Origami and Whole Brain


In origami the folding occurs with the participation of both hands, without the condition of the domination of one or the other (as, for example, writing a letter or drawing) and without the necessity of tools.

The coordinated work of the hands requires sufficient activity of the brain, harmonious work of its various structures. In such motor activity a large force is made. Let's recollect that the ability to manipulate hands in the evolution of mankind has served as one of the starting points in the development of intellectual abilities.

It is known that the right half of our body is controlled by the left hemisphere of the brain, and left half is controlled by the right hemisphere. Functions of right and left hemispheres are different.


WHILE DOING ORIGAMI:

 


Left hemisphere

following functions become active:



Right-hand control

Spoken language

Written language

Number skills

Reasoning

Scientific skills
Hemispheres
Right hemisphere

following functions become active:



Left-hand control

Insight

3-D forms

Imagination

Art awareness

Music awareness

The ability of logical thinking, number skills, reading, reasoning, speech, and scientific ability is connected to activity of the left hemisphere. Functions of the right hemisphere - insight, three-dimensional perception (recognition), sensitivity to art, imagination, musical and art abilities. Thus, we can tell, that origami promotes an increase of activity in both right - creative, and left - logic hemispheres, and floppy interaction of the hemispheres in the work of the whole brain.

Origami can be used as a means of: -activation of the right and left hemispheres; -development of fine 'motor skills' of the hands; -development of intelligence; -activation of creative thinking; -development of spatial imagination and visual accuracy.

So, origami combines in itself: a psychophysiological basis of activation of the hemispheres of the brain on a background of positive - coloring emotional experiences; multimodal activation of mental opportunities; novelty; sense of activity; sensation of game; final result; satisfaction from work and aesthetic experiences!
