Neuroscientist Eamonn Walsh shares some basic principles of how the brain interacts with our moving bodies, reflecting on the varied qualities of information held in our neurons (such as the colour red or the smell of coffee in the morning), then touching on free will, hypnosis, movement, dancing and writing in this talk.
This talk was part of Crossing Borders 2012 and was presented in partnership with London Contemporary Dance School and Dance Umbrella.
Eamonn Walsh worked as a petroleum engineer in the Netherlands before returning to Ireland to study Psychology at Trinity College Dublin. Continuing his studies at UCL’s Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, his PhD and research focussed on the psychology of movement. Eamonn currently works as a researcher at King’s College London using neuroimaging techniques (functional magnetic resonance imaging fMRI) and hypnosis as research tools to investigate thought and movement components in writing.
