First step is a magnetic resonance imaging brain scan, so that Esterman can pinpoint the brain region he wants to stimulate. He is aiming for an area of the left prefrontal lobe, called the frontal eye field (FEF), which sits roughly halfway between my left ear and the top of my head, and is part of my underperforming dorsal attention network. The idea, I learn later, is to use a weak electromagnetic magnetic pulse to turn down the activity in the left hemisphere FEF, to force me to develop the more efficient right and boost my powers of concentration sort of like a variation of strapping down a good arm to force someone to strengthen the bad one..
Jon smiled at him and gave him a big hug. A minute later they got to work. Jon knew a lot already because of grandpa Jack but he still needed to learn more. The Washington Wizards have a significant opportunity when John Wall returns in about a month. Or they can have the same old problems.Wall is one of the most spectacular athletes in any pro sport, as well as one of the toughest at playing through pain. Wall will run through a wall to win.But can Wall alter his point guard game even slightly? Can he take lessons from watching his team play so well without him (11 6) the past month?As point guard, can Wall, when in a half court offense, keep the ball moving swiftly to maximize the talents of Otto Porter Jr., Markieff Morris, Tomas Satoransky and Mike Scott, each of whom has shot more and more accurately without Wall.Because 10 Wizards are better shooters than Wall from all distances combined, throughout their careers and in some cases by huge margins will he help them get more shots while sacrificing several shots of his own per game?Will Wall realize he now has enough talent around him that he can make the Wizards better by doing a bit more of what he does best with his imaginative passing, end to end speed in transition, courage driving to the basket and hounding defense, while doing a bit less of what he does poorly: shooting and over dribbling?In his eighth season, can Wall tweak his game to be more like future Hall of Famers Jason Kidd and Steve Nash and current Hall of Famer John Stockton, who shot just about a dozen times a game and averaged about 15points? Or will Wall put up 18shots a game, as he has the two previous seasons, feeling responsible to score 20 a game?[Quit debating: The Wizards need John Wall for the playoffs]These sound like easy questions, but they aren’t.
