You have all got me remembering and wondering if any of you have heard
of a program called Brain Gym? It purports to enable anyone to exercise
both sides of the brain and increase all brain activity. There is a
whole series of exercises involving crossing over the mid line of the
body, i.e., the left elbow to the right knee. It was rather an amazing
experience as I am a relentless right-hander, and when I started the
exercise, I automatically raised my right knee to my right elbow! It
took conscience effort to cross over.
Another interesting exercise was writing, drawing, with two pens, one in
each hand to obtain symmetry. I did it on the board for my students who
briefly thought I was a magical being until they tried it and found they
could do it too. I will look for my books and if anyone would like the
info, e-mail me, and I will send it out.
