Why We Like This Video:

Everyone has memories, good or bad, our brains are working to protect us at all cost. Memory is very important for high cognitive performance. But what if a memory from a childhood trauma that involved reading is affecting someone’s ability to improve their overall cognition? These are things we need to question and explore as we are helping clients improve their cognitive ability. Understanding the differences in reflecting self and experiencing self could be the key to unlocking higher cognitive functions.
