Out of Sight, Out of Mind?
Emotions are an everyday experience, whether good or bad.

They can also have an impact on the body, which is often described as a psychosomatic state.

Memory and cognitive performance are also closely linked to both vision and one's emotional presence.

Dr. Mark Estren joins Dr. Abel to discuss the connection between vision, memory and emotional states.

As a leading psychologist, Dr. Estren has recognized the contemplation of visual perception and mood.
