Prefrontal lobe – has been found to play a part in impulse control, working memory, problem solving, socialization and spontaneity. It assists in planning, coordinating, controlling, and executing behaviour creating personality expression and moderating correct social behaviour. People who have damaged prefrontal lobe may experience problems with being unable to initiate action, attentiveness, ability to concentrate, behaviour disorders, difficulty in learning new information, lack of inhibition (appropriate social behaviour), lack of goal-direction and emotional ability with “Flat effect” (unemotional).
Frontal lobe – logical thinking, computation process, analysis, reasoning and judgement, language production, handling of words and grammar and synthesis, imagination, concept and idea formation, creative thinking and visualization.
The Parietal lobe – is responsible for control activity, involved in reception and processing of sensory information from the body.
Temporal lobe – is responsible for the reception of auditory (hearing) input. For example, the right temporal lobe is responsible for musical appreciation, whilst the left hemisphere is responsible for the understanding of speech. Left temporal lesion results in impaired memory for verbal material. Right side lesion can result in recall of non-verbal material, such as music and drawing.
The Occipital lobe – is responsible for visual spatial processing and visual interpretation. For example the right occipital lobe will recognizes image/object and faces by sight. The left occipital lobe is responsible for recognition of words, sign and symbol and reading. Damage of occipital lobe will lead to discrimination of movement and color discrimination. And it also can cause word blindness with writing impairments (alexia & agraphia)
The theory of the structure and functions of the mind suggests that the two different sides of the brain control two different “modes” of thinking. It also suggests that each of us prefers one mode over the other.
Right brain and left brain dominated people can also be categorized as divergent and convergent thinkers respectively.
A convergent thinker has a systematic approach and plays by the rules. He analyzes everything and reaches a logical conclusion. Thus, scientific and mathematical activities are more up his street.
Divergent thinkers, on the other hand, are creative and tend to throw the rules out of the window. They are artistic and always looking for ways to express themselves.
When It Comes To Academics
Left brain dorminated children do well at school, as they are more likely to respond to formal learning. They exhibit greater responsibility, are quite content to study by themselves and have greater concentration.
Right brain dominated children, on the other hand, are less likely to perform well academically. They prefer to study with company, cannot sit still for very long and are more responsive in informal settings.
The Secret of the Rich’s Brain
The connection between individual neurons results in learning. Even if the brain’s development is completed and the neurons have stopped increasing. Learning abilities can still be improved.

Dermatoglyphics refers to the branch of science in the study of the patterns of skins (dermal) ridges present on the fingers, toes and the soles of human. Its reveals the congenital links between our fingers and our intrinsic qualities and talents.
Dermatoglyphics is coined by Professor Harold Cummins in the 20th century. Since 1920s, there have been numerous research.
Dermatoglyphics has absolute scientific basis, with 200 years of research. It is analyzed and proven with evidence in anthropology, genetic, medicine and statistics. In recent years, U.S., Japan and Taiwan have applied Dermatoglyphics to diagnose Down Syndrome, congenital disorders, generic abnormalites, educational fields, human resources management, employee recruitment, and etc.
