bi·lat·er·al – Having two sides or pertaining to both sides. Dorland’s Medical Dictionary, Vol. 28
Brain injury
Any injury to the brain that causes the loss of one or more brain cells. The injury can be the result of a physical, chemical, or emotional insult. When enough brain cells are injured it can effect the sensory-motor feedback loop. The result can be minor such as a learning disability or major such as a coma or even death. It can also interrupt the ontogenetic development.
Cortical Opposition
More commonly known as the pincer grasp or ability to oppose thumb and forefinger
gno·sis – Ability to appreciate light touch and be ticklish. Human Neurological Organization, Thomas Lewinn
Individualized Educational Plan. An IEP is made up of the student performance profile, instructional profile, goals and objectives, discipline plan, as well as a transportation plan. Once an element has been added to a student’s IEP and agreed upon the school is responsible for seeing that the student receives the service or support.
Innate intelligence
The inborn intelligence or intelligence existing in one from birth that runs every aspect of life.
The course of development as it is associated with changes in the nervous system.
neu·ro·phys·i·ol·o·gy  – The physical and chemical changes associated with the functioning of the nervous system.
än-‘tä-j&-nE – The development or course of development especially of an individual organism.
The ontogeny of human neurological functions develops a fully integrated nervous system. When a stage of ontogenetic development is missed it may result in disorders such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, dyslexia, or learning disabilities. Repeating a stage of ontogenetic development can restore integrity to the nervous system and treat the cause of the disorder.
Because the Ontogeny of Human Neurological Functions is responsible for the development of a healthy nervous system the stages that comprise it may also be used to develop neurological functions that have been lost due to a traumatic brain injury such as a construction-site accident or a stroke./dd>
pre·hen·sile – Adapted for seizing or grasping especially by wrapping around.
pro·pri·o·cep·tors– Sensory nerve terminals found in muscles, tendons and joint capsules, which give information concerning movements and position of body. Dorland’s Medical Dictionary, Vol. 28
Reticular Activating System
The system of cells of the reticular formation of the medulla oblongata that receive collaterals from the ascending sensory pathways and project to the higher center; they control the overall degree of central nervous system activity, including wakefulness, attentiveness, and sleep. Dorland’s Medical Dictionary, Vol. 28
The faculty of perceiving and understanding the form and nature of objects by the sense of touch. Dorland’s Medical Dictionary, Vol. 28
ves·tib·u·lar – Referring to the portion of the inner ear concerned with equilibration and the nerve fibers (part of the auditory nerve) which terminate in the vestibular nuclei lying in the lower pons and upper medulla. Human Neurological Organization, Thomas Lewinn
