Welcome to The Whole Brain Foundation.
We are on a mission to revolutionize healthcare.

Recovery from illness and injury requires the whole team.
When providers, patients, caregivers, and friends work together, they are more effective than when they work apart.

Our work is based on The Atkinson Protocol

Healthcare systems currently lack a method for helping patients and families form plans and manage complex treatments. The Atkinson Protocol is a 12-step framework that helps guide patients and families from illness and injury through recovery.

We conduct educational research to unlock the personal health potential in all of us.

We learned how to beat the odds against a devastating illness and recovery. You can learn too.

Help Fund The Fix What ALZ You Six Month Bootcamp Challenge to Fight Chronic Diseases for Health and Wellness

It is Charlie Atkinson here in Cambridge. Thank you for all of your support. It was your support from 2012 to now that helped me return from West Nile Virus.

In June 2018, I was featured on “Tales from the ICU” that captured my journey of recovery by Channel 5 TV WCVB in Boston.

It was with your encouragement that I established The Whole Brain Foundation, Inc. in 2015, to study these remarkable and improbable health journeys and begin to share them in collaboration with the whole world. We are happy to report on our progress in 2018. I want to invite each of you to engage with us to help our research and development, so that everyone will have a thinking toolbox to improve health for longer and higher quality living.

Our Invention — The Atkinson Artificial Mind to Augment Thinking

Our research on the process to improve thinking and problem solving for wellness is based on The Atkinson Artificial Mind. This is a visual representation of learning architecture that maps to the biological, physical, and virtual worlds. We have conducted Bootcamp Training for wellness as our proof of concept project. Data from these bootcamps, some of which are presented in section 4 of this report, will be populated with patient data. This innovative 5D conceptual framework will become digital prototype. Patients will be able to create their own Personalized Wellness Protocol using this framework, results can be shared over the web in The Whole Connected Health System.

Our Vision — The Second Manhattan Project to Enrich Your Cranium

We’re thinking BIG! We envision a world where we will be able to obliterate the diseases of civilization. Our atomic bomb is behavior modification Six Month Bootcamp Training for patients and their families to:

  1. Think: Toolset AM (Artificial Mind) Augment HI (Human Intelligence) Master AI (Artificial Intelligence)
  2. Diagnose: Identify the root causes of the signs and symptoms of chronic disease
  3. Treat: Beyond medical, surgical, and pharmaceutical to test lifestyle and biological interventions
  4. Cure: Correct cellular deficiency and toxicity of metabolic dysfunction to optimize wellness
  5. Prevent: Train healthy habits and daily patterns with a Personalized Wellness Protocol


Our Challenge — The Fix What ALZ You Six Month Bootcamp Training

We’re starting small. We launched our sixth proof of concept “Fix What ALZ You” Six Month Bootcamp Training on July 1st. With two unwell but committed participants. The Bootcamp serves as a testbed to combine people, process, and prototype. Our goal for the bootcamp is to keep improving the health of participants while trying the many promising but still unproven, unaccepted, or underutilized interventions to see what works to reduce pain and dysfunction, and promote wellness.

Alpha Test: Charlie

Six years into his recovery from neuroinvasive West Nile Virus, Charlie, soon to be 82, has overcome dire predictions and death defying setbacks. He is now functioning both at home and away but with still much more wellness to be accomplished.

  • AlterG Treadmill, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), Stem Cell Therapy Panama, Keto Diet, Sleep Apps, EMDR , BEMER Peripheral Vascular Therapy, FMT, Massage, Reiki, PT Spaulding

Beta Test: Arnie and Derek

Arnie is caring for his 38 year old son Derek, who suffered from Lyme Disease and then stroke resulting from open heart surgery. After Spending nine months, immobile and mute, he is beginning to benefit from stem cell therapy and HBOT. Optimism and hope are returning to Arnie and Derek.

  • Stem Cell Therapy, HBOT, Intensive Physical Therapy, OT, Speech Therapy, Embral Ingestion at Institute of Neurological Research

Our Results — The Whole Connected Health System

Here is the progress report for Alpha Test Charlie and Beta Test Arnie/Derek, showing sample results of specific improvements from the multiple interventions during the Bootcamp.

The 2-D Whole Brain Mind

Graphic Including Creative Problem Solving Process

Charles Atkinson, EdD, Cambridge MA 02138 12/12/15

Merry Christmas 2016 and Happy New Year 2017!

I’m sending along a report of progress and a request for support for the mission and vision of The Whole Brain Foundation, Inc.

My 80th year has met all expectations. My recovery and rehabilitation has resulted in the invention of something new under the sun: a 3-D Whole Brain Artificial Mind that integrates Creativity in problem solving with Humanity and Technology. It will help Human Intelligence communicate with Artificial Intelligence.

I call it “CharliesConceptualCube.” CCC’s promise is to increase Human Intelligence many magnitudes by providing a tool to improve thinking in the three dimensions of Creativity, Humanity and Technology. It will change the paradigm for “thinking” for smarter persons and smarter phones. It is a common denominator and conceptual framework that builds on and improves upon the 2-D Whole Brain Model in our current logo.

This new improved mental framework has led to unexpected and astonishing successes. We now have a mockup on the dining room table that is constructed of cubes. It looks like the streets of Manhattan. Our strategy is to create a digital prototype that all can view, manipulate, and explore — right there on their smartphones.

It’s a “mindshot” moonshot. We’ve completed our initial organizational work, partially funded with member dues, in order to exploit this research breakthrough. We’re now a 501(c)(3) non-profit with an outstanding board of directors, advisors and staff. They serve on a volunteer, part-time or free-lance basis. Paid workers wait in the wings — ready to go in 2017 when we will seek research contracts after raising our seed capital.

I’m able to provide examples of the successful startup proof of concept projects already completed in individual health competencies. There are many candidates for future projects that integrate Creativity with all groups of Humanity and all layers of Technology. Enclosed is an executive summary, in outline form, that highlights our progress in 2016, and identifies specific program initiatives. Information is provided on how to contribute: You may send checks to Charles Atkinson, EdD, President and Founder, payable to The Whole Brain Foundation, Inc., at 6 Clement Circle, Cambridge, MA 02138.

Help Build a Visual Representation of the Mind as a Digital Prototype: The3DMind

Help Build a Visual Representation of the Mind as a Digital Prototype: The3DMind

The Whole Brain Foundation is raising funds to support research on a Framework Tool and Curriculum to Think with Pattern Recognition

On March 21, 2017, 15 people gathered in Cambridge to solidify the framework requirements for a visual representation of the mind as a digital prototype.Progress continued since that gathering, and at a May Day event this month, we celebrated the first Digital Prototype of The3DMind.

Our principal investigator, Hugh O’Donnell, Professor of Painting at the School of Visual Arts at the College of Fine Arts at Boston University, and his student, Hyoseok Kahng, helped us build this prototype using Google SketchUp Pro 2017.

We’re now turning this visual representation of the workings of the mind into an interactive pattern recognition user interface. It will serve as a connection tool between the brain and body, and between the mind and computer.

To better conceptualize what this means, think how Windows, iPhone, Android, or any other Internet Operating System serves as a hub for other applications, to run on the World Wide Web with applications like Word, Excel, Facebook, Twitter and even Uber. There is little that these hubs cannot do. With the Framework of The3DMind visualized as a city that mirrors the way the brain intuitively works with both language and pattern recognition, people will improve control of their own thinking processes.

Why is this important? The next stage in the development of the digital prototype is to make it interactive, so that we will all be able to explore first-hand the benefits of this tool. Think about it. When we can virtually touch and manipulate it ourselves, then we’ll understand the promise of The3DMind for visualizing categories of people and things, for organizing layers of knowledge and imagining next steps in the past, present and future.

Your championing this phase of the project will enable us to solicit grants from foundations and innovative research groups. Corporations will provide opportunities for Demonstration Projects. Our future lies in the inevitable emergence of three-dimensional artificial intelligence, augmented reality and machine learning that is transforming our world. The3DMind will assure that the human brain and body are critical aspects of this augmented, virtual and mixed reality.

What do we need from you? Currently, our start-up expenditures are $3,000 per month. Generous gifts of $10 to $100 or even more $1,000 or even more will help cover these operating expenses and allow us to continue prototype development iteratively to prepare and market proposals for grants and contracts. We are grateful for every contribution you extend during this May and June Campaign. Our giving page is on our website TheWholeBrainFoundation.org/donate.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation by sending a check payable to The Whole Brain Foundation, Inc.

August 2012. Infection.

August 2012. Infection.

In August of 2012, Charlie Atkinson was bitten by a mosquito in the garden outside his home in Cambridge, Mass. With an incubation period of 2 to 14 days, only one in five people infected will develop symptoms, most commonly fever, body aches, joint aches and other relatively minor ailments. Less that 1% of infected individuals develop serious and at times fatal neurologic illness, including encephalitis and poliomyelitis. Charlie was one of them. Within a week, he was in a coma, and his predictions for recovery were dire.
