The learners - small children and adults – take special training courses designed to stimulate the power latent in their brains. They are asked to touch things and guess the colors of the things blindfold. The exercises are advertised to help people stimulate their central hemisphere.
The images show that teachers can help learners obtain extraordinary abilities. For example, learners can read news just by touching the newspapers.
The training centers said that there are always parts in human brains that may never be used in their lives.
Therefore, ads say that the learners at the class not only can read newspapers and guess colors blindfold, but can also become the people with a genius brain. They will be smart people who can do things that others cannot.
|Many urban parents take their children to training courses to have the children’s brains stimulated, hoping it will help them become more intelligent.|
The centers have been operational in HCMC and other cities and provinces. Urban parents rush to bring their children to centers, hoping that training there would help turn their children into supermen.
What do scientists say?
While many parents applaud the training, believing that this is a ‘scientific method’, scientists have voiced their concern about its ill effects.
Le Trung Tuan, director of the Institute of Psychological Drug Uses, warned that bringing children to the training courses for hemisphere stimulus is an serious mistake which will bring serious consequences.
Tuan said he personally agrees with the view that humans only use some parts of the brain. However, he stressed that the use of these parts must be natural, not influenced from outside.
He said that children’s brains will have to work contrary to natural laws. And once the brains bear pressure from this, this will cause a big impact on children’s development and may cause serious diseases, such as depression, the lack of ability to control the brain and schizophrenia.
In related news, urban parents are rushing to bring their children to a dermatoglyphics analysis service with the hope of understanding more about their children’s abilities. They believe that if they understand their children better, they will be able to help the children develop abilities and minimize the disadvantages.
