developed unique accelerated learning techniquess that strengthen imaging abilities and memory recall. Some of their exercises even help you type faster and do other tasks faster and better due to the residual effects of enhanced right and left brain function.
For his training, Shichida's Academies use several different accelerated learning methods to unlock the power of the right brain. His techniques not only produce high-speed readers, but also children who can solve complex math problems instantly, recall hundreds of objects in sequential order, and play musical instruments well at a very young age (to name a few results of his training).
The Follow That Dot game on our Memory Magic Games CD (see below) is an addicting accelerating learning game that not only helps with eye tracking, but you are actually developing powerful right brain imaging functions then crossing over to left brain recalling of the patterns. It's so fun that the whole family will enjoy it together. The neat thing is you're developing your right brain photographic memory without even knowing it! There's seven levels and many different ways to play this game and only two teens have been known to consistently beat level seven!
