Default Yeah!

So everything keeps proving that I have been right for years!
I think I will go to my room and admire myself for a few hours.

Proud to see research into dance, music, exercise, mind over body and body over mind, is being revived.

I was diagnosed in 2004; then for several years tried, with scant success, to get neurologists and dancers together – they both speak of movement, and they speak the same language, but do not speak to each other. The artists would show up – although often prejudiced against scientists; scientists topped that by just not showing up at all.

Here are 3 chapters I assembled 6 or 7 years ago; the response from the Parkinson’s Industry at the time ranged all the way from silence to sneering contempt.

Chapter 10: Dancers talk about neurology more than neurologists talk about dancing. The neurologists are imbalanced.

Chapter 11: Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis. Dancers and Neurologists get together: The Neural Basis of Human Dance
