Hemispheric Specialization of left brain and right brain
In the 1960’s a doctor removed the corpus callosum for some patients who suffered from seizure. Dr. Roger Sperry studied these patients. He discovered that the left brain and the right brain specialized in different modes of thinking and perceiving. Dr. Sperry won a Nobel prize for this breakthrough research.
The left brain is the logical part. It controls speech, words, language. It is methodical and tends to think in step-by-step logical fashion.
The right brain is the creative part, it thinks in images and colors, and it can remember complex pictures and songs (music). It thinks in intuitive way rather than logical way.
Is it not surprising that we can recognize hundreds or thousands of songs? This fact proves that we all have excellent memory, but we just do not know how to use it for study and exams.
These two half brains do not work like separate departments, but in an interconnected and collaborating way. The left brain and the right brain exchange information through the corpus callosum.
The left brain controls the right part of the body and the right brain controls the left part of the body. The left brain is the manager, the critical thinker, the accountant, etc.
Children use both the left brain and the right brain. As a result of the emphasis on left brain activities in our schools, our ability to use the right brain is reduced.
Many of the techniques in this course teach you how to use both of your right brain and left brain together. And as a result of using my techniques, you will learn to use more of your brain power.
Using your whole brain:
Left brain and right brain working together
Usually the left brain and the right brain waves are independent. They reach peaks independent of each other. During meditation and deep relaxation as well as using mind technologies (such as special music or mind machines), the left brain waves and the right brain waves tend to move together. For both, the peaks are reached together. This is called synchronization. Scientists now believe that synchronization makes much greater mind power available. This is associated with learning large amounts of information very quickly as well as with creativity.
So, we strongly recommend learning relaxation techniques, meditation as well as using our Mind Machines.
