RECENT TEXTS FROM NIBRS

We have just completed the second conference on Movement and Cognition at Harvard Medical School, with last year's event being at Oxford University. Over three hundred and fifty attendees from the fields of Psychiatry, Neurology, Occupational & Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation- and Neuro-sciences, Biomedical Engineering and yes even the Science of Dance were represented. Among the Keynote speakers included Drs. Steve Grossberg Wang Professor of Cognitive and Neural Systems at Boston University, John Ratey, Clinical Professor of Neuropsychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of "Driven to Distraction," Robert Melillo author of Disconnected Kids, co-author of Neurobehavioral Disorders of Childhood and I, having presented the keynote lecture on "“I” and “Thou”: Cognitive-motor interactions in the development of individuation" (- a Neuroscience of 'Self'). The participant response to the lectures was overwhelming and the camaraderie, life affirming. I look forward to the next event on this interdisciplinary boundary-pushing topic next year between 22-24 July at the University of Tel-Aviv. See www.movementis.co.il and www.movementis.com.
