Dr. Stephen Peters, Psy.D., ABN, Diplomate in Neuropsychology and currently the Director of Intermountain Health Care’s Center for Brain Health.
Dr. Peters is a neuroscientist specializing in brain functioning. As a horse brain researcher, he has given numerous presentations in the U.S. and Canada, performed many horse brain dissections, and is the co-author with Martin Black of Evidence-Based Horsemanship. He also collaborates with BHPS director, Maddy Butcher, on HorseHead: Brain Science to Improve Your Horsemanship.
His presentation will provide an overview of the organization and function of the equine nervous system, the importance of neurochemistry especially the dopamine system in reward and learning.
Knowledge of the neurochemistry and neurofunctioning of the horses’s brain and its application will increase one’s ability to understand and read horses.
“Most horsemen agree that timing, feel, and balance are the holy trinity of horsemanship. They are also key elements of this book. The timing couldn’t be better. We are in the midst of a revival of interest in horsemanship. People are hungry for factual information and intelligent conversation.”
