How your movements can heal your brain | Joaquin Farias | TEDxNapoli



Can certain neurological conditions make us forget how to move? In this talk Dr. Farias explains how is possible to awaken silent neural pathways in the brain, bringing lost movements, emotions and memories back to life.

Joaquin Farias is the director of the Neuroplastic Training Institute Toronto and researcher at the University of Toronto. Since 1996, He has been working on providing effective alternative and complementary care for patients affected by Dystonia and Parkinsons' Disease by pioneering new theories on neuroplasticity induced by movement therapy.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
