Neuroscientist Andrew Huberman On Changing Your Biology With Behavior
How does behavior affect your biology? What does neuroscience say about hypnosis, breath work, and meditation? Are behavioral tools more powerful than pharmaceuticals in changing your state and focus?
Today we dig into these big questions and more with neuroplasticity overlord Dr. Andrew Huberman, back for a second, highly anticipated return to the show.
Given that Dr. Huberman’s first appearance on the podcast (RRP #533) has amassed over 10 million views on YouTube alone, chances are you’re already familiar with this tenured professor of neurobiology and ophthalmology at Stanford University School of Medicine, where he runs The Huberman Lab, which studies neural regeneration, neuroplasticity, and brain states such as stress, focus, fear, and optimal performance.
Subsequent to our first podcast in January of 2021, Andrew launched The Huberman Lab Podcast, which has quickly become a sensation. Within a year of launch, it has ascended to one of the top, most listened to podcasts in the world.
Today we pick up where we last left off, diving deep into a wide array of fascinating topics brimming with actionable takeaways, including:
the emerging field of mind-body neuroscience;
the neuroscience of ADHD, focus, hypnosis, and processing trauma;
how to leverage light, temperature, breath, and sleep to better control your biology;
several behavioral tools for achieving optimal performance states;
how to cultivate learning states and the power of something called gap effects; and
many other fascinating topics
