Hands-Brain Connection

Biopsychiatry has shown that during natal development, the skin of the palms is formed from the same cytological material (the ectoderm of the fertilized egg cell) as the brain’s cortex. The two share an embryological development symmetry. And indeed, studies have linked between the two in a manner that events in the brain are given an integral organic representation in the hands.

Our brain is flexible, changing, and evolving in accordance to experiences, learning and other events we go through. These changes will present themselves in our hands.

Currently, Chirology is being used in medical genetics research and diagnosis (Molecular Genetic Science of Dermatoglyphics), identifying syndromes and abnormalities in embryos, as well as certain diseases in humans, biometrics, and more.

No feature in the human hand is accidental or arbitrary. Everything has meaning.
