The Proof is in The Pudding… and The Problem is in The Paradigm
The effects of every brain injury, brain disease, or any brain “irregularity” are different. While brain research has found certain functions to be strongly correlated with certain structures within the brain, the wiring of neurons within those structures are different in each individual. This connection matrix of neurons, also referred to as “connectome”, is not static: it changes. In fact, the wiring of neurons can change within hours (Sporns, Tononi and Kotter: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1239902/). And because the functionality of the brain is so dependent on that wiring, it is very difficult, and arguably impossible using our current technology, to find effective therapies for brain injuries or disease under the research methods employed by western medicine.
The paradigm that is used to draw conclusions by western medicine is dependent upon double blind, placebo controlled studies involving consistent…
