Center for Emotional Restructuring Announces a Published Article Suggesting the Brain Code for Learning and Memory Prior to Human Brain and Brain Activity Map Projects
Date:3/28/2013

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) March 28, 2013

Clinical psychologist Dr. Robert A. Moss and three graduate students have just published an article supporting the cortical column as the binary unit (bit) involved in all cortical processing and memory storage. The physiological definition of memory involves the connections among columns which serve as the neural circuits. It is suggested that only the outermost neurons of each 0.4 to 1.0 mm column activate and that the columns overlap which allows for the needed structural integrity along with a large volume of information bits. The article suggests the roadmap of how the columns are arranged in the cortex to allow cognitive functions such as speech and object recognition. If accurate, this could be a guide as to the level of where to look in the brain related to the recently funded European Union Human Brain Project and the proposed U.S. Brain Activity Map Project. Both projects have a primary goal of identifying the code involved in cortical processing and memory and how this leads to cognitive abilities.

The first article on the Dimensional Systems Model which described the role of the column was published in 2006, with elaboration on how this relates to psychological treatment (Clinical Biopsychology and Emotional Restructuring) of psychiatric disorders being published in 2007 and 2010. The current article provides elaboration on how gamma frequency oscillations can lead to the formation of columns which are interconnected. This opens the possibility that not only may connections be disrupted in brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease; there may be disruption in electrical frequencies which disrupt the dynamic formation of columns. If columns cannot form, then the memory would be disrupted. There is still much research to be done to verify the accuracy of the theory.

Based on the brain model, the clinical biopsychology approach has been thoroughly developed, with implications on how the brain design leads to predictable relationship behavior patterns. In contrast to other psychotherapy theories (psychodynamic, humanistic/existential, cognitive-behavioral),this is the only one based on how the brain processes and encodes information. Full information on all aspects of the brain theory and its applications is available at the website.
