BRAIN THE LEAST KNOWN HUMAN ORGAN
BUT MOST VITAL ORGAN
.....AS PER "BRAIN DEAD" CLICHE IN ALL CULTURES...
.......INDIA'S SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
POWER OF sNskRUt LANGUAGE AND ITS DEvnaagri SCRIPT
.....IN ACTIVATING AND USING MORE BRAIN AREAS
THAN ENLGISH LANGUAGE AND ITS SCRIPT....
......This discovery means the
defined in sciences of life and creation called vED
as the language of Gods
has a much extended function
beyond communication by speech !!!!! .....
|Scientists at the Manesar-based National
Brain Research Centre (NBRC) in Haryana, India have for the first
time studied the processing of an Indian script-Devanagari-in the human
brain using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) with following
brainpower and brain functioning use revelations says
Dr. Nandini Chatterjee Singh,
who led the multi-disciplinary team of researchers:
1. Reading phrases in
Devanagari script originating from sNskRUt language empowers brain for
bilateral activation-participation from both left and right
2. This medical discovery of brain
has potential for practical applications in treating brain disorders
such as dyslexia but also to improve brain usage and brain power...

brain to use MORE BRAIN AREAS
from both left and right hemispheres of brain

Learning Hindi has an advantage over English-it exercises more areas of
the brain compared to the Queen's language. />
In a first-of-its-kind study in the country, scientists have discovered
that reading Hindi involves more areas of human brain than English.
SScientists at the Manesar-based National Brain Research Centre (NBRC)
have for the first time studied the processing of an Indian script-Devanagari-in
the human brain using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
In Devanagari, consonants are written in a linear left-to-right order
and vowel signs are positioned above, below or on either side of the
As a result, the vowel precedes the consonant in writing certain words
but follows it in speech making it a unique script.
"Our results suggest bilateral activation-participation from both left
and right hemispheres of the brain-for reading phrases in Devanagari,"
said Dr. Nandini Chatterjee Singh, who led the multi-disciplinary team
The human brain does not have dedicated neurological circuits
specifically meant for reading.
Therefore, reading involves restructuring of the existing neural
architecture or activation of certain areas of the brain depending on
the script one is reading.
English, which uses the Roman script, is alphabetic. That is, it has
vowels and consonants that are written linearly from left to right.
Reading English-and other alphabetic languages-involves activation of
areas in the left hemisphere of the brain.
In contrast, Devanagari has the properties of both alphabetic and
syllabic scripts. Scientists have found reading the language involves
activation of the left and right hemisphere.
The result of the study has recently appeared in journal Current
Science. Researchers used the fMRI technique to record images of a
working brain while reading Hindi. The study was conducted with
individuals who primarily read Devanagari.
"While it is difficult to find in India a population that reads only
Hindi and no English, we could manage to find individuals who primarily
read Hindi and have been doing so for the last 20 years," Dr. Singh
In India, she said, children usually learn to read two scripts (often
English and a regional language) almost simultaneously in school.
Dr. Singh added:
1. "If this is the best way to teach our children
still remains to be determined.
2. What the implications of this are for
dyslexia is also something we are investigating.
3. The practical implications of our studies
will hopefully emerge in the next few years..."

AUTOBIGRAPHY OF NANDINI
I was trained as a physicist in
non-linear dynamics and chaos from the University of
Pune. I worked on some aspects of
experimental chaos at Ohio University .
I then moved to on to computational
neuroscience at the University of California at
Berkeley, where I worked as a post doctoral fellow with Frederic
Theunissen. We set up Spectro-Temporal Receptive Fields (STRF’s) for
auditory neurons and studied the auditory processing of natural sounds
in zebra finches.
I returned to India in the fall of 2002 and joined NBRC where I am
pursuing research in the following areas of:
- Language and central auditory
- Language and learning
- Structure and representation
- Language and its disorders in
Language is a code that we learn to use in order to communicate ideas
and express our wants and needs. Reading, writing, speaking, and some
gesture systems are all forms of language. Speech is the spoken form of
language. In daily life, language manifests itself more often through
vocal symbols. In this sense, language consists of sounds.
IIn collaboration with Dr. Frederic Theunissen who is at UC, Berkeley, I
have developed a computational method to analyse the phonological
structure of sound in terms of its temporal and spectral structure
called the modulation spectrum. One of the aims of my research is to
study the phonological structure of different Indian languages and
characterize their similarities and differences. This is accomplished by
setting up the modulation spectrum of different languages is in terms of
temporal and spectral modulations and comparing them.
Most children develop language relatively effortlessly, but some others
have unusual difficulty in mastering this skill. Often there is no
obvious explanation for a child’s language difficulties:
- hearing is normal,
- nonverbal ability is sufficient,
- the child does not have any
apparent physical or psychiatric disability
and comes from a
normal home background.
This is known as specific language
impairment, or SLI.
The source of this problem has been poorly understood and standard
speech therapy techniques used to treat the disorder have proved
One popular theory maintains that, although children with SLI have
normal hearing, they may have difficulty in distinguishing sounds that
are brief or rapid. Since the modulation spectrum is a representation of
sound in terms of temporal and spectral modulations, one would expect
that a modulation spectrum of the speech sounds of children with SLI
would reflect the modulations missing in their speech versus the speech
of normal children.
I am also using this approach to also test the hypothesis that children
with LLI (Language Learning Impairment) often require longer time
periods between acoustic events to discriminate them as compared to
A secondary aim is to study the modulation spectra of children with
language disorders and see how these are different from normal children.
I hope to address these different issues in my study and in the process
also obtain some clues on early detection of this impairment

Neuro-Informatics and computational neuroscience research in India has
followed two directions – on the one hand research has focused on the
use of computational approaches to understand neural processing. On the
other hand research has been directed towards developing new tools that
would benefit clinical research. In this paper we describe research
initiatives undertaken in both areas and also discuss some new programs
that been initiated at the recently commissioned National Facility for
Functional Brain Imaging at the National Brain Research Centre.
