    "Emotions and Cognition: When children's emotions are strong, cognitive functions can be profoundly affected"
    with Leon Hoffman, M.D.

    Neural pathways responsible for cognition and those responsible for emotions are always interconnected.When emotions are strong, our cognitive functions can be profoundly affected. Therefore, psychological approaches, plus remediation, may be helpful to children with cognitive problems.
