Cognitive Immobility

Spread the love
Sometimes we can not let go of the past, which bugs us
Our minds are entrapped in places and experiences from the past
"No home is truly a home; even the previous home"


This webpage is for the project ‘Cognitive Immobility: The Homeless Mind’. The project aims to study the phenomenon of cognitive immobility further to include not just aspects of migration but also broken relationships, dementia, abandonment by family/friends, cultural traditions, emotional abuse, trauma, loss of home, and bereavement. The findings from the project will be published in peer-reviewed academic journals and blogs and presented at conferences.


If you’ve moved from one country to another or from one life experience to another, you may have left something behind; as a result, you may constantly seek to reclaim it, relive those experiences, or even wish to forego them. While this is ongoing, you may suffer from cognitive immobility.
