GreySmith Cerebellar Involvement in Recruitment Protocol 1a
Detecting the Telegraphing of Recruitment to the Cerebellar Cortex, Fluorescent Version

This is one of two alternate protocols for achieving the same result, it is however more dependent on the Anatomy of the subject and the skill of the experimenter and may therefore not be practical The problem happens because the area under study is at the base of the skull and may therefore be dependent on the skull configuration for its chances of success. The hypothesis that it tests is that recruitment of specialized areas such as the fusiform Facial Area, telegraphs to the cerebellum. There is no problem with accuracy in this test, since the test will reliably detect activity of even one neuron in the treated area, however other factors may make it less than ideal.
This protocol tests the hypothesis that not only motor activations but also recruitment of specialized processing modules is telegraphed to the cerebellum. This has implications in that it suggests that the brain can have skill in processing as well as skill in actions, and proposes that the mechanism by which that skill is generated lies in the cerebellum and related neural structures.
The main difference between this and the GSCIRP1 lies in the technology used to test the hypothesis. It is expected that limitations in the accuracy of the MEG might invalidate GSCIRP1, if that is the case this protocol should be used instead. Unfortunately it is not without its own caveats having to do with the structural integrity of the skull in the location of the attachment of the spine to the skull. The problem lies with the location of the cerebellum near the brain stem, and thus its proximity to the base of the skull where the spine attaches. It is no part of this experiment to cripple the subjects so that they cannot function normally when not under study, and so the structural integrity of the base of the skull should not be sacrificed in order to bare the cerebellum in order to do this experiment. If after having taken these caveats into account, the experimenter is still sure that they can do the experiment, then the nature of the experiment is to inject fluorescent dyes into the Purkinje cell layer of the cerebellum and monitor for evidence that there is a flashing of one purkinje cell, that indicates binocular rivalry. If such a cell flashes in time with the expected binocular rivalry, then it might indicate cerebellar involvement in recruitment of specialized processing modules. This in turn might indicate the presence of skilled sequences of specialized processing, or mixed sequences involving specialize processing modules intermixed with motor activations. Implying in turn the existence of a Macro language made up of such triggers.
