"EID is a great quarterly, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with it," Stuart-Buttle says in the article. "I hope to bring out more theme-based issues that, over time, will build a useful archive of information for the practitioner. In addition, each issue will aim to explore the different perspectives of the topic, both cognitive and physical. I plan to try and broaden the exposure of the publication to practitioners outside the society."
