Only through continuous orientation with time and space can we learn, react, and avoid injury
Watch how the latest research on orientation is changing the way brain health is defined, managed, and treated.
Our eyes are used by the brain to perpetually synchronize with the world around us, providing continuous “orientation” with time and space. The byproduct of being oriented is focus, or what is more commonly known as attention. Our ability to learn, react, and avoid injury is based on the brain’s ability to maintain focus and to sustain it at a high level. When this ability is diminished, we become “disoriented” and the risk of injury increases.
