Dear all,
This is FANTASTIC!!!! Worth experiencing. Please try out.
WHILE SITTING AT YOUR DESK, LIFT YOUR RIGHT FOOT OFF THE
FLOOR AND MAKE CLOCKWISE CIRCLES
NOW, WHILE DOING THIS, DRAW THE NUMBER "6" IN THE AIR WITH
YOUR RIGHT HAND FINGER
YOUR FOOT WILL CHANGE DIRECTIONS (ANTICLOCKWISE) AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.
THIS WILL DRIVE YOU CRAZY
Have a crazy day!!
Cheers,
Rajat

oh Crap....how did this happen? Rajatji,where did u find abt this?....i am still surprised.... Too good, Regards, Sonit Singh
Dear brother Rajat,
This is an interesting experiment. Every one has realized it. But on the matter of brain, rewiring is possible. I shall post it in the next post.
Rewiring concept is very much necessary fot management professionals.
regards

Hi Sonit,
Please call me Rajat..n please don't add ji.. :D i feel like an old man.. :D
This was shared by one of the participants during my recent workshop on lateral thinking & Creativity in a B-school..
Yes, i was amazed and am trying to figure it in depth..shall share the same with you all..
Cheers,
Rajat
Dear Dr Mahanta,
Welcome back to the forum..nice to see your post after a long gap..its a pleasure to read your articles.
Surely we all look forward to your post on rewiring of the brain..
Regards,
Rajat

Hi Rajat,
Got it,will address you as Rajat henceforth, actually i saw that you are a Honoured member and felt that you might be quite elder to me so..
I would be waiting to see if you find out anything about this,coz even I will be trying to talk to few of my friends who are studying medicine.
Regards,
Sonit Singh

Thank you brother.
I am putting the experiment, that is, leg moving clock wise and hand moving anti clock wise in our ZERO PATHOLOGY GANGA group. When we succeed I shall post the results here. This is going to add to the knowledge in the newly emerged discipline called NEUROPLASTICITY.
Please also see my comments on the topic below on Chinese population and employment.

Hello , Mr. Rajat, That was really incredible. No matter how hard we try , .... It really drives one crazy. Moushmi
Hello Rajath... Delighted...... and thanks for the expeience.....! But why it happens so??? Any scientific explantion please......? Regards... Prof Radhakrishna M
Dear all,

My colleague from medical fraternity forwarded his theory:-

First, some science.

We'll keep this light and uncomplicated. Our brain, like the rest of our anatomy, is made up of two halves, a left brain a right brain. There's a big fold that goes from front to back in our brain, essentially dividing it into two distinct and separate parts. Well, almost separate. They are connected to each other by a thick cable of nerves at the base of each brain. This sole link between the two giant processors is called the corpus collosum. Think of it as a SCSI cable or network connection between two incredibly fast and immensely powerful computer processors, each running different programs from the same input.

The left side of our body is "wired" to the right side of our brain, and vice versa. For whatever reason nature did this cross-over, it applies even to our eyes, which process their sensory data on opposite sides of the brain.

We can thank Nobel Prize Winner (1981) Roger Sperry for this next contribution. Sperry conducted what are sometimes called the "split-brain" experiments. Here's how it went: A patient suffering from uncontrolled seizures had an area of his brain removed by surgery in an attempt to control his illness. This area just happened to be the corpus collosum, which was suspected of having developed lesions (short circuits).

Following his surgery, Sperry's patient seemed completely normal -- almost. A series of tests were conducted where each "half" of the patient was isolated from the other. Different visual and tactile information could then be presented to the patient's left or right side, without the other side knowing. The results were astounding.

With their communications link severed, each side of the patient's brain was functioning independently. Although this did not prevent his ability to walk, talk and eat, some unexpected findings were encountered in some of the higher brain functions when each side was examined independently of the other.

The right hand and eye could name an object, such as a pencil, but the patient could not explain what it was used for. When shown to the left hand and eye, the patient could explain and demonstrate its use, but could not name it. Further studies showed that various functions of thought are physically separated and localized to a specific area on either the left or right side of the human brain. This functional map is consistent for an estimated 70 to 95 percent of us.

The main theme to emerge... is that there appear to be two modes of thinking, verbal and nonverbal, represented rather separately in left and right hemispheres respectively and that our education system, as well as science in general, tends to neglect the nonverbal form of intellect. What it comes down to is that modern society discriminates against the right hemisphere.

-Roger Sperry (1973)

Upon completing the map, it was becoming clear to researchers that each side of the brain had a characteristic way that it both interpreted the world and reacted to it. The chart below will help illustrate the characteristics which are known to reside on each side of our brains.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS



uses logic

detail oriented

facts rule

words and language

present and past

math and science

can comprehend

knowing

acknowledges

order/pattern perception

knows object name

reality based

forms strategies

practical

safe

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS



uses feeling

"big picture" oriented

imagination rules

symbols and images

present and future

philosophy & religion

can "get it" (i.e. meaning)

believing

appreciates

spatial perception

knows object function

fantasy based

presents possibilities

impetuous

risk taking

Our personality can be thought of as a result of the degree to which these left and right brains interact, or, in some cases, do not interact. It is a simplification to identify "left brain" types who are very analytical and orderly. We likewise certainly know of the artistic, unpredictability and creativity of "right brain" types. But each of us draws upon specific sides of our brain for a variety of daily functions, depending on such things as our education and life experiences. The choices of which brain is in control of which situations is what makes our personalities and determines our character.

Experiments show that most children rank highly creative (right brain) before entering school. Because our educational systems place a higher value on left brain skills such as mathematics, logic and language than it does on drawing or using our imagination, only ten percent of these same children will rank highly creative by age 7. By the time we are adults, high creativity remains in only 2 percent of the population.

So we belong 2 % of the population!!

Cheers,

Rajat

Dear brother Rajat,
You have made a beutiful precis of brain functioning. But the last part remains to be updated. To update please find a quote from proessor Phil Norfleet:
"As I have become older, this area of study has become very near and dear to me. When I was a university student, most psychologists were teaching that the brain's hardwiring was locked into place at a fairly young age, i.e., by about the age of 12. Furthermore, it was believed that almost all creative work in mathematics and the hard sciences was done by young people, generally those under the age of 35. After 35, if you hadn't produced any significant new ideas in your chosen profession you probably never would. However, the new research seems to indicate that it is possible to rewire your brain in creative new ways throughout your entire life"
About neuroplasticity I have mentioned in several threads including this one.
regards
