Functional Disconnection Syndrome

Neuroscience has long established that for the human brain to fully function, large areas of the brain, as well as the left and right hemispheres, constantly use electrical impulses for communication. This is very important because each hemisphere performs different functions that allow us to respond to the world we live in. However, more recent research shows that when the two sides of the brain do not mature at the same rate, it upsets the balance of electrical impulses between the two sides and interferes with communication. There is now evidence that this communication problem is responsible for numerous behavioral, social and learning difficulties.

Pervasive developmental disorder, autism, attention deficit, learning difficulties, and hyperactivity appear as childhood neuropsychiatric disorders with an increasing frequency recently. These situations, the cause of which are not fully known, lead to negative situations for personal and public health.

Although medicine has traditionally classified these children as having a distinct disorder defined by the group of symptoms—most notably autism, ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, and dyslexia, and others—the possibilities for assessment and recent advances in diagnostic imaging techniques reveal striking similarities in the brains of children with these conditions. shows. We can now see that almost all conditions that negatively affect behavior and learning are actually associated with a single problem, such as an imbalance of electrical activity between areas of the brain, especially the right and left hemispheres of the brain. There’s even a name for it: Functional Disconnection Syndrome (FDS).

Upon careful examination, you may find that children with these conditions share a number of common symptoms. These are not accidental. They are all symptoms of FDS and differ only in the unbalanced side of the brain and the severity of the unbalance. Clinical findings vary. Evaluating the brain as a whole contributes to the treatment.

The definition, causes and treatment methods are explained in detail in the book FUNCTIONALLY DISCONNECTED CHILDREN (Cinemascope and NÖRALP Academy).
