Jonathan De Potter Founder & CEO Of Behold Retreats, a bespoken wellness service that facilitates journey's of self-discovery and transformation, supported by the scientifically proven benefits of plant therapy. in strategy conculting Jonathan is passionate about raising awareness on the benefits of plant medicine therapy, and it's potential to improve wellbeing and mental health outcomes. This led him to launch Behold Retreats in 2020, providing curated programs incorporating a memorable plant medicine retreat in a safe, legal highly supported setting. Jonathan has spent his career working with clients across Asia-Pacific, defining and delivering digital transformation programs. After a number of years in New Zealand, Jonathan moved to Hong Kong to work with Accenture, and most recently lived in Bangkok as country manager for the boutique consulting firm Capco. Jonathan felt that - despite an objectively great life, good friends and career success, something intangible was missing. As a result, Jonathan took a sabbatical year to travel through South America, where he attended his first Avahuasca plant medicine retreat in Peru. The retreat experience was transformational, and in his expanded dtate of consciousness, Jonathan was shown directly the mindsets and behaviors that were keeping him from reaching his potential. Returning to the corporate world, Jonathan was surprised to find he was more patient, empathetic and productive than ever before, and began researching the world of plant medicine, and facilitating retreats. Originally from Hawaii, USA, Jonathan is currently based in Bangkok, Thailand, traveling often to continue his research into the best plant medicine retreat centres around the world. He enjoys yoga, meditation, surfing, and is enrgized by big, bold ideas.

Today's episode brings you more from the world of computational neuroscience or trying to recreate parts of the brain in a computer. Brains were once thought of as just as a pile of jelly and neurons were neurons, blood was blood and support cells were called glial (for glue). Modern neuroscience has a much more advanced understanding of how the brain is composed of many different types of neurons, glial and microglial as well as complex systems to provide oxygen and nutrients and remove waste. One question however does keep popping up, why do we have so many different types of neurons? Why isn't one all-purpose neuron the way our brains evolved? In this episode, we talk about how computer models allow us to test tests that would take millions of years through evolution in the lab but a computer can do it in a few days.

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning
Brain Fact Friday on ”Using Neuroscience to Repattern Our Brain”

DID YOU KNOW that research from the Max Plank Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Science in Germany, led by neuroscientist John Dylan-Haynes has shown that the decisions we make daily to act on something, begins “automatically and without involvement of our consciousness”[i] up to 7 seconds BEFORE we take the action we are thinking about? I learned this from Adele Spraggon,[ii] the author of Shift, in this week's interview #184, while talking about her 4 STEP re-patterning process to break habits for an improved 2022 and it got me thinking about how we could use and understand this brain fact to take our results to new heights, especially as we are preparing for a New Year. If you are like me, and have ever done something and then wondered “why did I just do that?” then this episode is for you! Welcome back to the Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast for BRAIN FACT FRIDAY and EPISODE #185 on “Using Neuroscience to Repattern Our Brain.” For those new, or returning guests, welcome back! I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator from Toronto, Canada, now in Arizona, and like many of you listening, have been fascinated with learning and understanding the science behind high performance strategies that we can use to improve our productivity in our schools, our sports, and workplace environments. This week's Brain Fact Friday took me back to the late 1990s, when I worked in the personal development industry[iii] and first learned about how our results were all determined by our thoughts, feelings and actions. I'll put an image I want you to see in the show notes.   I used to have this picture taped to my wall so I could see it every day from the speaker I worked with. I'm sure he used to carry it around when he would speak to people one on one, explaining that our thoughts come first. We think an idea (I really want this goal) and then we add emotion or feeling to this goal, that charges us up as we picture ourselves in possession of that goal, changing our body state, and getting us to take action of some sort, moving us in the direction of this goal. The action steps that we take (calling someone, getting mentored and getting ideas to take NEW actions) give us new information that we didn't have before, and this in turn, changes our conditions, circumstances, and environment, taking us to places beyond where we have ever been before and we achieve our goals, the end result.  This is how I was taught how to bridge the gap between goal setting and achieving, over 20 years ago,  and how I've tackled every single goal since then.  I've taught this concept to thousands of people (of all different ages) around the world over the years through the books and courses I've created. They are old, but the information is still relevant. If you want to take a look, you can access some of my first online courses on Udemy[iv].  On the back of my first book, The Secret for Teens Revealed,[v] I even wrote something that showed how important it was to distinguish the difference between a goal setter and achiever. I wrote: “When we look at people who have achieved great things, we often believe they are more talented than the rest of us, or luckier, or more well-connected. But the only thing that separates the successful from everybody else is that they have learned to bridge the gap between setting goals and achieving them. They have developed ways of behaving and—more importantly—ways of thinking that enable them to get what they want.” I knew when I wrote that in 2008 that there was a fine line between setting and achieving goals, and that we must have an unwavering mindset around the goal we are going after, but what I didn't know, that I learned this week, was that our thinking precedes our actions by up to seven seconds and is pre-determined with a pattern or neural pathway that's created in my brain, as unique as my own fingerprint long before I take any action.  Understanding this pattern is behind why some people achieve their goals, or not, not their rock-solid mental mindset that's important, but probably wouldn't be the deal-breaker. We must understand that the old way of THINK/FEEL/ACT can lead us into a habit loop, getting the same result over and over again, that no one wants. We want NEW results, and when we use neuroscience to re-pattern our brain, we know it begins with understanding and re-patterning our brain when something isn't working for us. I learned from Adele Spraggon's book Shift that “we FEEL first (information comes in though the senses, and it changes the body's vibration). We ACT second and THINK last and that thought does not activate the sequence; it follows.”[vi] If we want to take a different action and get a new result, we need a NEW pattern that begins with being in tune with what we FEEL first, then ACT and THINK last. If you haven't listened to EPISODE #184 where Adele explains her 4 STEP approach, I would be sure to listen to this episode next, but I thought it was too important to not cover this on this week's Brain Fact Friday. To review this week's brain fact, Did you know that we can predict what someone is thinking up to seven seconds before we think that thought[vii] and “by looking at brain activity while making a decision, researchers could predict” what people were thinking before they were consciously aware of it?[viii] We know this to be true because we have all done this—taken an action, not being consciously aware of exactly what we are doing and then asking ourselves “why did I just do that?” The difference between goal setters and goal achievers are that they THINK and BEHAVE differently. How do they do this? They are 100% in tune with what's working for them, or not. They know the patterns that they are taking that lead them towards the results they are looking for, and when something is not leading them towards what they want, they switch the pattern. It's that simple. Here's how implement this week's brain fact Friday. STEP 1: Uncover What's Not Working: If you want to achieve new results with something you are working on, is all you need to do is ask yourself “What's not working with what I am doing” and this will help put you back on course to achieving your end result. It begins with being honest with what needs to change. STEP 2: Listen to What Your Feel Before You Act. To avoid taking actions that put you back into your habit loop, pay attention to how you feel. We've talked about interoception, or listening to what you feel in your body on many different episodes. Slow down and pay attention and you will know if the action is right for you, or not. STEP 3: Take a NEW Action: Different to what wasn't working and notice the results. If you are moving in the direction of what you want, you have re-patterned your brain to a new result. Life should feel easy, peaceful and like Adele mentioned, “everyone should feel happy” around you. If you are thinking of what you would like to change in 2022, I hope you can see how this re-patterning approach can help take you to new heights. As we are progressing on this podcast, and I look back at older episodes, like EPISODE #35 from January 2020 “Using Your Brain to Break Bad Habits”[ix] I can see where we are learning new ideas together that are essentially re-patterning our brains. 2 years ago, I was setting goals with the idea that “Neurons that Fire Together, Wire Together” and “Neurons that are out of Synch, Fail to Link” so I knew that old habits would eventually die out, (and fail to link) which they usually do. Habit breaking shouldn't be difficult, when you follow Adele Spraggon's 4 STEP Method from our last episode, but when something is difficult to break, it always goes back to the patterns that YOU'VE created in YOUR brain that you need to re-pattern. If you were able to create the habit, then you can also create a new habit that works better for you. Remember: The decisions we make daily to act on something, begins “automatically and without involvement of our consciousness” so we had better be sure that the actions we are taking daily are moving us towards those things that we want (our goals) not away from them.

Her book, Shift, 4 Steps to Personal Empowerment[iii] has won three awards for its powerful message of inspiration and hope and is sweeping the globe, transforming how people are setting and achieving their goals. For those new, or returning guests, welcome back! I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator from Toronto, Canada, now in Arizona, and like many of you listening, have been fascinated with learning and understanding the science behind high performance strategies that we can use to improve our productivity in our schools, our sports, and workplace environments. My vision is to bring the experts to you, share their books, resources, and ideas to help you to implement their proven strategies, whether you are a teacher working in the classroom or online, a student, or in the corporate environment. I want to welcome Adele Spraggon, from my hometown of Toronto, Canada today, and get straight to some questions that I hope will give us a new look at goal setting/achieving with our brain in mind, and be the perfect episode for us as we leap into 2022. Welcome Adele, thank you very much for joining me today and sharing your book and proprietary 4 STEP repatterning approach with our listeners at this very important time of year. Adele, we have a common thread that I learned when I began reading your book and studying your work. We both began our work in the personal development field and before I get to my first question for you, I noticed as we connected on LinkedIn that we have a couple of speakers and authors in common from my hometown. Just curious to see if we were in similar circles when I lived in Toronto, did you attend Gerry's Book Publishing seminar or any of Bob's events? I know we both noticed there was something wrong with the way that we were initially taught HOW to set and achieve goals. (think/feel/act (that I learned in the late 1990s)  vs FEEL/ACT/THINK) where we use what neuroscientists call interoception to FEEL before we act. This was missing from everything we were taught right from our first days in school, through college and into our careers. I noticed this distinction over the past couple of years of interviewing experts on the podcast, but when I heard you explain it, I understood it at a whole new level  and you created your proprietary 4 STEP re-patterning approach when you saw it, which I think is brilliant. INTRO Q: Can you share WHEN you first saw the need to teach others how to use their brain to achieve their goals or whatever it is we are working on and why it's important to notice that FEELING must precede our ACTIONS? Q1: I have done a lot of thinking (and episodes) on breaking habits and one of my earlier episodes #35 was on “How to Use Your Brain to Break Bad Habits”[iv] where we talk about the fact that “Neurons that fire together, wire together” when we are reinforcing a habit or something we are doing over and over again with this neural pathway. Then I discovered from Stefanie Faye on episode #133[v] that the brain creates high priority pathways with skills we are practicing over and over again, and how the brain re-wires itself using myelin that actually increases the speed and efficiency of these electrical impulses along the nerve cells with what we are practicing, which makes it easier for us to understand how habits are formed and reinformed in the brain. Then, I even heard on EPISODE #143 with Dr. Jon Lieff[vi], on his new book, The Secret Language of Cells, that anything we do AFTER exercise is further reinforced in the brain. With these three brain facts in mind, with how habits are formed and reinforced in the brain, can you explain WHY some of our habits are so difficult to BREAK, (while some we can break without any effort at all)? 1B) What needs to be in place FIRST in order to change behaviors that aren't working for us? Q2- In your book, you say that no patterns are wrong—they either work for the given situation you are in they don't. This question took me beyond where my thinking usually goes, because as we try new strategies to achieve new results, we will learn new habits.  What question can we ask ourselves to identify the habits quickly and easily that we need to shift? Q3- Adele, Can you take us through your 4 step re-patterning process to help us once we have identified what we want to change? How does the old pattern disappear? Is it just from no longer thinking about it? That pathway in the brain eventually just stops being reinforced and disappears? How long can we expect this to process to take? Q3B) How do we know if the NEW patterns we've created (in its place) will work for us? Q4: Is there anything important that I have missed that is important for us to think about at this time of year about habit breaking? Q5- What are the benefits of repatterning old habits? What will this process do for us? Q6-For people who want to learn more about the book, what's the best place for someone to find it? Adele, I want to thank you very much for sharing this powerful 4 STEP process to rewire our brain, especially at this time of year when many of us are looking back at the year at what didn't work and thinking of changes we make immediately for an improved 2022. For people to learn more about you, I will link all of your social media channels in the show notes, as well as http://www.shift4steps.com/ where you have a clear call to action to help people to get unstuck with this 4 step process?

Today we explore Joe Dispenza's wise words that say,“If you become aware of your automatic habits and you are conscious of your unconscious behaviours, so you cannot go unconscious again, then you are changing.” Our life is a reflection of what we believe! Today we explore the power of our conscious and subconscious mind understanding that sustainable change happens when we become conscious of what is unconscious. Our subconscious mind is very literal and only knows how to accept information. Our conscious mind is full of intellect and reasoning and has the ability to accept or reject information and gives us flexibility to make choice. The important thing to know however is that we spend approximately 95% of our time operating from our subconscious mind. Our subconscious really drives so much of our thoughts, feelings and actions. So becoming aware of this and healing patterns that no longer serve you is key. Reprogramming our mind to think what we want opposed to what we don't want is crucial. I use my weight lose journey to explain how this helped me and became a game changer for my life. And now I want to help other people do the same and live the life they want, opposed to the life they were programmed for. We create what we think about, so choosing to think about the things we want is necessary to create the life we desire. Neurons that fire together wire together! And what we dont consciously reject we will subconsciously accept. We need to protect our subconscious mind! I hope todays episode adds value to every ear that hears it. ~ Be present, be grateful, and be well.

Keep your home dim/dark. Keep to the minimum amount of light you need to see comfortably; explore using red lightThe more we deviate from intrinsic rhythm, the more we see increased rates of depression, anxiety, adverse mental health outcomesLight viewing and feeding behavior interact in ways that support one another: keep feeding times to most active points in circadian rhythm (i.e., during light)Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgIn this episode, I host Dr. Samer Hattar, Chief of the Section on Light and Circadian Rhythms at the National Institute of Mental Health. Dr. Hattar is a world-renowned expert on how viewing light at particular times adjusts our mood, ability to learn, stress and hormone levels, appetite, and mental health. We discuss how to determine and use your individual light sensitivity to determine the optimal sleep-wake cycle for you. We also discuss how to combine your light viewing and waking time with the timing of your food intake and exercise in order to maximize mental and physical functioning. Dr. Hattar is credited with co-discovering the neurons in the eye that set our circadian clocks and regulate mood and appetite. He explains why even a small shift in daylight savings leads to outsized effects on our biking because of the way that our cells and circadian clocks integrate across many days. And he offers precise tools to rapidly adjust to jetlag, shift work, and reset your clock after a late night of work or socializing.

Greetings, Summit Leaders. I love Summit Leaders! They are focused, dedicated, and disciplined for their life and career journey. Great leaders are continually growing in their knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, as well as sound judgment. They remember the battles they fought against fear, doubt, unbelief, and pride. They are intentionally alert to other enemies seeking to derail them on their life and career journey.   Two strong enemies are complacency and presumption. Everyone who has a leadership capacity is under continual attack by the enemy. Great leaders from long ago remind us to stay alert, for our enemy roams about like a lion seeking someone to devour. They overcame the enemy's tactics because they were steadfast in their faith. In starting our life and career journey, we tend to be on "high alert," giving our best, doing our best, and being our best. However, victory day by day can lull us into a sense of "I know the way." "I already know what to expect; therefore, I do not need as much preparation, insight, and wisdom." Thinking like this is deceiving—one of the tactics of our enemy.  The truth learned by every great leader is every day is a battle I have not experienced before and must meet with practiced disciplines, reflection, and discernment. They seek the truth about every circumstance. Someone once said, "You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."  Great leaders are thankful for their victories and often reflect on their progress, and the victories won. In the process, they develop competency, character, empathy, gratitude, humility, and thanksgiving.  "Nothing so conclusively proves a man's ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself."Thomas J. Watson  What did I learn during that battle fought and won years ago? How did I respond when the odds were against us? What was my thinking like then and now? How do I best prepare for what I will face today? What am I most grateful for in my life and career journey? Who am I, and what will I become? What impact am I having in the lives of others?    The answers cause new pathways of thinking to be developed. Neuroscience says we build a new neuro pathway that leads to transformative thinking when we repeat a thought process enough times."Neurons that fire together wire together." As a person thinks in their heart, so they are. Out of gratitude, we seek to help and serve others with kindness, love, gentleness, and not just to get ahead by ourselves. A clean heart, clear conscience, and confident mind are qualities in every great leader. The future of a leader who practices the disciplines for leadership growth is one of the more remarkable things yet to come! The outcome of a focused, dedicated, and disciplined life is an expanded capacity to serve and influence others. "Do you see a person skilled in his work? He will stand in the presence of kings. He will not stand in the presence of the unknown." Great leaders expect, anticipate, and prepare for their future and those they serve.  Thank you for being that type of leader! Victory!

Let's have a little controversy today.People are afraid of commitment. They're starting to say we should change the word - eliminate it all together. I'm fine with minimizing estimates. I'm super fine with re-negotiating scope based on changing priorities on the ground. But I'm not OK with allowing words like commitment, accountability, and promises to leave the lexicon.Agile is about change. Change - transformation - or improvement of any kind implies movement. We must move from where we are to today to where we want to be in the future in order to transform. Movement requires action. Neurons must fire. Muscles must activate. We must DO.And if we DO in the context of a team, we need to know what's happening next. Who will do what when? How do we interdepend and interact? This requires telling people what our actions will be - what will we DO and when will we do it? In its simplest form, these are commitments. And without them, we cannot blow away our customers. We cannot delight the people who depend on us.Agile itself is a promise. A commitment to do better than we used to. To create safety for each other not by softening words, but by making it ok to fail so we can learn effectively together.Without commitment, none of this will work.***JOIN THE FORGE***Sign up for more info about our online leadership immersion experience.https://badassagile.com/the-forge/******Follow on CLUBHOUSE:https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/badass-agileDon't forget to join us in the Badass Agile Listener Lounge on Facebook for member exclusives, livestreams and previews!https://www.facebook.com/groups/badasslistenerlounge/Follow The LinkedIn Page:https://www.linkedin.com/showcase/badass-agileWe're also on YouTube!

The Hot And Cold Past Of The Air Conditioner In the Northeast, the leaves have started changing colors, heralding the season of pumpkins, sweaters, and the smell of woodsmoke. But in some parts of the country, the heat hasn't let up. In cities like Dallas, Phoenix, and Miami, temperatures were up in the high 80s and low 90s this week—and with climate change, the U.S. is only getting hotter.  But humans have come up with an ingenious way to keep the heat at bay: air conditioning. Widely considered one of the greatest engineering achievements of the 20th century, the technology has transformed how and where people live—and it's prevented countless deaths. But it comes at a cost, and if we're going to keep up with a warming climate, we're going to need some other tricks to stay cool.  Like what you hear? Dive deeper with some of the sources we turned to while reporting.      See A Familiar Face? Thank These Brain Cells What happens when you see a familiar face? Light reflected from the face enters your eye, is focused onto the retina, and a signal travels up your optic nerve. But what exactly goes on in your brain after that is still somewhat mysterious.   Recently, researchers reported in the journal Science that they had identified a group of brain cells that seem tuned to respond only to familiar faces. The theory is that the specificity of those neurons helps to speed up processing of potentially important visual information. The work was done in monkeys, but the researchers are currently trying to identify similar brain structures in people.   Sofia Landi and Winrich Freiwald, two of the authors of the report, join Ira to talk about the research, and what it may tell us about how the brain and memory are organized.

Episode Summary:Brain machine interfaces untangle the complex web of neurons firing in our brains and relay the underlying meaning to a computer. These devices are being adapted to help patients regain motor control, monitor our mental well being, and may one day even make us more empathetic. State of the art methods to do this have massive trade-offs, either being high resolution yet requiring devices to be embedded in our heads or low resolution but non-invasive. Finding a key middle ground, Sumner uses advances in ultrasound to monitor the brain activity of monkeys performing specific tasks. With this data, he can not only record the brain activity associated with performing the task itself but also the intention of doing it before the subject even has a chance to move.Episode Notes:About the AuthorSumner started his career in mechanical and aerospace engineering, performing research on haptics and mechatronics.This developed a love for how humans and computers interact, leading him to earn a PhD developing exoskeleton robots for motor learning and control.Through this, he realized that to translate these technologies, we need better methods to get information out of the brain.Key TakeawaysUltrasound technologies are leveraged to monitor brain activity.The signal that is generated when these methods “listen” to the brain is extremely complex and entangled, akin to trying to make out a sentence from across a loud stadium.Sumner taught monkeys how to perform a task, reading the brain with ultrasound and using machine learning to decode the message.With it, they were able to read which way the monkey intended to move, when the movement would occur, which way the monkey actually moved, and whether it would move its hands or eyes.TranslationThis technology has massive potential to help those suffering from motor impairment and could one day connect us all on a deeper level.To get there, the device will need to be optimized to find the best way to maximize signal-to-noise but minimize invasiveness.Additionally, advances in miniaturization, wireless connections, lowered cost of goods, and finding the right balance between AI and BMI control are needed to get this extremely new technology into the hands of everyone.First Author: Sumner NormanPaper: Single-trial decoding of movement intentions using functional ultrasound neuroimaging

Dr. Mafee is dual board certified in Neurology and Integrative Medicine.  As such, she is passionate about using functional and integrative philosophies to prevent & reverse a host of chronic conditions.  Dr. Mafee is particularly focused on helping patients work through neurodegenerative disorders.   Dr. Mafee joined the Case Integrative Health team in March 2020. ​ Neurodegenerative disease is an umbrella term for a range of conditions which primarily affect the neurons in the human brain. Neurons are the building blocks of the nervous system which includes the brain and spinal cord. Neurons normally don't reproduce or replace themselves, so when they become damaged or die they cannot be replaced by the body. Examples of neurodegenerative diseases include Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Huntington's disease. Neurodegenerative diseases are incurable and debilitating conditions that result in progressive degeneration and / or death of nerve cells. This causes problems with movement (called ataxias), or mental functioning (called dementias). Dementias are responsible for the greatest burden of neurodegenerative diseases, with Alzheimer's representing approximately 60-70% of dementia cases. (Credits: JPND)

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 9-10-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of September 13, 2021.  This revised episode from December 2018 is part of a series this fall of episodes on water connections to the human body and human biology. MUSIC – ~ 15 sec – Lyrics:  “Well you're nothing but a pack of neurons, in a shapely bag of goo.  All your thoughts and dreams, your hopes and schemes, are electrochemical, too.”This week, that music sets the stage for describing some biochemical and electro-chemical aspects of the water-based environment inside of us.  Have a listen for about 45 more seconds. MUSIC – ~47 sec – Lyrics: “Well the first time I ever saw your face, dear, my ions began to diffuse.  Your eyes aglow made the sodium flow through those membrane avenues.  When our fingers unite, more than synapses excite, and those lips I can't refuse.  I know we're more than just a chemical reaction, ‘cause I'm in love with you-oo-oo, I'm in love with you.  Well you're nothing but a pack of neurons, controlling a bag of goo.  All your thoughts and dreams, your hopes and schemes, are electrochemical, too.  You are what you eat, ‘cept for what you excrete, so watch out what you chew.  You're nothing but a pack of neurons, and I'm in love with you-oo-oo, I'm in love with you.  This is the part where the sodium and potassium ions do a little soft-shoe.”You've been listening to part of “Pack of Neurons,” by Bob Gramann of Fredericksburg, Va., on his 2008 album, “Mostly Live.”  According to Mr. Gramann, the title “Pack of Neurons” was inspired by the use of that phrase in The Astonishing Hypothesis, a 1994 book by Francis Crick on human consciousness.   Dr. Crick shared the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with James Watson and Maurice Wilkins for their discoveries of the structure of the DNA molecule. Mr. Gramann's song is a light-hearted look at the fundamental role of neurons, of nerve cells, in transmitting the electrical impulses that control humans' mental and physical processes.  Those nerve impulses are transmitted along neurons by changes in the concentration of electrically-charged atoms of sodium and potassium. [Note, not in audio: Neurons are the type of nerve cell that transmits impulses.  The nervous system also has other supporting cells.]  Water is vital as the solvent for those charged atoms, known as ions.  And not just in neurons, but in all biological cells, a water-based solution is the medium in which biochemical substances exist and react.  Regarding water-based solutions, chemist Linus Pauling in 1970 wrote, “One of the most striking properties of water is its ability to dissolve many substances”—including, we might add, ions transmitting the nerve impulses that right now are allowing you to hear or read these words.Thanks to Bob Gramann for permission to use this week's music, and we close with about 20 more seconds of “Pack of Neurons.” MUSIC – ~21 sec - Instrumental SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT THE HUMAN NERVOUS SYSTEM The following information is quoted from National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute, “SEER Training Modules: Review: Introduction to the Nervous System,” online at https://training.seer.cancer.gov/anatomy/nervous/review.html, accessed 9/10/21. *The nervous system is the major controlling, regulatory, and communicating system in the body. It is the center of all mental activity including thought, learning, and memory. *The various activities of the nervous system can be grouped together as three general, overlapping functions: sensory, integrative, and motor. *Neurons are the nerve cells that transmit impulses.  Supporting cells are neuroglia. *The three components of a neuron are a cell body or soma, one or more afferent processes called dendrites, and a single efferent process called an axon. *The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord.  Cranial nerves, spinal nerves, and ganglia make up the peripheral nervous system. *The afferent division of the peripheral nervous system carries impulses to the CNS; the efferent division carries impulses away from the CNS. *There are three layers of meninges around the brain and spinal cord.  The outer layer is dura mater, the middle layer is arachnoid, and the innermost layer is pia mater. *The spinal cord functions as a conduction pathway and as a reflex center.  Sensory impulses travel to the brain on ascending tracts in the cord. Motor impulses travel on descending tracts. SOURCES Used for Audio Stewart W.

Picture this- you just gave a presentation on a topic you're proud of... the hours of preparation and practice that went into creating the presentation, the nerves you had to overcome to stand up and actually give the presentation, and the relief of having it done.  In some cases, maybe you felt that generally it well overall.  If you tend to be more self-critical, maybe you're focused on the one thing that didn't go well instead of the hundreds of things that did go well.  Let's take it a step further- let's say you are receiving feedback on the presentation.  You heard a lot of positive feedback, but that one negative piece stands out in your mind and you can't stop focusing on it. Why is it so easy to focus on the ONE negative thing you thought about yourself or the one negative thing that was said to you?  Why does that seem to overpower hundreds of positive inputs and why do we sometimes even believe the negative things someone said or that we thought even if they aren't true? It's called the negativity bias.  It's a built-in mechanism that is pre-programmed to focus on what didn't go well, focus on the thing that we lost, focus on negative headlines, and all the things going wrong instead of all the things going right. Some of us are wired to be more positive and happy than others.  According to research by Dr. Sonya Lyubomirksy, 50 percent of our happiness is determined by our genes, 40 percent by our activities, and 10 percent by our life circumstances. You may have heard the phrase, "neurons that wire together, fire together."  Neurons are brain cells that build circuits for just about everything we do.  Neuroplasticity refers to being able to mold those pathways.  And when it comes to thinking positive? Turns out you can rewire your brain to trend towards the positive and work towards overcoming the negativity bias.

Happy Monday! We're starting something new here called Monday Mindset Quick 1-3 min podcast design to help you in your practice and designed to help motivate you to be great! Maintaining a healthy mindset takes work but it is some of the most gratifying work we can do and it starts with a healthy morning routine. A healthy morning routine doesn't have to be exhausting. Like most things it's more important to get started that to be perfect and it will grow and evolve over time. It's like building muscle memory Neurons that fire wire together so it will get easier over time. What used to be a lot of work in the beginning will slowing become progressively easier. Start by doing just one thing! Jocko Willink says Disciple Equals Freedom. The freedom he is talking about is the freedom to make small adjustments throughout the day when the unexpected happens because we already have a frame work that we are working with. It's way easier to make one adjustment for something unexpected than it is to recreate a brand-new routine everyday   We'll have more Monday Mindsets to help you create a morning routine that works for you as well as other tips and practices to maintain a healthy mindset

This episode I describe the science of fat loss, including how fat is mobilized and oxidized (burned) and how to increase fat burning by leveraging the nervous system. Most people don't realize it, but our neurons connect to our fat and release epinephrine/adrenaline to facilitate fat oxidation. I explain how this can be accomplished with non-exercise movements such as fidgeting to burn thousands of calories of fat a day-- a practice is rarely discussed but very well supported by the science literature. I also discuss an optimal fat loss protocol using cold to create shiver, and how specific types and timing of exercise impact fat loss. I discuss if exercising fasted indeed increases fat oxidation-- it turns out the type and duration of exercise really matters. And I discuss the use of caffeine, GLP1 from Mate or guayusa and emerging new prescription compounds for fat loss. The episode includes a lot of tools, links to cost-free resources and explanation of the science underlying each tool for fat loss.   Thank you to our sponsors: InsideTracker - http://insidetracker.com/huberman ExpressVPN - http://expressvpn.com/huberman Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/huberman   Cold Protocols via The Cold Plunge: https://thecoldplunge.com/pages/protocols   Our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/andrewhuberman   Supplements from Thorne: http://www.thorne.com/u/huberman   Social: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/hubermanlab Twitter - https://twitter.com/hubermanlab Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/hubermanlab   Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introduction 00:06:00 Fat Loss: The Key Role of Neurons 00:08:44 The First Law of Fat Loss 00:11:00 Neurons Connect To Fat!

Neuroscientists have long been trying to determine what happens in the brain during sleep, but to date, they have overlooked a key player: astrocytes. These star-shaped cells were once thought to be the glue that held the brain together, but we are now beginning to appreciate their importance in a variety of brain functions. In this episode, host Lauren Richardson talks to Kira Poskanzer, Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Francisco, about her group's work showing that neurons are only one piece of the larger sleep puzzle. The conversation covers the complexity of sleep, how astrocytes control two key attributes of sleep (depth and duration), the technology and methods employed to uncover this novel mode of regulation, and how appreciating the role of astrocytes in governing sleep could lead to new insights into neuropsychiatric conditions and how to treat them.  The article at the center of today's episode is: “Cortical astrocytes independently regulate sleep depth and duration via separate GPCR pathways” by Trisha V Vaidyanathan, Max Collard, Sae Yokoyama, Michael E Reitman, and Kira E Poskanzer, published in eLife.

As the head of a digital scent technology company, the secrets of human smell sensors and olfactory receptor neurons have been very useful in developing new medical technology and marketing strategies. Since smell is a more rudimentary sensory input than something like sight, it remains extremely sensitive but much harder to process and describe.  Scientists have found genetic predispositions to smells and sensory experiences, leading new studies to search for what populations prefer different scents.
