Visual Perceptual Performance
of what we know about cognition has its origins in the 20th century and
has changed little over the years. While it may seem that a lot of
discoveries have been made, this is not really the case. It's
more a matter that areas of cognition, memory for example,
have only been more widely categorised, meaning things have only become
increasingly complex and complicated. And, in terms of treating
neuro-cognitive disorders, very little progress had actually been
We do not have to look far to see how limited the interventions on offer really are. Kids who struggle in school do not have the cause of their struggle treated and addressed; instead, their situation is managed, and education - a decidedly non-therapeutic system - attempts to teach kids in spite of their struggle. Stroke rehab has hardly changed at all over the past 30-plus years, and neither have brain injury therapies. And, when it comes to dementia, therapy has only recently been considered an option in the US, but elsewhere it seems we are all hoping for a magic pill to fix the problem.
We just need to ask how we generate those cognitive abilities to discover that most of what we understand is based on what is thought or imagined to be the case. This is the reason why contemporary therapies produce such limited outcomes. The understanding that they are based on is incredibly superficial and the outcomes reflect this.
The doorway that visual perceptual performance has opened for us has revolutionised our understanding of all human performance. The reality is that all performance arises from the exact same place and is just being expressed through different avenues or channels in the body - neurological, cognitive, physiological, psychological, social and emotional. However, all performance occurs in response to what is being perceived.
|The intimate and profound dynamic, which exists between perception and performance, is at the core of our human experience; and, understanding how this works, allows us to improve upon performance in some truly astounding ways.|
