NeuroScienceLab.com™ is part of the Wilmington Institute Network of Trial and Settlement Sciences. The WIN laboratories in Dallas and Houston include simulated courtrooms, arbitration, mediation, and consultation rooms, as well as state of the art technology. The neuroscience applications of legal dispute resolution reveal WIN's commitment to the future of this exciting new field.

"My 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."
