The horse and the brain

Arles - Littérature - Tuesday 22 February 2022 between 6.30 pm and 8 pm. - Free

MEETING - DEBATE WITH :

Hélène VIRUEGA-BOGROS, founder of the Equiphoria Institute, equine specialist in mental health and learning

Manuel GAVIRIA, rehabilitation doctor, doctor in neurosciences, specialist in neurological rehabilitation

Hippotherapy consists of a rehabilitation method carried out through the movement of the horse at walking pace. For this, the choice of horse is essential as well as the rhythm and tempo of the support offered to the patient.

Hélène and Manuel propose, through the stories of some of the patients followed at the Institut Équiphoria, to help you discover the intimate link that exists between the horse and the brain. From their meeting, a reflection was born which gradually led them to question the physiological mechanisms explaining the remarkable results of the patients followed, whatever their neurological deficit.

Their collaboration allowed them to explore connections never before formally proposed between the benefits of the horse in therapy and the world of neuroscience.

At the end of the meeting, signing of the book Le pouvoir du lien, published by Actes Sud.

Organised in partnership with the school and university Domaine du Possible
