Cognition Training I

Cognition is a psychological term for comprehension. It is more than perception; it is the immediate discovery, awareness, rediscovery, or recognition of information in various forms for comprehension or understanding.

Cognition is often the primary process for learning, so it is important to have this ability well-trained and ready to use!
