THERAPIES, ACTIVITIES, AND THEMES FOR ATTRIBUTES SHARING COMMONALITIES ASSOCIATED WITH HOMOLATERAL NEUROPHYSIOLOGY
As Vertebrates continued to express increasingly complex movement patterns based on bilateral coordination, at some point they evolved to a point where their movements included the ability for the bilateral asymmetry which is observed in many Mammals. One profound attribute of this development was the shift from lateral flexion/extension of the spine to anterior/posterior flexion/extension. This is most apparent is the difference in locomotion between fish (who push themselves forward side to side), and Sea Mammals (who push themselves forward front to back). This is discussed in more depth in the paper on Undulation. Bilateral asymmetry enabled the three-point gait which has been essential for the emergence of Mammal’s domination of their surroundings, facilitating an unparalleled degree of freedom of movement. In us, these movement capabilities are expressed in our ability to express actions like throwing a ball, where both sides of our bodies combine separate movement patterns into a holistic action. These bilaterally asymmetric movement patterns are described as Homolateral.
If Homolateral was indicated from the survey as a primary area of focus these therapeutic interventions will have greater priority:
If Homolateral was indicated from the survey as a primary area of focus these activities will have a greater therapeutic benefit:
Contextual conversations can have profound therapeutic benefits. If Homolateral was indicated from the survey as a primary area of focus this section offers contextual parameters for engaging conversationally within these guidelines:
After working with the items in this section for some time, it is recommended to consider adding therapies. activities, and themes from the Conscious Action section to encourage the integration of the increased competency in these automaticities with our conscious, intentional (Neo-Cortical) actions:
