This is a link to the transcript of a Catalyst Report which is about the Synaesthesia. This use of the term Synaesthesia is basically the same concept that NLP has had from many years ealier. See our previous article on Synaesthesia to understand a little more about the concept from both an NLP perspective, and also from other research teams in Sydney. The interest in this documentary is mainstream research of synaesthesia going on in Australia. The researchers also propose that synaesthetes have extra brain regions devoted to colour imagery. I am not sure if they are getting their information … Continue reading Synaesthesia
The Monthly – AUSTRALIAN POLITICS, SOCIETY & CULTURE Below are two links to videos of a presentation which is about the Synaesthesia. This use of the term Synaesthesia is basically the same concept that NLP has had from many years ealier. In NLP, the phenomenon of “overlap” has many applications, but specifically it is where we are either as a practitioner observing a synaesthesia, bringing awareness of the synaesthesia to client to, or undoing the connections between the senses. We can “overlap” an image and a sound or feeling together, for example. In the broad sense, a synaesthesia can be … Continue reading Synesthesia: Hearing colours, tasting sounds.
Cautions for fMRI Researchers – evidence that dead Salmon produce some brain activity may start correction and re-checking fMRI studies. Hopefully, all advances in this area will produce greater evidence that can be relied upon for how neural activity can be studied in more depth. fMRI studies on dead Atlantic Salmon and the research poster on the study. As summarised by Neuroskeptic, “…but not everyone uses multiple comparisons correction. This is where the fish comes in – Bennett et al show that if you don’t use it, you can find “neural activation” even in the tiny brain of dead fish. … Continue reading Neural Activity Advances – fMRI Researchers Cautioned
This is a fascinating study of a sever epilepsy patient, who had his left and right brains surgically disconnected, and the expeirments they were able to do with him revealed a lot about the way our two hemispheres normally interact. Continue reading Communication between right and left hemispheres of the brain
Harvard psychiatary research – 20 minute video where Jill Bolte Taylor gives a very good description of the right and left hemisphere function… as it relates to her own experiences too. YouTube – How it feels to have a stroke Alternative, shorter version: Continue reading What we can learn from stroke patients about right/left brain
