Our Fear Memory

  • We all have a fear memory, where we feel scared of remembering a tragic event from the past.
  • The brain has the ability to make new neuronal connections and remove older ones.
  • The new findings on how the brain eliminates bad memories open up opportunities to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) and other anxiety-related issues.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
