About a half year ago I saw a show (I believe it was NOVA) that had an excerpt
about a psycho-metric study done of where a "movie" was made of rapid
brain scans (MRI or CAT? Not sure). One of the more interesting findings was
that a clinically depressed patient showed signs of clinical normalcy during
the period of time that he was reminded of a happy moment in his life.
I believe that this was done at Columbia University, but I am not sure of it.
Does anyone know anything about this study (School, Researcher Names etc.) or
about any similar studies?
I have made the acquaintance Dr. George Pransky co-founder of the
"Psychology of Mind" school of thought (Pransky Associates in LaConner Wa.). He
is currently working on a book detailing his approach and developing a Ph.D
program and indicated to me that he would be very interested in finding out
more about the details of the study that I just related to y'all and/or
developing a professional relationship/correspondence with parties involved
with these type of studies..
please send all email to falley at silvertone.princeton.edu (as I am temporarily
using a friend's account today!).
Thanks in advance for any info, time, effort or consideration on your part.
