Example text

You receive a stimulating signal of pressure, temperature, auditory frequency or light wave which results in an electricalimpulse in your central nervous system and the secretion of chemicals. Your brain interprets the electrical stimulation and the chemicals which are secreted so that you feel you are touching someone you love, or you are seeing something red, or you are listening to Bach. If any of the connections from the peripheral receptor to the brain are disrupted, your ability to interpret the stimulation will be affected.

Three areas of multimodal 34 AN OSTEOPATHIC APPROACH TO CHILDREN processing are of particular importance to perception and learning (Saper et al 2000). The posterior association cortex, composed of parietal, occipital and temporal lobes, is concerned with perception and language. The posterior association cortex is responsible for establishing a spatial map of the world around us. This area integrates visual and somatosensory information, allowing us to manoeuvre around familiar spaces. The ability to get up in the middle of the night and go to the toilet without turning on any lights or causing any disasters is due to the posterior parietal cortex, as is the ability to pick up a pencil and move it across a piece of paper in a configuration which is a symbolic representation of a thought without tearing the paper or breaking the pencil.

As can be seen, each of these areas is involved with multimodal processing - comparing and integrating information from primary sensory areas to construct a map, be it spatial, behavioural or emotional, which we use to respond to our world. Consequently, the association areas of the cortex are involved with all complex mental functions (Saper et al 2000). Damage to any of these areas of the cortex in an adult results in specific functional deficits. However, the situation is less clear when the damage occurs in the very young.
