How Retained Primitive Reflexes Impact Brain Function at Any Age

Join me in a conversation with Dr. Peter Scire, as he explains how retained primitive reflexes impact brain function at any age.

Dr. Peter Scire has dedicated his academic and clinical career over the past 15 years to working with complex neurological disorders in both adults and children. He received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University as well as extensive post-doctoral training in functional neurology with concentrations in childhood developmental disorders, vestibular rehabilitation and brain injury rehabilitation. In addition to his functional neurology training Dr. Scire has amassed thousands of hours of continued education in the areas of functional immunology, functional endocrinology and advanced concepts in neurochemistry and nutrition over the past decade. Since 2004, Dr. Scire has collaborated with Dr. Robert Melillo the Founder of Brain Balance Centers and Hemispheric Integration Therapy.

After a decade of working with children, Dr. Scire established Scire Integrative Health Center in Atlanta which specializes in complex neurological and metabolic disorders utilizing the latest advancements in neurological rehabilitation and diagnostic testing. He is a founding member of the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation. Dr. Scire served as the President of IAFNR from 2015-2016. When away from his practice Dr. Scire is a father to his soon-to-be 18 year old son Nicholas and his 13 year old daughter Emma.
