An increasing number of brain scientists, doctors, nurses, therapists, teachers, parents, and others in the helping professions are seeking out Anat Baniel and beginning to use the brain plasticity strategies and principles of Anat Baniel Method NeuroMovement.

View the videos below of Dr. Michael Merzenich, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, and Martha Herbert discussing why they support Anat Baniel’s work and Method.

Endorsements for Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®

From several decades of research, summarized in many thousands of published reports, we scientists have defined the ‘rules’ governing brain plasticity in neurological terms. We now know how to drive brains to change for the better. It has been a great wonder to me, then, that my friend Anat Baniel, working in parallel along a completely different path, has defined almost exactly the same rules.”
–Michael Merzenich, PhD, Neuroscientist, Professor Emeritus UCSF, Winner of the Kavli Prize in Neuroscience, and Author of Soft-Wired: How The New Science Of Brain Plasticity Can Change Your Life

Read Dr. Merzenich’s full foreword to Anat Baniel’s book Kids Beyond Limits.

“The approach here, far wiser, far more subtle, truly holistic, far more ingenious, far more in accord with how brain development occurs, shows ways to access the child’s own brain plasticity and yields far greater results, so that the children can spontaneously grow from within.”
– Norman Doidge, MD, Author of The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing; Faculty, University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry; Research Faculty, Columbia University Department of Psychiatry, Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research
