Just for a minute, imagine your brain as two characters from Star Trek. There’s Captain Kirk who is very emotional, the other is Spock who is very analytical.
Now combine them (for you Star Trek fans, this may be difficult, but try).
Marsha Lucas, PhD, author of Rewire Your Brain for Love, and a neuropsychologist with a special interest in interpersonal neurobiology, uses this Star Trek example to talk about the importance of brain integration for improving relationships.
Brain integration is important for relationships but it can be tricky, especially because our society has a tendency to focus on left-brain analytical functions while downplaying the right-brain, emotional side.
We’ll get more into this in our Brain Science Webinar Series.
