A health anthropologist, Jean-Dominique Michel has been working as a public health expert for government services and health care systems since 1995. His areas of specialization are the determinants of health, the processes of recovery and salutogenesis, as well as organizational health - the way in which structures, language modalities, processes and relationships impact the well-being and performance of the employees of an institution or company. He is a founding partner of the BrainFIT Institute, offering neuroeducational programs for the worklife. The ongoing technological revolution challenges our ability to adapt to an increasingly demanding lifestyle. Our brains - which have evolved over the ages to perform in a certain type of environment - are now faced with constraints that go beyond their native systems. Neuroscience and anthropology contain keys to the philosophers' "know thyself", but also to living well, with appropriate mental strategies, in today's world.
