Description

The Huberman Lab Podcast discusses Neuroscience: how our brain and its connections with the organs of our body controls our perceptions, our behaviors, and our health. We also discuss existing and emerging tools for measuring and changing how our nervous system works. Dr. Andrew Huberman is a tenured Professor of Neurobiology and Ophthalmology at Stanford School of Medicine. His laboratory studies neural regeneration and neuroplasticity, and brain states such as stress, focus, fear, and optimal performance. For more than 20 years, Dr. Huberman has consistently published original research findings and review articles in top-level peer-reviewed journals including Nature, Science, Cell, Neuron, and Current Biology. He is a regular member of several National Institutes of Health review panels, and a Fellow of the McKnight Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trusts. Dr. Huberman regularly consults for technology development companies, professional athletic organizations, and for various units of U.S. and Canadian Special Operations.

Today's episode provides a host of information on what makes us sleepy, sleep soundly, and feel awake and alert. It covers a broad range of tools for anyone wishing to improve their sleep and wakeful state. The science and logic for each tool is described. Please put your questions related to Episodes 1 & 2 in the comments section below so I can address them in Episode 3 "Office Hours".

How Your Brain Works & Changes | Episode 1
01:02:31

Today’s episode provides an introduction to how the nervous system works to create sensations, perceptions, emotions, thoughts and behaviors, as well as how we can change our nervous system— a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity. The information sets the stage for all Huberman Lab Podcast episodes that follow by covering neurons, synapses, brain chemicals and the rhythms that control our ability to focus, learn and sleep… and more.

Thank you for your interest in science. We'll see you next week.

Welcome to the Huberman Lab Podcast
04:23

Welcome to the Huberman Lab Podcast, a new podcast from Dr. Andrew Huberman. 

Podcast can also be found on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/c/AndrewHubermanLab

My plan in creating this podcast is to discuss Neuroscience: how our brain and its connections with the organs of our body controls our perceptions, our behaviors, and our health. I will also discuss tools for measuring and changing how our nervous system works.

Upcoming episodes will cover: sleep and how to get better at sleeping, learning, dreaming, as well as motivation and focus and how to access more focus. We will also cover neuroplasticity, fear, and stress. Along the way I will discuss behavioral tools ("do's and don'ts"), and the role of nutrition, exercise, supplements, prescription drugs and electronic devices for measuring and changing the way our nervous systems work.

To suggest additional topics, please leave a review for the show along with a suggestion for desired topics. You can also head over to the YouTube Welcome Message (https://youtu.be/4b6bwcWK6GE) and enter suggestions in the comments section. I will shape the content of future podcasts accordingly.

Thank you for your interest in science!
