The Brain Always Wins: Human Performance Starts with Health
July 18, 2017
Hosted by Catherine Calarco
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. Dr. Sullivan’s experience also includes such work within the National Basketball Association, Major League Soccer, English Premier League, Australian Football League and Olympic national teams. He is an expert consultant for the military and law enforcement in regards to both welfare and performance needs.
