The newer science of coordination, named, pioneered and developed by J. A. Scott Kelso at the Center for Complex Systems an Brain Sciences, Boca Raton Florida. Coordination dynamics—a mathematically expressed and experimentally tested theory that reconciles the scientific language of "states" with the novel dynamical language of "tendencies"—attests to the complementary nature inherent in human brains and behavior. It may explain, why we (and nature) appear to partition things, events, and ideas into pairs.
Glenwood and Martha Creech Chair in Science. Professor of Complex Systems and Brain Sciences Professor of Psychology, Biological Sciences and Biomedical Science. Team Leader of the Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory. Research interests: The problem of coordination in living things; connecting levels of brain and behavior through theory and experiment; principles and mechanisms of coordination dynamics (e.g. in sensorimotor integration, learning, perception, language, and development) using brain imaging (EEG, MEG, fMRI) and behavioral measures. Co-author along with David Engstrøm of The Complementary Nature (MIT Press 2006). Founder and Pioneer of Coordination Dynamics.
