The neuroscience applications of legal dispute resolution reveal
WIN's commitment to the future of this exciting new field.
awareness of the vital importance of how we learn concepts and have
feelings of cooperation developed while I was at the University
of Wisconsin at the famous laboratory of Professor Harry Harlow.
I continued my studies in dispute resolution at the University of
Oklahoma where Professors Muzafer and Carolyn Sherif performed their
first classic study of dispute resolution among young people .
My interest in the neuroscience aspects of how people think about
disputes grew during forensic consultations with the renowned brain
surgeon, Dr. Wilfred Penfield of McGill University in Canada. These
insights about forensic applications were intensified when I trained
in hypnosis from the great educators, Dr. Harold Crasilneck and
Dr. Milton Erickson, and from consultations with Dr. William Kroger.
Most recently, I was inspired by the presentation of the Dali Lama
at the 35th meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Washington
D.C. He challenged behavioral scientists to apply the knowledge
of the brain and its effect on emotion, intellect, and behavior
in a constructive way consistent with the principles of moral values.
From Dr. Leslie Fehmi and Susan
Shor Fehmi, MSW at the Princeton Biofeedback Center, I have learned
their brilliant approach to open focus and brain synchrony training.
I have also benefited from collaboration with Richard Davis, MS,
LPC and Dr. Dan Galper at Southwestern Medical School on innovative
forensic applications of neuroscience."
