My Elbert: Neurodiversity and The Cerebellum

Any number of patterns of rhythmic electric impulses are produced in different parts of the brain. There are four types of typical brain waves: alpha, beta, theta, and delta. These are similar and relatively stable in all normal individuals. Brain waves help in the diagnosis of certain neurologic disorders, including brain lesions and the likelihood of having a seizure. Important Statement: “In a very broad sense, near–10Hz (Thymus) waves may function as a widespread “system clock” for many parts
of the brain.” Similarly, researchers have long suspected the alphas originate in a brain region called the thalamus, the waves’ definitive source and function remain elusive, says Roger Traub, a mathematical neurologist with IBM. As well, the beta wave, arises from the thalamus, the part of the brain that relays sensory information to the cortex, and in doing so, may help inhibit sensory and motor information
processing. During the global activation of the brain, gamma brainwaves sweep across your brain from front to back, beginning in the prefrontal cortex where thinking occurs and sweeping back through the sensory areas. What do high brain waves mean? See Superior Temporal Gyrus (STG)—
Auditory/Rhythmic Motion Perception-NTN PART II [Retrieved from].

Note: The cerebral cortex is thought to be the seat of conscious processing in the brain. Rather than being inactivated, specific cells in the cortex show higher spontaneous activity during general
anesthesia than when awake, and this activity is synchronized across those cortical cells. [Retrieved from].

As well, “The evidence from neural data is clear that the gestalt cortex is central to how we construct our version of reality.”[see Ras information below, retrieved from] ]

What is the rectangular formation in the brain?

The underlying connectivity of the cerebellar cortex and nuclei with limbic-related brain areas and associative and paralimbic cortices suggests widespread cerebellar influence on behaviors including the experience and expression of emotion, sadness and grief, integrative hypothalamic visceral/sensory functions, pain perception, modulation, and intensity due to noxious stimuli, as well as other nonmotor behaviors. The limbic system is a collection of structures involved in processing emotion and memory, including the hippocampus, the amygdala, and the hypothalamus. The limbic system is located within the cerebrum of the brain, immediately below the temporal lobes, and buried under the cerebral cortex (the cortex is the outermost part of the brain).

Note: Some common synonyms of grief are anguish, regret, sorrow, and woe. While all these words mean “distress of mind,” grief implies poignant sorrow for an immediate cause. the inexpressible grief of the bereaved parents. [Read more here].
The reticular formation (RAS) is a phylogenetically primitive network of small neurons extending throughout the brainstem and into the spinal cord. It has a diverse input; its descending connexions are mostly from the cerebral cortex, cerebellum and red nuclei; The reticular formation includes ascending pathways to the cortex in the ascending reticular activating system (ARAS) [Retrieved from;]. SEE the Coronalsection of the pons, at its upper part-(Formation reticularis).

The cerebellum plays a key role in the storage of both positive and negative memories of emotional events. The cerebellum is known primarily for the regulation of movement. Researchers at the University of Basel have now discovered that the cerebellum also plays an important role in remembering emotional experiences.

With over two and a half decades of experience, I have a passion for learning new techniques and being at the forefront of groundbreaking advancements in education. As a graduate of the renowned Auburn University, I have earned both her BA in ECE and Masters Degree in Secondary with Reading Specialist certification from the University of Alabama. I have experience at the Montessori School in Birmingham which has provided me with valuable insights into the best practices of teaching young minds. I have also developed training programs for teachers, providing essential support to students with neurodiverse needs such as dyslexia, ADHD, and autism spectrum. I have focus on developing a "whole child" pedagogy that caters to all modes of learning, I continually work with Dr. Joseph Nwoye on teaching and learning including DEI. I have helped develop programs and training with SDIG ( in promoting the intersectionality of the complexities and complicated issues of diversity. I have credentials as a reading specialist with a speech pathology background expanded greatly while owning Cook's Independent Tutoring, Coaching, Consulting, LLC. I currently pursuing a Neurodiversity Family Coaching certification in the framework of the CReW Coaching Institute. Again, I have a commitment to being at the forefront of groundbreaking advancements in education. As an enthusiastic learner and educator, I am confident that I have the necessary skills to support others in achieving their goals ( For more information, contact Tricia Cook, Cook's Independent, Tutoring, Coaching and Consulting, LLC.
