Today, Dr John Sullivan and I talk about elite performance and the brain. Peak human performance is not about mental toughness and grit. It starts with health-most importantly brain health. Human resilience is tied to the brain and our daily habits. Technology feedback and measurements provides the real science of flow. What can we learn from elite athletes to improve our health and performance? John P. Sullivan is a Sport Scientist and Clinical Sport Psychologist. He has over twenty years of clinical and scholarly experience, and for the past 16 years he has worked with the same leading team in the National Football League (NFL) coordinating clinical care and sport science.
