My Elbert: Neurodiversity & Emotions

Brain networks of attention arise in infancy and are related to individual differences, including pathology during childhood. Methods of training attention may improve performance and ameliorate pathology. Retrieved from “There is research on longitudinal and reciprocal relations among behavioral sleep problems and emotional and attentional self-regulation in a population sample of 4,109 children participating in Growing Up in Australia by “The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC)–Infant Cohort” (Williams, Berthelsen, Walker, & Nicholson, 2015).


noun: hallelujah; plural noun: hallelujahs; noun: alleluia; plural noun: alleluias

  1. God be praised (uttered in worship or as an expression of rejoicing).”He is risen! Alleluia!” -JEHOVAH (For The Peacemakers (guilt unto love of peace, anger unto simple strength)-—Protector Hallelu YAH, The Lord is alive! My protector is praiseworthy! The God who delivers me is exalted as king! (2 Sam 22:47)
  1. an utterance of the word “hallelujah” as an expression of worship or rejoicing.a piece of music or church liturgy containing an utterance or utterances of the word ‘hallelujah’.noun: Alleluia“the Gospel comes after the Alleluia verse”

Origin (Water) to Blood (Water from Water) to Spirit: What happens when you say hallelujah? Hallelujah! It’s finally the weekend! Hallelujah is defined as an expression of praise or thanks or rejoicing, especially in a religious context. When you give thanks to God or express religious joy, this is an example of a time when you might say “Hallelujah!”

How are the peripheral somatic and autonomic nervous systems related? The autonomic system: Acting or occurring involuntarily, without conscious control the somatic nervous system: The part of the peripheral nervous system that transmits signals from the central nervous system to skeletal muscles, and from receptors of external stimuli, thereby mediating sight, hearing, and touch.

Note: In previous studies, children with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have been found to have more difficulties with processing speed, working memory, and attentional tasks. Retrieved from


Note: “Confusion is present as to possible diagnostic differences between Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and Nonverbal learning disabilities (NLD) and the relation of these disorders to attentional difficulties” (Semrud-Clikeman, Walkowiak, Wilkinson, & Christopher, 2010). Note: There was also a significant verbal-performance IQ split in this group related to difficulty in social functioning. This study extends the findings from previous studies and extends these findings to differences between AS and NLD groups. “These findings demonstrate that JOLs predict not only recollection, but also automatic influences of memory” (Undorf, Böhm, & Cüpper, 2016).


Note: Those with ADHD suffer more from Auditory Processing than those with dyslexia, retrieved from

Note: The problem for people with BPD is that the disorder distorts both the messages they hear and those they try to express. BPD expert and author, Randi Kreger, likens it to “having ‘aural dyslexia,’ in which they hear words and sentences backwards, inside out, sideways, and devoid of context.” Retrieved from

Neurodiversity in Auditory, Visual & Vestibular



After about three years into researching the emotions of anger and shame in learning apathy and needing resilience, motivation and focus:

BF is correct, but lets help others heal too, should say, ‘then you heal’!! Also, for kids, just think about that…

Due to anger and shame, there is a difference in attentional processing level when developing early social and emotional skills.

EM Field is our affective-spiritual components which include the following: a healthy and functional physiological, sensory-motor systems meaning our exteroception and interoception (“our senses”) including our sensory system (especially visual and auditory) along with central and peripheral nervous systems- which is regulated by RAS & ACC/HPA, Pons (parts of the brain- I describe as heart not mind for that would be the RAS/Gut), thymus and biofield (including electromagnetic field, internal chakras).

Here is Pink’s summary of what it means to keep the heart. The reader is advised to read the extended discussion that goes with each point by clicking here.


  1. To “keep” the heart means striving to shut out from it all that is opposed to God…
  2. To “keep” the heart means striving to bring it into conformity with the Word…
  3. To “keep” the heart means to preserve it tender unto sin…4. To “keep” the heart means to look diligently after its cleansing.

Note: (See Image Brain Stem & CNS damage, regulates sleep) They found sleep problems have a persistent negative effect on emotional regulation, which in turn contributes to ongoing sleep problems and poorer attentional regulation in children over time. Findings suggest that sleep behaviors are a key target for interventions that aim to improve children’s self-regulatory capacities.

What is also interesting is that ‘child maltreatment and efficiency of the conflict attention (Alerting, Orienting, and Executive Function Networks) and their interactions of the networks along with their independently predicted scores on the Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) precursors composite. Maltreated children had higher mean scores on the BPD precursors composite, and children classified as having high levels of these precursors were more prevalent in the maltreatment group.’ Development and Psychopathology Volume 17, Issue 4, December 2005, pp. 1071 – 1089 DOI:

Another study examined the visuo-spatial mechanism which is responsible for omissions and a perceptual integration process for substitution errors. They measured the performance of six patients with both ‘neglect and neglect dyslexia’, analyzing their reading errors as a function of letter spacing. In visual processing as well as decision-making, a separate study (2021), examined brain activity monitoring using EEG in the study showed synchronized activity over the centro-parietal regions of the brain involved in decision-making steadily increased in all of the children during the task until they made a decision. However, this happened more gradually in the children with dyslexia. [Retrieved from,;].

Sounds and Electrometric Resonance:

The Holy Place represents the Soul of man (1 Thessalonians 5:23), and the three items of furniture (i.e., Golden Lampstand (1), Table of Showbread (1), Golden Altar of Incense (1)) in the Holy Place represent the process that will lead to this Truth transformation. Therefore, the Holy Place’s “Curtain Screen” symbolically represents Jesus as “The Truth” (John 14:6). “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV

Can we turn off (DOC) Disorders of Conscious with Epigenetics?? Holistic, Alternative, Natural means? I say…YES

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) another name Emotionally Intense or Sensitive:

Note: Gene 17- This gene encodes an integral membrane protein that transports the neurotransmitter serotonin from synaptic spaces into presynaptic neurons. The encoded protein terminates the action of serotonin and recycles it in a sodium-dependent manner. This protein is a target of psychomotor stimulants, such as amphetamines and cocaine, and is a member of the sodium: neurotransmitter symporter family.

Note: A polymorphism is when there are two or more possibilities of a trait on a gene. A repeat length polymorphism in the promoter of this gene has been shown to affect the rate of serotonin uptake. There have been conflicting results in the literature about the possible effect, if any, that this polymorphism may play in behavior [learning] and depression. [provided by RefSeq, May 2019] (see Gifted & Talented, 2e w/ Dyslexia). [Retrieved from].

Note: Developmental factors, including problems with emotional attunement [shame] between a developing child and caregivers, seem to play a role, as do physical or sexual abuse, or emotional neglect (stems from temperament and trauma, triggered by Events such as Abandonment). [See List Of Characteristics-Retrieved from;].

“indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding,” Proverbs 2:3 NIV then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:5 NIV “And he said to the human race, “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.”

Wisdom from the Holy Spirit- thus, the whole inner being (Pr 3:5). The “leb” aka heart and mind carries along several other organs of the body (cf. ear and eyes already in Pr 4:20, 21) mentioned frequently in wisdom instruction: mouth, lips, and eyes (parallel to “eyelids” or “orbs” in Pr 4:25) and bring righteousness, humility, and discernment as a fruit of the Spirit:

“…so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,…” And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.

(Philippians 1:9-11)
