The Conference (2-5 June 2013)


This conference brings together revolutionary developments in two disciplines: cognitive modifiability and the neurosciences. Neuroscience brings evidence that modifiability is possible, while cognitive modifiability shows how to make it happen. This meeting offers the opportunity for a worldwide gathering of scientists, practitioners, therapists, and educators who come from different professional perspectives, but share common interests to explore and become familiar with the developments in these related fields. The common theme is modifiability. Revolutionary developments in brain sciences support the theory and belief that basic human behaviors and functions can be modified.


The Potential to Respond to Critical Needs

From the perspective of both disciplines, it is now clear that systematic application of dynamic methods of assessment and intervention has the potential to produce cognitive and structural change. The advances of cognitive psychology and neuroscience, and the growing awareness they have generated, indicates that the three conventionally accepted resistances to change can be overcome: etiology, critical periods, and severity of the condition

However, we are at the frontier of this knowledge. There is much to be learned in order to understand the implications of the convergence of cognitive modifiability and the revolution in the brain sciences and bring them into wide acceptance and practice. The conference aims at providing researchers, psychologists, occupational and speech therapists, as well as special and regular education specialists with new conceptual tools for dealing with the question of modifiability in the laboratory, clinic, and the classroom.

Outcomes and Opportunities

The multicultural interaction between presenters and participants from different fields and professions is going to develop better understanding of the challenges and enrich us with the new available methods and ideas. Personal professional experience, research results, theories and practice will be discussed and new techniques will be presented in order to open new horizons for each one of the conference participants.

This is a critical period in the development of this dialogue and an opportunity for sharing knowledge and hope. Jerusalem, as a modern centre for technological and academic activity and research also symbolizes the historical core of human faith and soul. Is there a more appropriate place to host such a conference?
