Glyphology is also popularly known as Dermatoglyphics as well. Dermatoglyphics has documentation of research data and results dated 200 years back. Dr. Harold Cummins is acknowledged as the Father of Dermatoglyphics. He studied all aspects of finger print analysis in fields as varied as anthropology, embryology and genetics. His famous Down syndrome studies accurately predicted the genetic link to the disease upon study of finger print patterns. The findings revealed that most children with learning difficulties have different fingerprints compared to normal children. The Glyphological Assessment technique has been developed by scientists and research experts based on Genetics, Embryology, Dermatoglyphics, Psychology and Neuroscience.
Many research papers have elaborated on the link between finger print patterns, different diseases and psychological conditions. Further studies aroused educators’ interest in establishing a link between fingerprint pattern distribution and innate comfort & discomfort zones potential distributions. Significant investigations have also been carried out into the Dermatoglyphics indicators of congenital heart disease, leukemia, cancer, coeliac disease, intestinal disorders, rubella embryopathy, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia as well as other forms of mental illness. Most of this research has only been published in the pages of medical journals.
Glyphology can reveal our intrinsic qualities and talents.
