    Okay, I'm in! SoundsTrue does great stuff.

    Neuroscience has taught me so much about psychology. The smartest people, including Dr. Sarno, understand that mind and brain/body are one, so that if we understand the brain/body, then we understand the body. He talks about various brain regions in The Divided Mind and connects them to Freud's concept of the Id. In his most recent article for doctors and scientists, he also referenced a popular book on the neuroscience of consciousness and talked about the brain regions involved with TMS.

    The first speaker, Dan Siegel, is terrific. Many TMS Therapists are excited about his work, so he's definitely one not to miss.

    Dan Siegel is on right now, it's a live summit, but audio will be available for today, tomorrow. The interview is remarkable, fantastic stuff!

    Thanks, Mike2014. The TMS Therapists seem excited about him, but I don't know much about him. Can you post the link? I think I missed it.

    Thanks so much! If you poke through the source of the page, they have a direct link to the MP3 file:
    http://soundstrue-ha.s3.amazonaws.com/oce/neuroscience-summit/media/NSTS_DaneSiegel_05_10_16.mp3
    I'll be downloading it and giving it a listen.

    As you may know, there are special empathy neurons called mirror neurons. They fire when we see someone doing something and set off the same circuits that would go off if we did the same thing. This suggests that empathy may be wired into our brains. (I'm probably simplifying, but I'm not up on the most recent research.)

    Is that what he talked about?

    Hi Forest,

    Thanks for the link. He also mentioned joy, negative, generousity and focus states as having their own circuitry and referenced the work of Richard Davidson, whom I'm not familiar with. But didn't reference or discuss mirror neurons as he did in the below youtube clip....



    I particularly enjoyed the section on emotional differentiation, linkage and integration which can be particularly useful in restoring and cultivating ones own emotional intelligence and health. By practicing all components of meditation (insight, compassion, loving-kindness) and/or the use of therapy.

    Overall, the interview was very insightful and some great questions were asked in the second half.

    A link to the Human Connectnome Project which was mentioned in the talk.

    I'd highly recommend it to anyone who has time.

    Yep, this is a fantastic. I've missed the beginning so will have to revist when the audio is available.

    I'm enjoying the Summit so far. The advantage to watching it live is that you get to see the slides, but the audio recordings are good too.

    I'm reading Dan Siegel's book Mindsight, and enjoying it very much. It's full of real life examples of using neuroscience with psychotherapy to help people change.

    Wow! Humans are getting pretty smart--despite what you see in the news.:)

    I like the analogy that one speaker used that humans trying to understand existence and consciousness is like an ant walking across your keyboard trying to understand how a computer works.

    The presentation on Neurosculpting is excellent. Very practical information on how to change your response to stress.
