Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Scientist at a Brain Gym Workshop? It's like being an atheist at Mass:

Right on!

I've never understood the popularity of this - as a probationer last year and a student the year before, I think about 5 or 6 people "revealed" the secret world of BRAIN GYM to me. I found it a bit curious - it seems to have taken a sickening leap forward since then to what you witnessed!

Down with bad CPD!

I am fairly suspicious of brain gym and such things as learning styles which seem to have a wee bit of science mixed up with this that and the next thing. (I too did a science degree a long, log time ago). In our primary however out gym teacher shows us exercises based on Neuro-Developmental Therapy (INPP What is Neuro-Developmental Delay NDD?) which seem to me to show more promise with less pseudo-science.

I enjoy Ben Goldacre's Bad Science column in the Saturday Guardian and remember what he had to say about Brain Gym. At the time I'd never heard of any Scottish schools - or brains - getting involved, and felt suitable smug. I'm now very disappointed. I will be very interested to see the costs. Good luck with your investigation.

"my computer scientist friends scoffed at the fact that Psychology was a science subject. "

That was very rude of them, considering "computer science" is not a science at all, while parts of psychology certainly are.
