BRAIN AND HANDS – Relationship

I am not starting a comparison between hands and brain. Nor am I trying to establish a relationship between the two. I leave it to the researchers and the people reading this to opine upon my observations and what I am trying to tell. I am a forensic scientist working for Police Department, specialist in Fingerprints,with over 32 years experience. I am still active and energetic.
​The human brain is a paired organ. It is composed of two halves (also known as cerebral hemisphere) which are a bit of look-alike. Left and right half. Similarly human have two hands. Left hand and right hand. 

The development of fingers and the brain lobes start between 12 to 15 week of foetus life. Dye to their simultaneous development and growth many researchers and scientist have tried to establish relationship between Fingerprints Patterns and Brain Lobes. Dr. Harold Cummins was such a doctor who gave very positive relationship between Fingerprints Patterns and Brain Lobes. He even coined the relationship as “DERMATOGLYPHICS”. According to Dr. Cummins, each Fingerprints Pattern is associated with some Innate qualities/ potentials, Personality Traits, Human Behaviour, Skills, Vocations, etc. Reading and analysing the fingerprint patterns on the hands of kids as little as 3-5 years of age, their innate qualities can be known such as whether that child will be Extra-ordinary in reading skills, or sports or vocational training or that child will prefer acting, dancing, singing, etc.
Paul Broca suggested a mirror correlation between cerebral hemisphere ( half and opposite) and the personality traits i.e. the human left hand movement is being controlled and supervised by the right cerebral hemisphere of the brain.
In 1999, neurologist Frank Wilson wrote a book on hands.  Inspired by his own efforts to learn a challenging manual task – playing the piano – and working with people with injured hands, he compiled a book on the intimate relationship between brain development and how we use our hands. 
Each cerebral hemisphere is having lobes or parts responsible for performing function, activity, etc related to that part. They are:-

Frontal Lobe

motor strip location, impulsivity, short term memory, emotion, voluntary movement, social functioning, creativity, expressive language.
Parietal Lobe
sensory strip location, perception, touch(pain & temperature), ability to draw, reading and writing, calculations.
Temporal Lobe
hearing, long term memory, verbal and written recognition memory, receptive memory, music, initiation of verbal.
Occipital Lobe

perception, vision
Cerebellum 

coordination, balance, ability to judge distance, muscle tone including the muscles required for speech.

Brain Stem
Connects with the spinal cord, reticular activating system, thalmus, hypothalmus, heart rate and blood pressure, smell and taste, eye movement, appetite, vision, balance.

  • My husband and I were just discussing this topic last night. He had read a post I had written about muscle memory and brain memory because i recently cut my hair short but when I am hot my hands go up to put my hair in a pony tail even though there is no hair there. We discussed what happens in the brain and he said he believed it was more neurological and not muscle memory, more brain and nerves that made my hands go up to my hair. We also pondered more of what I wrote in PTSD and how can we retrain our brain to not react to certain triggers/stimuli . Interesting things he and I talk about for hours so thank you for writing a similar topic!

    • Thank you really reading the full blog. Brain and hands are developed at the same time in the 13 to 15 weeks in foetus life. So there are some connections. Further more we have five lobes in each brain hemisphere similar to five fingers of each hand. The left hemisphere is responsible for all actions of right hand and right hemisphere for left hand and body.

      • Your article was fascinating!
        Are you in the states or out of the country?
        We have been curious about the brain for some time now due to my PTSD and my seizures. When I have seizures ONLY the right side of my body shakes. Mostly my head and my right arm. This is also coincidently the arm and shoulder most atrophied with the muscle disease I have. (Yep lots of health issues)

  • वढेराजी आपका कार्य सराहनीय है. लेकीन मुझे लगता है फिंगर प्रींट सायन्स की जो नींव रखी गयी वो अपनेआपमें इतनी परिपूर्ण है की उसे और किसी रीलेशनकी जरूरत नही. अगर फींगर प्रींटके जरीए 100% पाॅजीटिव रिझल्ट चाहीए तो जरुरत है देश के सभी लोगो के फींगर प्रींटचे डेटा की. अगर इस दिशा में कोई प्रयास होता है, तो यह फील्ड100%
    कार्ईम इनव्हेसटीगेशन के लीए उपयुक्त होगा.

    • I truly agree with you, Patil ji. The Fingerprints is unique and permanent. DNA FINGERPRINTS and BRAIN FINGERPRINTS have assumed the name only to attract other scientists towards them. They fully understand that neither DNA FINGERPRINTING NOR BRAIN FINGERPRINTING are not exact field for identification of any individual. But if they add the word fingerprint or FINGERPRINTING, the general people will also regard them as true science.
      Thanks for your feedback. Do continue to bless with your suggestions/ feedback
