A neurobiological model of dance therapy with blended research methods

Rebecca Barnstaple


This workshop invites participants to investigate specific dance techniques and their effects in terms of lived experience and brain-based biological changes. We will discuss applications for these techniques with clinical populations, and I will share my research-based hypothesis as to how techniques such as these may promote change in the nervous system. I will also demonstrate the use of our electroencephalography (EEG) equipment and discuss current research in dance

neuroscience, with both expert and clinical populations, exploring the implications of these studies for dance movement therapy.
