A set of brain regions are commonly co-activated across a range of social tasks:
the medial and ventromedial prefrontal cortex, the posterior cingulate/precuneus, the amygdala and anterior hippocampus, the anterior temporal lobes, the posterior superior temporal sulcus and temporo-parietal junction, the lateral portion of the fusiform gyrus, the left inferior frontal gyrus, somatosensory and anterior intraparietal cortices,and the anterior insula .
These are often referred to collectively as the ‘social brain’ [Frith and Frith, 2007; Olson et al., 2007; Blakemore, 2008; Adolphs, 2009; Mitchell, 2009].
RECEIVED THIS: Thought you might like to know, I used the Core Alignment & Stress Free with one of my non-verbal clients with autism on Thursday.Within the 2 hours I worked with him, I saw him do things he has never done before. He counted to 8! Very difficult to understand, as articulation needs work, but never has he counted at all. He did it several times throughout the session.
The mom was stunned & so excited!
He also sang some new songs he had never sung before. The only change was adding Core Alignment. I have been using Stress Free for a while, but this was the first time I was able to get him to tolerate wearing the headphones. He did the Core for 20 min & we played Stress for the remainder of the session in the background! PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS THE 3RD NONVERBAL CHILD WITH AUTISM THAT HAS SPOKEN.
