Embodied Poetry - biosemiotic body art performance of affective poetry

During this show I will create embodied poetry – using my software as I did with plants before. The computer will read aloud word and my body will react on them, next in the reversed process my body reaction will be interpreted by the software I created backward into the words. 7 more words

Researchers Find Textbook-Altering Link Between Brain, Immune System

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. 818 more words

roisinguihen reblogged this on All In Our Head and commented:

Though the title of this very blog may lead one to suppose that the processes of human thought, feeling and behaviour are "All in Our Heimgresad" this, in fact, couldn't be further from the case. The human brain is directly and intimately connected with the body of the human organism. We think what we think, feel what we feel, we are who we are and do what we do both because our brains are wired up in a particular way and because our bodies are configured and composed in a unique manner. The following review of the remarkable discovery of direct, previously undetected connections between the human brain and the immune system is just one example of the reciprocal relationship between the mind and the body, suggesting the significance of the concept of the "embodied brain"...an idea that will be explored in much more depth in a series of upcoming posts. Do stay tuned :)
