Event Details

Exploring the science behind the Alexander Technique

He will introduce several phenomena that are currently being studied in movement science and sport psychology and which might have a bearing on our understanding of mechanisms underpinning the Alexander Technique.

These include such things as the einstellung effect, the kohnstamm phenomenon, ironic effects, the Quiet Eye and the Grenier Technique. We’ll have fun exploring how some of these phenomena might inform our understanding of the AT and might serve as profitable directions for further research and understanding. Professor Anderson will also briefly introduce us to a couple of the specific studies he has done on the AT.
