OUR BRAIN


Many scientists already have written about our brain and I’m not going to write down what they have done. It’s up to them and believe me, they did. There are only two professors which I like the work of, about their knowledge of the brain. Professor D. Swaab from The Netherlands and professor A. Snyder from Sydney Australia. I’m sure there are many more interesting books in the world, but I must confess: “I hate reading books!”


But then there is my knowledge, which can’t be found in the books or on the internet. Things in the brain that have a logical explanation that they are there. Because of the fact I can’t get my knowledge to University, I publish it in this article and perhaps there will be universities who are looking into it.



At the left side of the prefrontal area there is a small place in the brain that acts like a small memory which starts its work when a human is 2-3 years old. I’m convinced this small memory is also in the brain of animals, like cats, but there it starts earlier in life. I presume around the age of 6-7 months. It’s similar with the long term memory, in which it gets to learn the survival of its being. To set the human to independent life. You might ask yourself: “Why is this set into a small memory?” The human will need that at the age of 70-80 years old to set the body to a next stage. I know it from my cat, who was getting old. She was ready to accept the end of her life. After more than 18 years she finally died. It felt as if she knew it was her end. And it’s the same with human. All things in the body are prepared for the end and also in the brain. I’m talking here about a healthy human. It seems there aren’t any of them near me, but I’m sure there are. That little place in the brain also has another important function. In combination with a special treatment it’s able to produce a transmitter substance which has influence on the cells in the body. {Can’t find the proper word in English for transmitterstof – In the dictionary there isn’t a translation available. Neurotransmitter will do}


Another important knowledge is about our memory. As we know we have a short term and a long term memory. Everything we see, smell, feel, hear, is getting into the short term memory, labeled very fast and brought to the long term memory. If it’s not important, the chance is there, it will be forgotten or it will come into our mind when we don’t need it anymore. But what about the moment the connection between our short term and long term memory is gone or is getting damaged. Take for instance a whiplash or even worse Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and so on. With a whiplash the opportunity is there that the connection will come back. In my knowledge it’s possible to bring back the memory in the brain without using the short term memory. It’s done with a method in which the memory is set to work. You don’t give a word, feeling, visual or smell to the person you want to help, but you give a word that looks different than the language we use. I’m not giving the working of the method here in this article, because it must be done carefully. But it’s possible to set the long term memory to work to get memory back. It’s even possible for such a configuration to find out if people are pretending their loss of memory.


And then there is a central system behind the Central sulcus, on both brain halves. It takes care of the control of the glands. We know that some glands don’t do their work properly, for instance at Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. The glands are not the source that are making the problem, but it’s in the control of the glands. It’s not a specific fixed place in the brain, but I could name it in the somesthetic association area. Most important controls are in the right brain half and the more less important controls are in the left half. It’s possible to test this at a university. I’ve written a test (in Dutch) to see what’s happening with the glands in the body. Perhaps I will write it in English when asked by a university outside of The Netherlands.
