- Did you know an ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain?
- Did you know that even though your brain weighs 2% of your total body weight, it uses 25% of all oxygen you breathe and 15% of your body’s blood supply?
- Did you know the average human brain contains around 78% water?
- Did you know that when recognizing a persons’ face you use the right side of your brain?
Our brains are so intricate and interesting! Let’s look at the CEREBRUM which is the largest part of our brain; it is divided into four sections or lobes.
The FRONTAL lobe is used for expressive language, reasoning, cognition, and motor skills. Any damage to this lobe can result in changes in socialization, attention, and behavior.*
Tactile senses like pain, pressure, and touch are processed in the PARIETAL lobe. Any damage to it can cause problems with language, ability of controlling eye gaze, and verbal memory.*
The duty of the OCCIPITAL lobe is to interpret the information gathered from the eyes. If this area is damaged, the visual ability becomes so impaired that the person is unable to recognize words, colors, or objects.*
The TEMPORAL lob is responsible for our memories and processing sounds recorded by our ears. If damaged, our language skills, speech perception, and memory is affected.*
SOI is frequently asked the question, “Can you help?” The answer is definite yes!
We have used the IPP program and memory training in brain damaged and trauma victims, but scientific research and documentation has not been established. We do know that the process is long and often times painfully frustrating to the client based on personal reports we have received, but results have happened.
WHY? BECAUSE SOI TRAINS THE BRAIN!
If you are working with a trauma victim using the SOI theory, we would love to get your input and results to share with others.
