Dear David:

This little Elliott Littlewood-Snyder is sure one cool kid. He's at the University Of Alberta wearing a brain activity monitor which studies why toddlers and kids can react out, &/or have temper tantrums. So he's doing research in the hospital, and that research is II play & let Psychologist Sandra Weibe & her Psychology team go to work studying machine data of his brain patterns. Its like a scam job, he plays in the hospital, doing what every kid should do, play & be normal. In addition he gets praise from his family, friends and the researchers. I mean hook my brain up to this device David if I could just play all day.

The charts can tell when a subject or kid is lashing out in a reaction format. It can also tell when they are "controlling their behaviour." Truly I would say a remarkable tool, it lets people see how a young brain starts off & where it will begin the process of learning as Elliott & other kids begin entering say playschool &/or kindergarten.

Happy St. Jean Baptiste Day To Mes Amis In Quebec,
