In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom talks with Dr. Thomas Verny, psychiatrist and best-selling author of The Embodied Mind. He shares how observations from his work with patients led him to the concept of the embodied mind—essentially how functions we normally associate only with the brain are dispersed throughout the cells of the body. One example of this is recalling memories formed before the age of two, which traditional neuroscience postulates is not possible. This may indicate that pre-natal and peri-natal cognition is much more robust than originally believed.

Dr. Thomas R Verny is a psychiatrist, Founding President of APPPAH, the Association for Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health, Founding Editor-in Chief of the APPPAH Journal, author of  47 scientific papers and eight books including the international best seller, The Secret Life of the Unborn Child, published in 27 countries and the recently released, The Embodied Mind. The Embodied Mind shows how intelligence and consciousness—traits traditionally attributed to the brain alone—permeate our entire being. Whether or not we can consciously access a memory, the lived event has left an imprint on our cells and tissues. This is one reason why heart transplants carry memories of the donors.
