Combining working experience as a dance-movement therapist, dance teacher and exercise instructor, with PhD in neurophysiology of motor control and two post-doctoral fellowships: in neuroscience of emotions and in brain-behavior interaction, I have been investigating and promoting, during my academic career, movement-emotion interactions and their applications in health and disease.

During the past few years, I have also studied the Feldenkrais and the Anat Baniel: Neuromovement methods, and was fascinated and amazed by their effects on the body and brain. I am now practicing these methods as a practitioner, and plan to investigate the theoretical basis underlying their effects on brain neuroplasticity, and on learning and cognition.
