Modern neuroscience rests on the assumption that our thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and behaviours emerge from electrical and chemical communication between brain cells. It is these very same neuroscientific discoveries that have facilitated the development of the PRISM Brain Mapping.

To facilitate understanding, PRISM uses colours to illustrate the behaviour preferences. Although the PRISM model is a metaphor for brain functioning, the PRISM maps represent the dynamic interaction that takes place within the brain and is based on the principle that no one part of the brain does solely one thing and no one part of the brain acts alone. All our thoughts, emotions and actions are the results of many parts of the brain acting together.

The PRISM chart represents the relationships between the right hemisphere (Green and Blue) on the PRISM model and the left hemisphere (Gold and Red) on the PRISMmodel, plus the front half of the brain – the frontal lobes (Gold and Green) and the rear half of the brain – the posterior lobes (Red and Blue) i.e. those to the rear of the central sulcus. Red and Gold preferences indicate how a person will tend to behave when engaged in a task and/or when under pressure to achieve results. Green and Blue preferences indicate how a person will tend to behave in a social setting when establishing rapport with others. As the person switches between these two hemisphere modes, he or she may display very different – even opposite – behaviours.
