Aliza Stewart on Daniel Wolpert’s TED Talk “The Real Reason for Brains”


I have come across a wonderful TEDTalk by Daniel Wolpert, called “The Real Reason for Brains”.

As I listened to him, it became quite clear to me that he is describing processes for which the Feldenkrais Method has offered for decades a concrete and clinical applications in everyday life.

I was especially struck by the connection he describes between Sensory Feedback, Movement Command from the Brain and Action. He explains the inaccuracy of the sensory feedback – the sensory “noise” – as having negative consequences in the resulted action.

In my workshops I describe this phenomenon as corrupted proprioception, which leads to inaccurate perception of ourselves in movement.

The Feldenkrais method works to clean up the sensory noise that arises from faulty habits, so that our movements become efficient and healthy.

The value of clarifying perception for alleviating pain, improve performance and knowing how to deal with adversity, is tremendous.

Please let me or Paris know if you have any questions regarding the Feldenkrais Method or the Baltimore Feldenkrais training Program
