Research

Concentration is a key human ability engaged in survival and social achievement; but it is very fragile. Compared to how easily we can lose concentration, there is very little understanding on how to improve it. In my research I am interested in any tool that could be used to boost concentration. Among other techniqies, I am now researching in Selft-Talk, Martial Arts and Differential Outcomes
