Andrew Huberman, Ph.D. (neuroscientist, host of Huberman Lab Podcast) joins us to talk about the beauty and utility of biology. He provides practical tips for stress regulation and improving sleep, and explains the benefits of natural light and cold exposure. Mayim and Dr. Huberman discuss the neuroscience behind acting and mimicry, the physical symptoms of workaholism, and the correlation between dopamine, focus, and motivation. They consider the use of self-hypnosis to regulate your internal state, the negative side effects of social media on our physical bodies, and what the deprivation of healthy physical connection can lead to. They explain ways to control adrenaline to benefit us in times of crisis, the relationship between our eyes and our internal state, and the origins of EMDR and clinical hypnosis.
The Huberman Lab Podcast discusses neuroscience: how our brain and its connections with the organs of our body control 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.
