I believe that the unity of mind and body is an objective reality. They are not just parts somehow related to each other, but an inseparable whole while functioning. — Moshe Feldenkrais Read about a newly identified network the Somato (body)-Cognitive (mind) Action Network, or SCAN.
Calm body, calm mind, say the practitioners of mindfulness. A new study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates that the idea that the body and mind are inextricably intertwined is more than just an abstraction.

The findings represent a literal linkage of body and mind in the very structure of the brain.
