These are just opinions and not scientific at all. I do still believe most of what I wrote (especially the stuff about lobotomies and testing on monkeys)...but...one thing I said in those articles is wrong. I have to make a sweeping retraction.
In the article "Thinkin' 'bout my Brain" I said that the general mapping of the brain could be different for everyone. I have to retract this claim.
The reason I thought that certain things were assigned to a certain part of my brain (that seemed different than the maps presented by neuro-science) was due to my suspicion that a case of post-concussion syndrome was causing the problems I was suffering.
I felt like the bottom right section of my brain was "off" and the troubled hearing in my right ear and headaches were due to that section being damaged. This was not the case.

The other day I was eating a big big hamburger at some restaurant in Laval. The burger was real big and I started to notice that I haven't been able to open my jaw properly in many years. I forced my jaw open and it must have hit the breaking point of the damaged area because I was in a lot of pain for the next week or so. I read something on the net about re-positioning a dislocated jaw and tried it out. I feel so good right now. The problems I thought were due to brain shit were actually just from some dumb jaw shit. For real.
What I thought was a brain problem was actually just a jaw problem. I was very wrong about some of my opinions on my brain.
I still believe most of what I wrote in those two articles but the fact that I thought the general mapping of the brain could be vastly different from person to person is not correct. It was regular old jaw trouble that was causing my symptoms, that's all.
