Dean Clark Invited to Speak at Esther Thelen Research Symposium on "Embodying Neuroscience"
Dean Jane Clark gave an invited talk on August 30th at the 2012 Esther Thelen Research Symposium focused on "Embodying Neuroscience." Dean Clark's lecture "Through the Lens of Development: Order and Disorder in Action" used examples from her work with typically developing infants and children to examine coordination in children who struggle to find order and control in their actions, as is the case in children with Developmental Coordination Disorder. Her talk formed the basis for a discussion of movement intervention techniques and strategies.
The symposium, held in conjunction with the annual Feldenkrais MethodÂ® Conference, honors the memory of Esther Thelen whose work had a profound impact our understanding of human development, particularly infant motor development.
