This Discussion Table convenes an interdisciplinary team of four researchers who embarked on a study in March 2023 focusing on several pairs of curanderos-patients in Puebla. Employing an interdisciplinary neuro-anthropological approach, the team gathered neural data (EEG-hyperscanning), conducted interviews, and recorded videos from 30 healing sessions. The panel will feature an introduction to the project and in-depth discussions thereof.
