I think that what it's called. I'm sure many of you are aware that right
parietal damage can cause anosognosia and/or unilateral neglect. You may even
know that cold water in the right ear can temporarily cure sufferers of these
odd disorders. It could be that the vestibular stimulation is activating the
impaired right hemisphere. I'm wondering whether this cold water therapy might
be used in non-impaired people to enhance a specialized function of a
particular hemisphere. Cold water in your right ear before a math test or to
remember a name. Cold water in your left before an artistic endeavor or if
you're lost whle driving. Whaddya think?
