”La Culture Psycho-Sensorielle” is the product of 25 years of study, research and practical experience. This method is different from others in that its object is to educate regulatory nerve centres of the brain, which, in turn, influence the pituitary gland, that central regulator of the entire endocrinal system. The purpose of this educational method is to remove the cause of nervous functional "diseases" or disturbances.
"La Culture Psycho-Sensorielle" consists of two parts ;
- Psycho-sensorial Analysis (PSA) is a method of examining the functional (mechanical, gymnastic) efficiency of regulatory nerve centres. lt requires about one hour.
- Psycho-Sensorial Training (PST) is a method of educating or re-educating gymnastically the same centres.
Both PSA and PST employ special pparatus which are applied to the eye-optical nerve system.
The physical centre of man's psychic being is the brain. The eye is the window to the brain. Brain physiology shows that the eye via the optic nerve enters into the centre of the brain and is physically connected to several regulatory brain centres (quadrigeminal bodies, thalamus, hypothalamus red nuclei, etc.) and to the pituitary gland.
The eye is the most fundamental link between the brain and the outside world, between the micro-cosmos and the macro-cosmos. Being this window to the brain and to man's mind, the eye-optical nerve unit is the system by which this method gains access to the centre of the brain not only to examine (PSA) the state of things, but, most important of all, to educate, to harmonise and to render efficient the "eye-optical-nerve unit” and the various brain centres, so that the somato-psychic complex can function with maximum efficiency.
So PST eliminates functional disorders of the three lifes; sensorial-motor, neurovegetative, psychical as: blinding headache, stammering, asthma, insomnia, enuresia, tics, attention disorders, dyslexia, boulimeia anorexia, phobia, anguish, stress, etc.
Another important point is that, although involving the eyes, PST is not a visual educational method. No medicines, surgical interventions or optical lens systems are employed. PST is a purely educational method which educates (inscribes normal conditioned reflexes in) the regulatory nerve centres and thereby complements physical (muscular) education and school (intellectual) education.
Since PST trains the very instrument with which we learn, namely the brain, PSE should be integrated into the primary educational system, so that children with functional disorders can be normalised early in life.
Some philosophical and religious systems stress the importance of the Right View as an essential first step to self-realisation and maturity. The functionally disturbed person sees reality wrongly (abnormal visual image); PST enables him to see things as they ares (normalised visual image). The acquisition of this right view through PST represents a form of knowledge, a primary form of maturity and consequently one important key to personal realisation.
ln 1942 the importance of the method is acknowleged by the Ministry of Health which gives its authority to carry it out. In 1952 G. Quertant was made Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur upon the recommendation of the French Ministry of Education in recognition of his work in creating PST.
