What is cognition?


Does the nervous system and brain fascinate you as much as it fascinates me?

I am in awe with the intricate communication and connection it has with itself and the other systems of the body.

I have deep respect and appreciation for how powerful it is… and therefore, how powerful I am. How powerful we are.

Here’s some information you may find interesting.

Cognition/ Mental processes include:

🧠 Focus
🧠 Attention
🧠 Memory
🧠 Inhibition
🧠 Judgement
🧠 Learning
🧠 Creativity
🧠 Decisions
🧠 Motor Skills

Cognitive Skills/ Functions associated with the Left/ Logical & Right/ Aesthetic hemispheres of the brain:

📚 words (spelling)
📚 verbal meaning, vocabulary in language
📚 details- rules
📚 analysis
📚 sequential ordering
📚 academically learned information
📚 consciousness- reasoning
🎨 images, pictures, colors
🎨 music and feelings
🎨 whole process
🎨 creativity
🎨 practical- common sense knowledge
🎨 spiritual- mythical
🎨 meditation, spontaneous ideas, subconscious

Let’s not forget the brain’s anatomy and its functions (e.g. the cerebellum’s responsibility for coordinating voluntary movements like posture, balance and speech), nor all the nerves that run throughout the body.

No wonder we are so beautifully complex!

Do you consider yourself more left or right brained? Or do you effortlessly oscillate between the two? Remember, you have the ability for both. In fact, different situations require you to use the “least preferred/ habitual” side. It is often recommended that you explore and challenge yourself with different activities to keep the brain active, agile and healthy.

There is no question that our society prefers left brain qualities and thankfully, things are changing. Slowly but surely, we are appreciating and understanding the value of what the right brain offers. Most importantly rather than separating and undermining one from the other, we are seeing it (and ourselves) as a whole entity.

I personally like to see and approach Life/ Living as an art and science.
