Split Brain Experiments

Now if you have objections from watching the video, here is another link from nobel prize and an explanation from a Nobel Laureate Roger
Sperry on split brain experiments.

This has spurned another raging topic in my mind which is, if you separate the left and right brain cerebral hemispheres and commu...nication still impedes cognition with the brain and body but does not slow down how it is processed, what would this in turn do to a person in the short/long-terms? Mentally & physically? Is there a feeling of detachment? Could the findings be used to elaborate the details of brain function in correlation to mental health? If by constantly using only one hemisphere of the brain, would it lead to becoming a stressed organ? Thus creating epileptic seizures?

Anyway, here is the link: brain experiments


 Here is also a  video of the experiment hands-on:

Electrical engineering fixes brain's circuit board

Please take the time and read this article I found:

This method would speed up the process but it will not hold up throughout time, this to me is something like a stimulant that would make you feel a certain way until the "crash". The only way to cure mental health is by way of Rehabilitation Reform!

College and Education

I just want to let everyone know that today I was finally approved for financial aid! I have always wanted to succeed in school and learn but my disability served to hinder my studies, actually I could never sit straight or concentrate while in school previously in the past, even my little stint in college!

With my new found abilities I want to test them out to the fullest extent as this will be information towards my PhD of Rehabilitation Reform.

Why is it that there are people who are more adapted to studying than others? The answer is that if you want your brain to be functioning at that particular level you have to adhere to the positioning of mind and body, as previously stated in my other blog, if you want your brain to think straight your body has to be straight.

Just because you have naturally been blessed to be able to use your brain doesn't mean that you have to constantly stress the brain, which leads to mental breakdown and disorders, or even worse suicide. This has been a taboo in all countries striving to succeed on a educational level with asian countries like Korea and Japan to have high suicide rates among students, why is that? Because the pressure put on the children and the lengthy times that they study just to get into college is 10 times harder than it is here in the United States. The result of such practice is an overload on the brain because the body cannot support the mental intensity with physical intensity, the body works optimally when both the brain and body is functioning in unison.

Colleges around the country are starting to embrace the fact that suicides are the result of mental health issues and have non-profit groups to combat the growing threats of mental unrest. These non-profit groups are realizing that its not just a neurological problem but physical as well, they are on the right track as this is where my future is headed.

What your body is trying to tell you

Did you know that the brain subconsciously tries to realign the body and tell you that there is something wrong with yourself through emotions (anger, depression, anxiety, etc.). When you achieve self-awareness these emotions are well under your control, but lets say you sleep wrong and you toss and turn (which is the brain trying to realign the body) preventing your body from getting the much needed rest it needs, leading to a mix of emotions when you first wake up.

How do you help to relieve the tossing and turning? Which I used to do frequently to the point the bones in right shoulder area had converged together and as a result dislocated the bone in my shoulder blade causing excruciating pain that traveled from the front of my chest to my back (this was 20 years in the making of bad sleeping habits). I will take a pillow and place it underneath my lower back right above my butt, this will make it so that your back is stabilized to correct form, you might take several steps in figuring what size pillow will do. Doing this for the first night made worlds difference when I woke up, and my sleep has gotten deeper to where I wake up refreshed.

My body really was telling me at the age of 29 that there is something seriously wrong with you, when I looked into the mirror and had to shave my face there would only be a mustache on the left side of my face but nothing growing on the right side! Not only that but the hair on my head was telling me as well because the left side of my hairs would stand straight up while on my right side they would be lying down...Instead of just looking in the mirror and not paying attention to yourselves, pay close attention to details about you feel, only YOU know, and if everything seems to be confusing then you need to start rehabilitating your mind and body. Nothing is ever too late to start rehabilitation you can reverse the adverse effects your body is being put through, due to the fact that we know everything around us but nothing of ourselves.

Right now the facial hairs on my face are growing evenly and my hair has stood up from where it was limp! My body has improved beyond even my expectations of which all those who are friends and family even notice! Mentally I am growing everyday, it is as if everything that happens daily is a learning experience for me, even if I have done the same things daily as a routine, I am now able to rationalize and see things that I never saw before, understand things that I never understood. Which is why it is a big draw for me to get back into college, I think of college like a boxing match; I want to knock the professors heads off with my brain!

Rehabilitation Reform is on the rise and I am giving you guys an opportunity to learn about it before it gets commercialized, by then you would have to pay for services...I am not a doctor yet so my knowledge is free (I do take donations...trying to get into college and will accept any type of help from anyone, remember the best nation is DONATION!).

First post

To whom it may concern,

My name is Hai-Young Kim and I have achieved self-awareness through the process of rehabilitation reform that I have created.

So far my critics (family & friends) have taken into account with the change of myself, although it was a rough road, I have finally gained the attention I needed to prove that I have changed both physically and mentally.

In asian cultures (Korean in particular) they have just recently identified "autism" (asperger's, bi-polar, etc.) as a mental health disorder, of which in the society it was just accepted. Maybe this is why Asia is so prolific in creating ideas, especially when it comes to technology. The reason I say this is because nobody in my family had an inkling of an idea that I was autistic.

I had spoken to my mother about my childhood after browsing through the many pictures taken in the past, and to be specific I had asked her what happened to me at the age of 5. She had told me that while she was in Korea she received a call from my father saying that my jaw had turned to one side. In reality half my body was unusable, my neck was stiff causing my head to be turned to one direction (my left) and paralyzed for 2 weeks, then after my neck slowly returned to where I could turn my head left and right.

This effect caused me to lose focus on a lot of things, much less be able to control my body the way I wanted it to. My mind at this point was unable to process any kind of thinking, I could remember vaguely anything about my past except those that stand out, like being reprimanded for things I had done but did not understand that I was "doing" wrong.

After the incident which caused me to be disabled, my father decided that instead of taking me to a hospital to be treated he had taken me to a chiropractor (all of which my mom had to tell me so that I could better understand what happened to me.) to treat my symptoms. Unknowingly my father and mother pushed me as if I were a normal child, not knowing why their son had drastically changed from a mild and normal child to something that exploded every time a camera was shoved in my face (For some odd reason my brain was subconsciously letting me know that I was not right and I had felt ugly) or I was stopped from doing something that I was totally indulged into.

I was never able to make friends in school, more importantly I learned humility from not only the children in school but the fact that my parents kept wondering why I was not like the other children, and that misunderstanding can go only so far before we collide and separate. My parents divorce was inevitable.

These are excerpts from my book "Understanding ME"

I am writing these things so that I can give understanding to parents and those who are affected by mental health issues.
