The Key Points to an Elman Induction:
- It should never last more than 4 minutes – ideally 2- 3 minutes ( before Deepeners – like the Beach, losing your name, Down levels A to B to C etc)
- Four Key Parts
- Eyes Close and Test
- Count to 10 ( or Fractionation)
- Arm Drop
- Lose the numbers
- Deepeners – Lose name and down levels A to B , B to C.

By 17 mins we have set up Ideomotor responses and done a first test Regression
