Tonight we discuss “Noetic Sciences” & IONS Discovery Lab founded by Edgar Mitchell
Helané Wahbeh is the Director of Research at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University. She is clinically trained as a naturopathic physician and her research training includes a Master of Clinical Research and two post-doctoral research fellowships. Dr. Wahbeh’s studies have focused on complementary and alternative medicine, mind-body medicine, stress, and post-traumatic stress disorder, especially how these influence our physiology and affect health and healing. Her VET-MIND study funded by NIH examined the mechanisms of meditation for combat veterans with PTSD. Her current research interests include healing stress and trauma, examining mechanisms of mind-body medicine, and rigorously studying extended human capacities.
