Have you heard people say that they tend to be right-brained or left-brained?
According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. For example, a person who is “left-brained” is often said to be more logical and analytical while a person who is “right-brained” is more creative and intuitive.
It was psycho-biologist Dr. Roger Sperry, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1981, who discovered that the human brain has specialised functions on the right and left, and that the two sides can operate the body almost independently. Today, neuroscientists have confirmed that the two sides of the brain work together to perform a wide variety of tasks.
Two other1906 Nobel Prize winning scientists in Physiology and Medicine, Golgi and Cajal, discovered that the nervous system and brain are mainly built up of nerve cells called Neurons. Neurons are specialised to transmit information throughout the body and are responsible for different tasks.
The human brain has more than hundred billion neurons which are connected to each other through an infinitely complex network of nerve processes. The message from one nerve cell to another is transmitted through different chemical transmitters and the signal transduction takes place in special points of contact, called synapses. A nerve cell can have thousands of such contacts points with other nerve cells. The human brain has trillions of synapses forming a complex and flexible network that allows us to feel, behave, and think.
Science suggests that new synaptic connections are created in the brain every time you form a memory of any activity, audio, visual, smell, taste or touch. Today, most experts believe that memory creation is associated with the strengthening of existing connections or the growth of new connections between neurons.
People who engage in mentally stimulating activities are less likely to develop dementia and people with higher educational statuses tend to have more synaptic connections in the brain
The Interbrain is the smallest region and most important part of the brain that connects both left and right brain functions. To use the brain’s full potential, it is necessary to activate the Interbrain.
While it was acknowledged that the Interbrain functions as a higher center of the autonomous nervous system, it was Walter Rudolf Hess, Nobel Prize winner in Physiology or Medicine in 1949 who mapped out these functions in detail.
Interbrain activation promotes whole brain development which contributes to an individual’s overall intellectual, emotional and thereby, social development.
Impact of Interbrain
The Interbrain is in charge of controlling the entire human organism including the viscera. It acts as a control tower of consciousness and is equipped with highly advanced intelligence. If a person develops his Interbrain, he will acquire a memory that will never let him forget whatever he has seen or heard once.
To use the brain’s full potential, it is necessary to activate the Interbrain by stimulating a hormonal discharge. For this, it is necessary to send special vibrations or sound waves to the pituitary gland which is responsible for regulating hormone secretions.
Sound waves have been found to be very effective as they enable the neurons to fire up. Experts have been emphasising on the importance of sound waves and brain entrainment since a long time.
A stimulated interbrain would be able to process information much faster and efficiently.
Neurons communicate electrically. The combination of millions of neurons sending signals at once creates an enormous amount of electrical activity in the brain. This can be detected using sensitive medical equipment (such as an EEG). The combination of electrical activity of the brain is commonly called a Brainwave pattern, because of its cyclic, ‘wave-like’ nature. These brainwaves are known as:
Beta emitted when we are consciously alert, or feel agitated, tense, afraid; frequencies range from 13 to 60 pulses per second in the Hertz scale
Alpha when we are in a state of physical and mental relaxation, although aware of what is happening around us; its frequency is around 7 to 13 pulses per second
Theta is a state of somnolence with reduced consciousness; more or less 4 to 7 pulses
Delta when there is unconsciousness, deep sleep or catalepsy; emitting between 0.1 and 4 cycles per second.
