With her academic focus in cognitive neuroscience, Rameses has found herself merging her world of scientific practices with the artist freedoms of dance.

Rameses utilizes the arts as a vehicle to guide her and her dancers into a more empathic domain for more productive and authentic potentials for sharing of one’s mind through one’s body.
