Emotion Location In The Brain, Depends On Hand Dominance

‘Approach Motivation’

This is cool. Particularly if you work with people to reduce stress and/or increase motivation. And it suggests some interesting uses for, and experiments with, PS. I first learnt about brain hemispheric dominance many years ago while training in NLP and discovering that by calibrating to someone’s eye movements (a more accurate method than just assumptions based on tendencies for left and right-handed people) that you could create a very accurate lie detector test for that person based on which hemisphere of the brain someone stored remembered rather than made up images and sounds. As a general rule, it was usually opposite hemispheres for left or right-handed people. Here’s another study that shows an extension of that idea. It’s worth pointing out here also that there are two main motivation styles that people use.., moving away from what they don’t want; and moving toward what they do want (which in general is a less stressful motivation strategy). Current brain stimulation therapy suggests that the right hemisphere is responsible for retreat and defence emotions and the left is responsible for the approach and moving forward emotions and that therefore an effective treatment for certain mental disorders is to stimulate the left hemisphere and encourage motivation based on moving toward goals. This study shows however that the therapy model was based on testing with primarily right-handed people and that the side of the brain that needs the stimulus is opposite for left-handed people and ineffective for ambidextrous (right and left reasonably equal) people. This is known as the sword and shield hypothesis. IE: In a sword fight a right-handed person would attack (approach) with the sword in the right hand and defend (retreat) with the shield in the left hand. NOTE: The left side of the body is right brain hemisphere dominant and vice versa. So there is a crossover from left brain to right function and right brain to left function. FOR PS USE; Knowing this we could potentially have another tool for helping people with stress and motivation. So we could experiment with both standard practices of both eyes receiving stimulation; and then we could also cover the left eye (with some sort of light-shielding patch) for right-handed people (and cover right eye for left-handed people) and use a program like MOTIVATE to encourage approach, moving forward type motivation. Could be a cool experiment. I’ve summarised the article it and added to it and made it easier to understand (I hope, lol). as.cornell.edu/news/left-right-and-center-mapping-emotion-brain
