The Neuromotion Team
Founding Advisor, Co-inventor of the Neuromotion Technology, Chairman Scientific Advisory Board
Joseph Gonzalez-Heydrich, MD is the Director of the Developmental Neuropsychiatry Clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital and an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Frustrated with needing to prescribe medication to help children not loose control of their anger or anxiety, he realized that the neurobiology of emotional regulation predicts that with emotional control training many of his patients would not need psychiatric medication. He conceived of the original idea behind Neuro'Motion, that a computer game requiring emotional calm in the midst of fast paced challenge would movitate children to learn how to keep calm when challenged in the real world. He assembled the initial Neuro'Motion science team and acts as the Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board.
