    Pranav Yadav: Exploring the Brain & Subconscious - What Makes Us, Us?

    Have you ever wondered exactly how our subconscious mind works and what it captures as memory? In this episode, Kanika interviews Pranav Yadav, Founder & CEO of Neuro-Insight US. He shares how his company has patented technology to track synapses in the brain when it’s consuming various forms of advertising. Not only is this useful when targeting moms (who manage 85% of the household spending which totals nearly $3 trillion per year), it gives us insight into what our mind chooses to retain and how we can apply this in understanding our children. From the pros and cons of boarding school to metaphors from the Bhagavad Gita, Pranav shares his personal experiences that we can parlay into practical application. This conversation is sure to challenge your thinking in the best way possible.
