Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It would be very useful, I think, if there's anyone reading this who has these kinds of contacts, to get her into a brain-scanning machine (a non dangerous one--I'm sure they're all non-dangerous!), then run some questions by her, ideally I'd have Fran ask her questions--maybe use the person who's going to take the readings to be the control, and one other--an undergraduate in neuroscience who is only told "You'll be asked some questions"--

to see if she really can flip those switches such that the change in brain activity can be noted--

But why?  Because as ATinNM wrote, there are disorders of the brain--which are distressing to the individuals maybe, or just plain confusing to everyone involved--so visual evidence of the ability to switch from left to right at will--

I can imagine clinical trials, esp. with...I dunno, science has its ways and pharmaceutical companies employ people--

But as a science project, as a brian scientist I'm sure she'd be interested.

In fact, I'd put it the other way and say if she isn't involved in these researches--

If she hasn't been asked--what an excellent research opportunity!

If she's been asked and said no--why would she say no?

And...the bell of caution (the electrons ring--like bells!)...
