Following some cool fact about dichotic listening:
"...dichotic listening should be considered a test of functional inter-hemispheric interaction and connectivity
, besides being a test of lateralized temporal lobe language function [...] the corpus callosum is critically involved in the top-down attentional control of dichotic listening performance, thus having a critical role in auditory laterality."
Westerhausen and Hugdahl, 2008
"...the provided stimuli (Phonetic, emotion) had a significant presence on activating the different parts of the brain in charge of the specific stimuli."
What if we inject emotional sounds to the right ear and phonetic ones to the left ear?
It could because like a cross-crawl on steroid.
For those of you that don't know what cross-crawl is:
"Cross crawl exercises refer to movements in which we use opposition such as crawling, walking, running, and swimming. Opposition means that opposite sides of the body work together to coordinate the right arm and left leg, then the left arm and right leg.
Therapeutically, cross crawl refers to any intentional cross-lateral activity in which you cross the mid-line of the body, such as touching opposite hand and knee or foot."
And a story about its use:
"Dr. Hannaford tells the story of Todd, a 16-year-old who, despite tremendous effort on the part of both himself and his parents, still couldn't read.
This was, as you might imagine, a huge problem. He wouldn't be able to graduate from high school if he couldn't read. He wouldn't be able to attend college or hold any number of jobs. His life would be, in many ways, compromised.
Fortunately, he and his parents were told about cross-lateral movements. The whole family started doing the cross-crawl with Todd, daily. They did it twice--once in the morning, before leaving for school (and work); and once in the evening, before bed.
Six weeks later, Todd was reading.
At grade level. "
