In this episode, I discuss the science of setting, assessing, and pursuing goals. I explain the neural (brain) circuits that underlie goal setting and pursuit. Then I describe nine science-supported tools anyone can apply toward their goals. I explain when and how to use goal visualization, when to use multitasking and how to use specific rewards to improve the likelihood of reaching your goals. I also explain why envisioning failures and their consequences are effective and how to set goals of the appropriate level of challenge. I also explain how the molecule dopamine is used to gauge our progress toward milestones and long-term overarching goals and how to leverage dopamine for goal pursuit. Finally, I explain a unique tool called 'space-time bridging' that can be used to support all aspects of goal setting, assessment, and pursuit. This episode ought to be useful for anyone seeking to improve their performance in work, school, exercise, athletics, or personal development.   Thank you to our sponsors: LMNT - https://www.drinkLMNT.com/huberman  Athletic Greens - https://www.athleticgreens.com/huberman  ROKA - https://www.roka.com - code "huberman"   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  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Links: The 85% Rule for Optimal Learning - https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-12552-4   Effects of Narrowing Visual Attention on Goal Pursuit Behavior - https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/0146167219861438     Timestamps: 00:00:00 The Neuroscience of Goals 00:01:56 Tool 1: Learn Fast(er) by the 85% Rule  00:06:04 LMNT, Athletic Greens, ROKA 00:13:55 Brain Circuits for Setting & Pursuing Goals 00:21:52 Determining the Value of Goals  00:24:33 Psychology of Goal Setting: Assessing Value, Action Steps 00:30:29 Peripersonal Space vs. Extrapersonal Space 00:35:39 Visually Focusing on a Goal Line Improves Performance 00:43:50 How Vision Improves Performance: Blood Pressure 00:51:55 Tool 2: Use Focal Vision to Initiate Goal Pursuit 00:54:40 Tool 3: Use Aged Self-Images to Self-Motivate  00:59:33 Tool 4: Visualization of Goals is Only Helpful at the Start  01:02:05 Tool 5: Visualizing Failure is the Best Ongoing Motivator 01:07:26 Tool 6: Make Goals Moderately Lofty  01:13:05 Tool 7: Avoid Goal Distraction; Focus on 1-2 Major Goals Per Year 01:15:57 Tool 8: Ensure Specificity of Goals, Weekly Assessment 01:19:57 Dopamine, Motivation & Pleasure in Seeking Goals 01:22:43 Dopamine Reward Prediction Error, Controlling Dopamine 01:34:26 How Dopamine Influences Vision & Vice Versa 01:38:10 Interim Summary of Goal-Pursuit Steps 01:39:50 Tool 9: Space-Time Bridging  01:49:59 Summary 01:51:50 Subscribe, Sponsors, Patreon, Supplements: Thorne, Instagram, Twitter, Newsletter Please note that The Huberman Lab Podcast is distinct from Dr. Huberman's teaching and research roles at Stanford University School of Medicine.

This episode my guest is Dr. Jack Feldman, Distinguished Professor of Neurobiology at University of California, Los Angeles and a pioneering world expert in the science of respiration (breathing). We discuss how and why humans breathe the way we do, the function of the diaphragm and how it serves to increase oxygenation of the brain and body. We discuss how breathing influences mental state, fear, memory, reaction time, and more. And we discuss specific breathing protocols such as box-breathing, cyclic hyperventilation (similar to Wim Hof breathing), nasal versus mouth breathing, unilateral breathing, and how these each effect the brain and body. We discuss physiological sighs, peptides expressed by specific neurons controlling breathing, and magnesium compounds that can improve cognitive ability and how they work. This conversation serves as a sort of "Master Class" on the science of breathing and breathing related tools for health and performance.   Thank you to our sponsors: Thesis - https://takethesis.com/huberman  Athletic Greens - https://www.athleticgreens.com/huberman  Headspace - https://www.headspace.com/specialoffer    Our Breath Collective: http://www.ourbreathcollective.com/huberman    Dr. Jack Feldman Links: UCLA website - https://bioscience.ucla.edu/people/jack-feldman Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_L._Feldman Twitter - https://twitter.com/prebotzinger Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jacklfeldman    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  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introducing Dr. Jack Feldman 00:03:05 Sponsors: Thesis, Athletic Greens, Headspace, Our Breath Collective 00:10:35 Why We Breathe  00:14:35 Neural Control of Breathing: “Pre-Botzinger Complex” 00:16:20 Nose vs Mouth Breathing 00:18:18 Skeletal vs. Smooth Muscles: Diaphragm, Intracostals & Airway Muscles 00:20:11 Two Breathing Oscillators: Pre-Botzinger Complex & Parafacial Nucleus 00:26:20 How We Breathe Is Special (Compared to Non-Mammals) 00:33:40 Stomach & Chest Movements During Breathing 00:36:23 Physiological Sighs, Alveoli Re-Filling, Bombesin 00:49:39 If We Don't Sigh, Our Lung (& General) Health Suffers 01:00:42 Breathing, Brain States & Emotions  01:05:34 Meditating Mice, Eliminating Fear  01:11:00 Brain States, Amygdala, Locked-In Syndrome, Laughing 01:16:25 Facial Expressions 01:19:00 Locus Coeruleus & Alertness 01:29:40 Breath Holds, Apnea, Episodic Hypoxia, Hypercapnia 01:35:22 Stroke, Muscle Strength, TBI 01:38:08 Cyclic Hyperventilation 01:39:50 Hyperbaric Chambers 01:40:41 Nasal Breathing, Memory, Right vs. Left Nostril 01:44:50 Breathing Coordinates Everything: Reaction Time, Fear, etc. 01:57:13 Dr. Feldman's Breathwork Protocols, Post-Lunch  02:02:05 Deliberately Variable Breathwork: The Feldman Protocol 02:06:29 Magnesium Threonate & Cognition & Memory  02:18:27 Gratitude for Dr. Feldman's Highly Impactful Work 02:20:53 Zero-Cost Support, Sponsors, Patreon, Instagram, Twitter, Thorne Please note that The Huberman Lab Podcast is distinct from Dr. Huberman's teaching and research roles at Stanford University School of Medicine.

Our world is increasingly designed to addict us. What is happening in our brains when we are hooked and what can we do about it? In this episode, Dr. Anna Lembke and Dr. Diana Hill explore the neuroscience of addiction, and how we've become addicted to everything from sex, to food, to our smartphones. Anna and Diana also share their personal experiences with addiction and effective strategies to help you get your life and your brain back into balance.  About Dr. Anna LembkeAnna Lembke, MD is a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. A clinician scholar, she has published more than a hundred peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, and commentaries. She sits on the board of several state and national addiction-focused organizations, has testified before various committees in the United States House of Representatives and Senate, keeps an active speaking calendar, and maintains a thriving clinical practice. She is the author of Drug Dealer, MD – How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It's So Hard to Stop, recently appeared on the Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma, is her new book, Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence was an instant New York Times bestseller.

[45:46] - Dr. Lembke's Personal Recovery [49:01] - Pressing On the Pain Side with Hormesis [54:41] - Your Daily Practice [56:42] - Connect With The Podcast Key TakeawaysThere are common biological and psychosocial processes that underlie addictions Pain and pleasure are co-located in the brain. Pain and pleasure work on opposite sides of a balance. When we press on the pleasure side of the balance, our brain adapts by increasing the pain side of the equation. We feel awful, which then triggers us to seek out more pleasure. You can become addicted to any substance or behavior that releases dopamine. Most things in our modern world have been “drugified” to increase dopamine release. Two strategies to reset your dopamine brain balance are a 30-day detox and self-binding. Technology overuse at a young age can lead to kids missing out on important developmental tasks like moving their bodies, social skills, enjoying time in nature, and distress tolerance.

CAUTION: Contains themes of an adult nature.If I told you there was a simple, free habit you could take up to optimise your health in just five to 10 minutes a day, would you be up for trying it? If the answer's yes, then you're going to love today's guest, a brilliant science communicator who reveals what the habit is – and shares ground-breaking insights from his research. Dr. Andrew Huberman is a professor of neuroscience at Stanford University School of Medicine in the US and he has made numerous contributions to the fields of brain development, brain function and neuroplasticity. His lab's most recent work focuses on the influence of vision and breathing on human performance and brain states such as fear and courage. His work has been published in top scientific journals including Nature, Science, and Cell and has been featured in global media outlets such as TIME magazine, BBC, and Scientific American. We begin this conversation discussing why exposure to morning light is key to optimum human functioning. Our visual system is about more than just seeing. The light that enters our eyes, even in blind people, gives knowledge to the nervous system. Getting the right light, at the right time, sets the clock in all of your body's cells, which in turn will affect many different functions in the body. It stimulates the cortisol you need for energy and focus. And it has positive effects on everything from sleep, energy and immunity to appetite, mood and so much more. We also discuss what exactly is going on in the brain when we feel fearful and how something as simple as getting outside and looking at the horizon can completely change our physiology and powerfully inhibit anxiety. Finally, we talk about the role that technology is having on our attention and Andrew shares a variety of simple exercises that we can all do to train our brains to improve our focus, health and performance. Andrew is a special human being and someone who I have been wanting to speak to for a long, long time. I really enjoyed speaking to him - I hope you enjoy listening.Thanks to our sponsors: https://vivobarefoot.com/livemore https://calm.com/livemore http://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version and US & Canada version Show notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/227 Support the podcast: Members get ad-free episodes and exclusive content including my take on the topics most requested by the FBLM community https://drchatterjee.com/membershipDISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

In this episode, I review the science of habit formation and habit elimination and how the process of neuroplasticity (brain rewiring) underlies these processes. I describe two new systems for habit formation. The first system is grounded in the neuroscience of brain states and our ability to perform (and to avoid) certain tasks at different phases of the 24-hour day. The second system focuses on 21-day habit formation and consolidation. I also discuss "task bracketing" as an approach to enhancing habit formation and eliminating unwanted habits and the neural circuits that underlie task bracketing in the basal ganglia (a brain region for generating and stopping behaviors). I also review the science of dopamine rewards and how to apply that knowledge to shaping habits. The science and tools in this episode ought to be helpful for anyone looking to build better habits and eliminate unwanted habits for school, work, fitness, relationships, creative endeavors, and more—indeed for any person or situation where behavioral changes are needed.   Thank you to our sponsors: Athletic Greens - http://www.athleticgreens.com/huberman  InsideTracker - http://www.insidetracker.com/huberman  Helix Sleep - http://www.helixsleep.com/huberman    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  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Links: Excellent review on science of habits - https://www.annualreviews.org/doi/abs/10.1146/annurev-psych-122414-033417  Meta-analysis on habits - https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1539449219876877    Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introducing Habits; New Programs 00:02:30 Athletic Greens, InsideTracker, Helix Sleep 00:06:52 Habits versus Reflexes, Learning, Neuroplasticity 00:08:51 Goal-Based Habits vs. Identity-Based Habits 00:11:40 How Long It (Really) Takes to Form a Habit; Limbic-Friction 00:16:07 Linchpin Habits  00:18:55 Mapping Your Habits; Habit Strength, Context-Dependence 00:22:55 Automaticity 00:24:03 Tool 1: Applying Procedural Memory Visualizations 00:27:48 Hebbian Learning, NMDA receptors 00:31:00 Tool 2: Task Bracketing; Dorsolateral Striatum 00:37:08 States of Mind, Not Scheduling Time Predicts Habit Strength 00:38:16 Tool 3: Phase-Based Habit Plan: Phase 1 00:46:29 Tool 3: Phase-Based Habit Plan: Phase 2 00:55:24 Tool 3: Phase-Based Habit Plan: Phase 3 01:01:34 Habit Flexibility 01:04:57 Should We Reward Ourselves?

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning
Understanding Hormesis: Why Stress and Adversity Make Us Physically and Mentally Stronger”

Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning

Play Episode Listen Later Dec 30, 2021 20:39


I know we've all heard of the old saying “What doesn't kill you makes you stronger” but have you ever wondered if science could open our eyes to what exactly this means? I've wondered this, and it led me to this week's Brain Fact Friday where we will explore hormesis or the idea that “short, intermittent bursts of stressors can actually trigger a cascade of cellular processes that enhance overall health, slow aging, and make you more resilient to future stress (both physical and mental).”[i] On this episode you will learn: ✔︎ How our cells respond to short, intermittent periods of stress. ✔︎ A look into 2 pathways that are important for longevity (The Sirtuin and mTOR). ✔︎ 4 Ways to boost our health, using hormesis or stress, making us physically and mentally stronger. 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 who tune in, have been fascinated with learning, understanding, and applying the most current brain research to improve productivity in our schools, our sports, and workplace environments. The purpose of this podcast is to take the mystery out of this new discipline that backs our learning with simple neuroscience to make it applicable for us all to use right away, for immediate results. I had no idea while initially researching for this episode that neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Andrew Huberman, would be hosting Dr. David Sinclair[ii] (a Professor in the Department of Genetics from Harvard Medical School) on the Huberman Lab Podcast this week, and covering this very topic on “The Biology of Slowing and Reversing Aging”[iii] where the idea of hormesis was discussed throughout. I do recommend this episode for those who want to take a deeper dive into the science of anti-aging, longevity and the fascinating work that Dr. David Sinclair is doing in this field, in addition to Dr. Peter Attia's Podcast, The Drive, on “Dr. Sinclair, Ph.D. Slowing Aging, sirtuins, NAD, and the epigenetics of aging.”[iv] If you are listening to this, and thinking “What? She's lost me! What is she even talking about? Slowing down the ageing process? What is NAD and what are sirtuins?”  Just remember to keep an open mind--this podcast focuses on looking for the research from the most reputable place (Pubmed.gov), learn what the experts in the field have to say about what they are discovering, and then we break down the research in smaller pieces,  so that we can all make it applicable in our daily life, whether we've taken a neuroscience course, or not. What I've learned from studying closely with neuroscience researcher Mark Robert Waldman the past few years, is that we must be open to what the research says and keep our egos (and judgements) out of whatever it is we want to prove. I'm working hard on an abstract that supports the importance of educational neuroscience as a new discipline in our schools, versus the old model of learning, and although there is research that supports my hypothesis, it's still a new field, and I must remember what Dr. Sinclair tells his students, that “most things we thought were true are not…or will change over time.”[v] I'm now on my third revision of this abstract, because it's not easy to step away from what we want to believe, and leave it up in the air, because we might be wrong about everything, when it comes to looking at life through the lens of a scientist. Just keep an open mind, especially when you hear that Dr. Sinclair, now at the forefront of anti-aging research, after all the criticism he's received over the years, is in the late stages of clinical trials of working on something that mimics exercise in a pill to speed up metabolism. The next few years are going to really blow our minds with what is possible, and I hope that we can all embrace new ideas, with open minds and make the needed change with what we learn from the research, whether it's in the classroom like I'd like to see with new models of learning backed by neuroscience, or in the modern workplace. Moving into Season 7 of this podcast in the New Year, with a focus on Brain-Health and Well-Being, I won't always be looking for speakers and authors who are discovering what we already know. I'm looking for people like Dr. Sinclair, who will stretch us to think in ways we've never thought before, to do what we once thought was impossible, showing us that we have powerful reservoirs of mental and physical strength, that we can tap into when needed.  Now that fascinates me and is what will motivate me to keep learning more to share with you here. With that said, I wanted this week's Brain Fact Friday to tie into last week's episode to improve our mental and physical health, since according to a recent survey from the American Psychiatric Association, “almost 70 million adults resolve to find ways to improve their mental and physical health this coming year”[vi] and while looking for ideas, I saw a graphic I created last year that caught my attention. The graphic was about using “hormesis” as a stressor to make us stronger. I know how important hormesis is for our mental strength, by choosing to stretch ourselves beyond what we think we are capable of and had heard of strategies that use hormesis like exposing our body to extreme cold (with ice baths), or extreme heat (with saunas), with exercise, (and HIIT) and even intermittent fasting, but I didn't know what exactly this stress was doing for me on a cellular level. What does hormesis or this intermittent stress and adversity do to our cells that makes us physically and mentally stronger? This brings us to this week's Brain Fact Friday. DID YOU KNOW THAT: “We have 2 pathways that are important to longevity—the Sirtuin (the pathway we want to activate for health and longevity) and mTOR System (where too much activity causes disease in the body)[vii]  showing us the importance of understanding the key regulators of ageing and age-related diseases?[viii] This episode will focus on the Sirtuin Pathway, giving us hope that even when our cells become damaged, the Sirtuins help unwrap and put back together the unraveled, damaged DNA. To me, it's just like the neuroplastic brain that can also repair itself depending how we live our life, and is refreshing to know that we have tremendous control over our future physical, mental health and well-being, and our resilience to stress. There are ways that we can naturally boost the Sirtuin genes, opening them up, making them more active, giving us more energy, turning on all our bodies' natural defenses, and in essence, slowing down the aging process, bringing our attention inside our body, down to the cellular level, helping us to understand why certain hormetic behaviors are good for us, and others that do not involve this stressor, are not. Dr. David Sinclair, a leading expert in the field of anti-aging reminds us that “our bodies were designed to respond to adversity…and we've removed it from our lives because it feels good (or it's easier)—but we need adversity to be resilient and fight disease.”[ix] So, this year, as we are looking for NEW ways to boost our mental and physical health, I challenge you to start by thinking of the science behind hormesis, adversity and challenge and stretch our minds to try something new, something that challenges us, makes us uncomfortable (for short periods of time) yet has the potential to yield to outstanding health, and wellness benefits to take us to new heights in the New Year. Please do consult with your doctor before trying anything new and remember that “you can change your epigenome (our loops of DNA) by how we live our life more than anything our genes give us. 80% is epigenetic (our behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way our genes work).” (Dr. Sinclair) I want us to look deeper into why these strategies, that involve some sort of intermittent stress (hormesis) can make us physically and mentally stronger. Improving the Sirtuin/Longevity Pathway to Reduce Aging by: Strategy 1: Choosing Workouts That Challenge You If you have ever hired a personal trainer, it's not usually because you don't know what to do, it's usually the how part that we are missing, the need for someone to push us past where we usually would stop on our own so that we push ourselves enough that to damage our muscle fibers, preparing them to rebuild themselves stronger than they were before.  I did mention on episode #114 that “when we put our body under stress, like we do with exercise, that BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor--which is like fertilizer for the brain) upregulates, triggering the growth of cells to meet the increased mental demands of the movement.”[x]    When thinking about how to receive the benefits of exercise for improved cognition and well-being, be sure to pick workouts that challenge you, or push you beyond where you would usually stop on your own. “You can choose HIIT (high intensity interval training) where you go all out for 30 seconds to a minute, followed by 15 seconds of rest to experience hormesis. During these intense bursts, your muscles are briefly starved for oxygen, (hypoxia) which stimulates the production of mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell.)”[xi]  It's this brief period of stress that “improves the capacity of the cells to withstand greater stress.”[xii] Strategy 2: Using Saunas, Cryotherapy or Ice Baths For someone who finds anything below 80 degrees freezing, I've not yet tried extreme cold, with ice baths or cryotherapy[xiii] for pain relief, muscle healing, and improving the sirtuin pathway to reduce aging, but many people I know swear by this practice. Until I'm brave enough to try this, I'll stick to ice-packs, but wonder if you have tried this strategy to speed up healing?  I'll say that sitting in a sauna is a lot like Arizona summers, and not difficult when you do this often enough to get used to those higher temperatures. The only challenge with this one, is that most of us don't have a sauna in our home. I remember a friend of mine from Toronto, from Finland, swore by a sauna in his home, and I thought of him when I first heard of using heat stress to “trigger a thermoregulatory response”[xiv] if used regularly. Since I want to make use of the research I discover, I did investigate how expensive it would be to put a small sauna in your home, and Costco[xv] does carry them for a reasonable price. Might be something for next year's Christmas wish list, or worth saving up for. Strategy 3: The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting Pioneer in anti-aging, Dr. Sinclair noticed that “our clock is ticking faster by always being fed…and it's not important WHAT we eat, but WHEN we eat during the day.”[xvi] I've been practicing this strategy since discovering Jason Whittrock from EPISODE #94[xvii] in 2016 but didn't understand the science behind fasting back then. Remember that Dr. Sinclair reminded us that “our bodies are designed to respond to adversity” and “when we are hungry, we turn on these adversity, hormetic genes that are called longevity genes—and they make the body fight against aging and diseases,”[xviii] even increasing your mental focus. The problem in America is that most of us don't allow ourselves to get to the point of hunger where all the benefits are. There are fast food restaurants on every corner to prevent us from starving to death, but I think, this strategy is freeing, giving you so much more extra time and energy that you will never want to give up again once you become free from “needing” to eat. If you want to start this practice, and don't know where to begin, just skip one meal a day with either breakfast or dinner. No one ever said we “need to eat 3 meals a day” so you'll notice some paradigms shifting as you try this. I noticed a marked difference with my health after incorporating this strategy, but it took some time to get used to it. The key is to get past the first 2-3 weeks or so when you think “I need to eat something” and learn to get past the hunger feeling. It does go away. Everyone is different, and so I'll let you know what works best for me, but that might not work for you. You have to play around these strategies and discover for yourself what will work best for your situation. I started with fasting Sunday through Wednesday with a 16-hour non-eating window from 5:30pm-9:30am and 8-hour eating window from 9:30am-5:30pm back in 2016. I only drank water, tea or coffee in the non-eating window, and ate fairly clean in the 8 hour eating window, and chose only 4 days a week to do this, so that my body wouldn't get used to it and adapt.  With time, I began to trust that my body had stores of energy that it would use up, until it was fed or fueled again. It just became my way of life, and who knew it was a longevity strategy! I had no idea.   I usually exercise early morning with an empty stomach and have never once felt lightheaded or shaky with strenuous exercise on an empty stomach. Just monitor how you feel and adjust this strategy to work for you and your schedule, knowing that over time, your body gets used to whatever you are doing, so you'll need to continue to switch it up. Strategy 4: Taking Dietary Supplements (Resveratrol, NMN and Berberine) with Food Every year I look for what I can add to my health regime to strengthen it and I look for what others are doing in the health and wellness industry. If you've been following this podcast for awhile, you will know that I've been a longtime fan of Dave Asprey and his bulletproof coffee, so after listening to Dr. Huberman's podcast[xix], I decided I would try all 3 supplements they discussed (Resveratrol, NMN and Berberine) since both Dr. Huberman and Dr. Sinclair talked about the benefits of each one on health and longevity.  This strategy I've not tried yet, but I put the link in the resource section for these 3 supplements on AMAZON and suggest that you do some research yourself before buying anything. Aha Moment and Paradigm Shift With This Strategy: Dr. Sinclair mentioned that in the fine print of his study with mice that he gave Resveratrol to, that when they gave this supplement to the mice every day, that the only thing that happened was that the mice were protected against a fatty Western diet. They had no noticeable lifespan extension. But for the mice they gave Resveratrol every OTHER day, they lived over 3 years (which is a long time for lab mice), showing him that there are benefits to NOT taking the same thing every day.  This blew my mind, as I'm a creature of habit, and take the same thing every day. With this research in mind, I'm going to create a new plan of what supplements to take and when. Just like exercise, supplement use needs to be alternated so my body doesn't get used to what I'm taking. Just a bit more about the 3 supplements Dr. Sinclair has studied and noted to be anti-aging that I want to try this year: Resveratrol:  Dr. Sinclair suggests taking 1,000 mg a day that this “must come from a supplement and not from drinking wine, or you would have to drink 200 glasses/day to get the right amount.”  I'm sure we have all heard of the health benefits of resveratrol, that it (may lower blood pressure, has a positive effect on blood fats, lengthens the lifespan of certain animals, protects the brain, may suppress cancer cells)[xx] so I'm going to try it to see what I notice. NMN: 1000 mg/day Nicotinamide Mononucleotide to protect against heart disease, lower risk of obesity, enhance and maintains DNA repair, and slow down the rate of aging[xxi]  by enhancing NAD levels in the body, an important coenzyme found in all living cells that plays a role in promoting health and prolonging lifespan “but these levels decline as we get older, or obese.”[xxii]  Dr. Huberman and Dr. Sinclair suggested taking 1,000 mg of NMN to fuel the NAD molecule that also fuels Resveratrol to work in the body. It seems this one works best with Resveratrol since it increases those important NAD levels in the body that we need to live, and since numerous studies have demonstrated that “boosting NAD+ levels increases insulin sensitivity, reverses mitochondrial dysfunction, and extends lifespan”[xxiii] I'm definitely going to add this supplement to my health care regime in the New Year. Berberine: Dr. Sinclair called this the “poor man's Metformin” Metformin is a drug given to people with diabetes. I used to take metformin for another purpose and had no idea this drug had additional benefits of protecting against heart disease, cancer, frailty and dementia. If you are taking it, then just know there are these additional benefits, and if you don't have access to it, there's always Berberine, a powerful supplement with many benefits at the molecular level like “it's been shown to lower blood sugar, cause weight loss and improve heart health.”[xxiv] Longevity expert, Dr. Sinclair takes these 3 supplements daily, with a bit of olive oil and vinegar, with a basil leaf, and says it tastes like he's drinking a bit of salad dressing, which sounds wonderful, but I'll let you know when I try it out! To review this week's Brain Fact Friday: DID YOU KNOW THAT: “We have 2 pathways that are important to longevity—the Sirtuin (the pathway we want to activate for health and longevity) and mTOR System (where too much activity causes disease in the body) that are key regulators of ageing and age-related diseases[xxv] and we can do things that positively impact the Sirtuin genes, by choosing challenge boosting hormetic activities, opening these Sirtuin genes up, making them more active, giving us more energy, turning on all our bodies' natural defenses, and impacting the rate of aging. Whatever strategy we choose (workouts that challenge us, heat/cold exposure, intermittent fasting, or supplements that target anti-aging, my hope is that we now have a different picture of why we are using hormesis to build a better, stronger, more resilient version of ourselves that embraces adversity head on, and full force. Just like when we have peered inside our neuroplatic brain and learned something new on other episodes, we have now looked deep into the longevity of our cells, and understand why hormesis doesn't kill them, but only makes them stronger! Have a safe, happy and healthy New Year and I'll see you next year for the start of Season 7!

In this episode, I am joined by Dr. David Sinclair, tenured Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and an expert researcher in the field of longevity. Dr. Sinclair is also the author of the book Lifespan: Why We Age & Why We Don't Have To, and the host of the Lifespan Podcast, which launches January 5, 2022.  In this interview, we discuss the cellular and molecular mechanisms of aging and what we all can do to slow or reverse the aging process. We discuss fasting and supplementation with resveratrol, NAD, metformin, and NMN. We also discuss the use of caffeine, exercise, cold exposure, and why excessive iron load is bad for us. We discuss food choices for offsetting aging and promoting autophagy (clearance of dead cells).

Huberman Lab Podcast Notes Key Takeaways We have specific brain circuitry for bonding that are repurposed for the types of relationship whether it's mother-child, friendship, romantic partnership, etc.The strength and stability of our adult bonds are rooted in the health of our caregiver-child bond (but this bond is neuroplastic and can change with experience)Dopamine causes us to maintain social homeostasis and seek out connection (via phone, hang out, etc.) if we are not at our optimal levelIntroverts release more dopamine in social interactions so need less of them, while extroverts release less dopamine in social interactions and need more of them to feel filled upThink about people based on how much interaction they need to feel balanced, not how chatty or quiet they areHomeostatic drives aren't siloed: there's common biology of circuitry that underlies things that maintain us (e.g., hunger, connection, social interaction, water, etc.)Themes and traditions anchor our psychology and allow us to synchronize our physiology and act as a bridge to establish social bondsThe right brain handles more autonomic forms of bonding (e.g., heart rate, pupil size) versus the left brain which is responsible for more conscious forms of bonding (e.g., reading to your child)Oxytocin is the “hormonal glue”, involved in everything from childbirth, orgasm, honesty, social recognition, and key to all things that lead to bondingPart of why breakups (whether in friendship or romantically) are so painful is because they involve a dissolution of emotional and cognitive empathy that was built upRead the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgThis episode I discuss the science of social bonding- the process by which we form attachments. I explain the neural and hormonal basis for "social homeostasis" (our drive for a given amount of socializing) which reveals why we get lonely, why we seek out connection with others and how power dynamics (hierarchies) shape those connections. I also discuss the neurochemical basis of introversion and extroversion, of trust and how shared experiences that promote similar physiological states in two or more individuals, leads to more rapid bonding. I also discuss how food and oxytocin play key roles in social bonding.

Huberman Lab Podcast Notes Check out the Huberman Lab episode page The brain and its functions are the results of genetics and experienceSensory neurons are taking information from the outside world and filter through systems of the body to make meaningLocation of sensory input (e.g., eyes, feet, fingertips, etc.) doesn't matter – it all becomes electrical signals flowing inAll the different parts of the brain are working through the world to make sense of our environment and keep us aliveThe paradox of the brain: areas of the brain are multi-functioning and interactive – but also highly specialized in arrangement and processingOur circadian system provides an internal sense of the earth's rotation by processing light – it affects everything from sleep and hormones to appetite and moodThe general rule of light viewing: get as much light as you can anytime you want to be alert, avoid light when you want to sleepMotion sickness is a mismatch between retina and brain – our eyes might be looking down at our phone or a book, but our brain knows we're moving forward in ways outside of our controlRead the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgIn this episode, my guest is Dr. David Berson, Professor & Chairman of Neuroscience at Brown University. Dr. Berson discovered the neurons in your eye that set your biological rhythms for sleep, wakefulness, mood and appetite. He is also a world-renowned teacher of basic and advanced neuroscience, having taught thousands of university lectures on this topic. Many of his students have become world-leading neuroscientists and teachers themselves.  Here Dr. Berson takes us on a structured journey into and around the nervous system, explaining: how we perceive the world and our internal landscape, how we balance, see, and remember. Also, how we learn and perform reflexive and deliberate actions, how we visualize and imagine in our mind, and how the various circuits of the brain coordinate all these incredible feats.  We discuss practical and real-life examples of neural circuit function across the lifespan. Dr. Berson gives us a masterclass in the nervous system—one that, in just less than two hours, will teach you an entire course's worth about the brain and how yours works.   Thank you to our sponsors: Athletic Greens - https://athleticgreens.com/huberman  InsideTracker - https://insidetracker.com/huberman  Magic Spoon - https://magicspoon.com/huberman    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  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Links: InsideTracker Interview - https://blog.insidetracker.com/longevity-by-design-andrew-huberman  Dr. Berson's Webpage -  https://vivo.brown.edu/display/dberson  Eyewire - (Contribute to Neuroscience Research from Home/Computer - https://eyewire.org/explore   Best Neuroscience Textbook (NOTE this is a TEXTBOOK) - https://amzn.to/3lZWrL4  Book - We Know It When We See It by Richard Masland - https://amzn.to/31S60Vp    Timestamps: 00:00:00 Dr. David Berson  00:02:55 Sponsors: Athletic Greens, InsideTracker, Magic Spoon  00:08:02 How We See  00:10:02 Color Vision  00:13:47 “Strange” Vision 00:16:56 How You Orient In Time 00:25:45 Body Rhythms, Pineal function, Light & Melatonin, Blueblockers 00:34:45 Spending Times Outdoors Improves Eyesight  00:36:20 Sensation, Mood, & Self-Image 00:41:03 Sense of Balance 00:50:43 Why Pigeons Bob Their Heads, Motion Sickness  01:00:03 Popping Ears 01:02:35 Midbrain & Blindsight  01:10:44 Why Tilted Motion Feels Good  01:13:24 Reflexes vs. Deliberate Actions 01:16:35 Basal Ganglia & the “2 Marshmallow Test” 01:24:40 Suppressing Reflexes: Cortex  01:33:33 Neuroplasticity  01:36:27 What is a Connectome? 01:45:20 How to Learn (More About the Brain) 01:49:04 Book Suggestion, my Berson Appreciation 01:50:20 Zero-Cost ways to Support the HLP, Guest Suggestions, Sponsors, Patreon, Thorne   Please note that The Huberman Lab Podcast is distinct from Dr. Huberman's teaching and research roles at Stanford University School of Medicine.

Huberman Lab Podcast Notes Key Takeaways We cannot have fear without having most or all the elements of a stress response – but we can have stress without fearWe can inherit a predisposition to fear and trauma from our parents, with a stronger association shown from fatherAmygdala is a critical component of threat reflex, which involves activation of some systems and suppression of the parasympathetic systemChanging the narrative is one of the most potent ways we can rewire fear circuitryDetailed recounting or retelling or fearful or traumatic event is key to unpairing threat reflex and changing the narrative, which will diminish stress response over timeEye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) has been shown beneficial for acute, single event experiences (e.g., car accident) by reducing activation of amygdala and amplitude of threat reflex – but might be incomplete treatment because it doesn't change the narrative of the eventSocial connection is beneficial for relief of fear and trauma by diminishing tachykininTaking a self-directed approach and inducing stress through breathing can mitigate stress – best results if incorporated with narrative therapyBreathing approaches to mitigate stress: (1) Try 5 minutes of physiologic sigh (double inhale through the nose followed by long exhale through mouth); (2) Try 5 minutes of cyclic hyperventilation (deep inhale through nose immediately following by deep exhale through mouth x 25-30 then fully exhaling until lungs are empty and repeating)Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgIn this episode, I discuss fear and trauma, including the neural circuits involved in the "threat reflex" and how specific experiences and memories come to activate that system. I also discuss how our body is involved in trauma and fear. First, I describe the logic of fear mechanisms and how "top-down" processing-- meaning connections from the parts of the brain that assign meaning to our feelings, are involved in fear and erasing fears and traumas. Then I discuss what successful fear and trauma treatment must include and consider various treatments for whether they meet that standard, such as EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Ketamine, other drug-assisted therapies, and more. I also review new data on how 5 minutes per day of deliberate, self-imposed stress can erase fear and depression. And I review the role that social connection plays in erasing or maintaining fears by activating specific molecular pathways in the brain and body. Finally, I review supplementation with over-the-counter compounds for their effects on anxiety and fear and when to take them, if at all.   Thank you to our sponsors: Athletic Greens - https://www.athleticgreens.com/huberman  InsideTracker - https://www.insidetracker.com/huberman  Helix Sleep - https://www.helixsleep.com/huberman    Our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/andrewhuberman    Supplements from Thorne: https://www.thorne.com/u/huberman    Social: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/hubermanlab  Twitter - https://twitter.com/hubermanlab  Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/hubermanlab  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introducing Fear, Trauma & Trauma  00:02:15 Athletic Greens, InsideTracker, Helix Sleep 00:06:49 What is Fear?  00:11:45 Autonomic Arousal: “Alertness” vs. “Calmness” 00:13:44 Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis (HPA axis) 00:17:36 “The Threat Reflex”: Neural Circuits for Fear 00:28:24 Controlling Fear: Top-Down Processing 00:32:27 Narratives: “Protective or Dangerous” 00:35:58 Attaching Fear to Events: Classical Conditioning & Memory 00:41:45 How Fear Learning Occurs: Long Term Potentiation, NMDA 00:46:10 Extinguishing (Reducing) Fears 00:50:25 Cognitive (Narrative) Therapies for Fear 00:57:56 Repetition of Narrative, Overwriting Bad Experiences with Good 01:05:28 EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing 01:14:00 Social Connection & Isolation Are Chemically Powerful 01:18:23 Trans-Generational Trauma 01:25:00 PTSD Treatments: Ketamine, MDMA, oxytocin 01:39:25 How Do You Know If You Are Traumatized?  01:46:16 Deliberate Brief Stress Can Erase Fears & Trauma 01:49:50 Erasing Fears & Traumas In 5 Minutes Per Day 01:59:42 Nutrition, Sleep, & Other General Support Erasing Fear & Trauma 02:02:30 Supplements for Anxiety, Fear: Saffron, Inositol, Kava 02:10:00 Synthesis  02:11:46 Zero-Cost Support, Sponsors, Patreon, Supplements, Instagram, Twitter   Please note that The Huberman Lab Podcast is distinct from Dr. Huberman's teaching and research roles at Stanford University School of Medicine.

We live, for as long as we do, in a state of duality. That duality often confuses us and distorts the reality of our energy. The duality is our soul and our ego. The soul is holding the space for our journey- all of it. The ego is the consciousness that runs the physical body. One aspect leads with unconditional-ness and love. The other is largely run by fear. When that larger part of us- higher self, soul, spirit, is where we put our focus and energy, we set our course for intentional living. What does that mean? What does that look like? Can we resolve this duality? The simple answer is YES! It starts with how we CHOOSE to focus our energy. I am very excited to welcome to the show, Dr Greg Hammer, MD.

In this episode, my guest is Dr. David Berson, Professor & Chairman of Neuroscience at Brown University. Dr. Berson discovered the neurons in your eye that set your biological rhythms for sleep, wakefulness, mood and appetite. He is also a world-renowned teacher of basic and advanced neuroscience, having taught thousands of university lectures on this topic. Many of his students have become world-leading neuroscientists and teachers themselves.  Here Dr. Berson takes us on a structured journey into and around the nervous system, explaining: how we perceive the world and our internal landscape, how we balance, see, and remember. Also, how we learn and perform reflexive and deliberate actions, how we visualize and imagine in our mind, and how the various circuits of the brain coordinate all these incredible feats.  We discuss practical and real-life examples of neural circuit function across the lifespan. Dr. Berson gives us a masterclass in the nervous system—one that, in just less than two hours, will teach you an entire course's worth about the brain and how yours works.   Thank you to our sponsors: Athletic Greens - https://athleticgreens.com/huberman  InsideTracker - https://insidetracker.com/huberman  Magic Spoon - https://magicspoon.com/huberman    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  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Links: InsideTracker Interview - https://blog.insidetracker.com/longevity-by-design-andrew-huberman  Dr. Berson's Webpage -  https://vivo.brown.edu/display/dberson  Eyewire - (Contribute to Neuroscience Research from Home/Computer - https://eyewire.org/explore   Best Neuroscience Textbook (NOTE this is a TEXTBOOK) - https://amzn.to/3lZWrL4  Book - We Know It When We See It by Richard Masland - https://amzn.to/31S60Vp    Timestamps: 00:00:00 Dr. David Berson  00:02:55 Sponsors: Athletic Greens, InsideTracker, Magic Spoon  00:08:02 How We See  00:10:02 Color Vision  00:13:47 “Strange” Vision 00:16:56 How You Orient In Time 00:25:45 Body Rhythms, Pineal function, Light & Melatonin, Blueblockers 00:34:45 Spending Times Outdoors Improves Eyesight  00:36:20 Sensation, Mood, & Self-Image 00:41:03 Sense of Balance 00:50:43 Why Pigeons Bob Their Heads, Motion Sickness  01:00:03 Popping Ears 01:02:35 Midbrain & Blindsight  01:10:44 Why Tilted Motion Feels Good  01:13:24 Reflexes vs. Deliberate Actions 01:16:35 Basal Ganglia & the “2 Marshmallow Test” 01:24:40 Suppressing Reflexes: Cortex  01:33:33 Neuroplasticity  01:36:27 What is a Connectome? 01:45:20 How to Learn (More About the Brain) 01:49:04 Book Suggestion, my Berson Appreciation 01:50:20 Zero-Cost ways to Support the HLP, Guest Suggestions, Sponsors, Patreon, Thorne   Please note that The Huberman Lab Podcast is distinct from Dr. Huberman's teaching and research roles at Stanford University School of Medicine.

In this episode, I discuss fear and trauma, including the neural circuits involved in the "threat reflex" and how specific experiences and memories come to activate that system. I also discuss how our body is involved in trauma and fear. First, I describe the logic of fear mechanisms and how "top-down" processing-- meaning connections from the parts of the brain that assign meaning to our feelings, are involved in fear and erasing fears and traumas. Then I discuss what successful fear and trauma treatment must include and consider various treatments for whether they meet that standard, such as EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Ketamine, other drug-assisted therapies, and more. I also review new data on how 5 minutes per day of deliberate, self-imposed stress can erase fear and depression. And I review the role that social connection plays in erasing or maintaining fears by activating specific molecular pathways in the brain and body. Finally, I review supplementation with over-the-counter compounds for their effects on anxiety and fear and when to take them, if at all.   Thank you to our sponsors: Athletic Greens - https://www.athleticgreens.com/huberman  InsideTracker - https://www.insidetracker.com/huberman  Helix Sleep - https://www.helixsleep.com/huberman    Our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/andrewhuberman    Supplements from Thorne: https://www.thorne.com/u/huberman    Social: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/hubermanlab  Twitter - https://twitter.com/hubermanlab  Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/hubermanlab  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introducing Fear, Trauma & Trauma  00:02:15 Athletic Greens, InsideTracker, Helix Sleep 00:06:49 What is Fear?  00:11:45 Autonomic Arousal: “Alertness” vs. “Calmness” 00:13:44 Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis (HPA axis) 00:17:36 “The Threat Reflex”: Neural Circuits for Fear 00:28:24 Controlling Fear: Top-Down Processing 00:32:27 Narratives: “Protective or Dangerous” 00:35:58 Attaching Fear to Events: Classical Conditioning & Memory 00:41:45 How Fear Learning Occurs: Long Term Potentiation, NMDA 00:46:10 Extinguishing (Reducing) Fears 00:50:25 Cognitive (Narrative) Therapies for Fear 00:57:56 Repetition of Narrative, Overwriting Bad Experiences with Good 01:05:28 EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing 01:14:00 Social Connection & Isolation Are Chemically Powerful 01:18:23 Trans-Generational Trauma 01:25:00 PTSD Treatments: Ketamine, MDMA, oxytocin 01:39:25 How Do You Know If You Are Traumatized?  01:46:16 Deliberate Brief Stress Can Erase Fears & Trauma 01:49:50 Erasing Fears & Traumas In 5 Minutes Per Day 01:59:42 Nutrition, Sleep, & Other General Support Erasing Fear & Trauma 02:02:30 Supplements for Anxiety, Fear: Saffron, Inositol, Kava 02:10:00 Synthesis  02:11:46 Zero-Cost Support, Sponsors, Patreon, Supplements, Instagram, Twitter   Please note that The Huberman Lab Podcast is distinct from Dr. Huberman's teaching and research roles at Stanford University School of Medicine.

CAUTION: Includes themes of an adult nature.Do you think you have an addiction, or perhaps an unhealthy relationship with a certain behaviour? It may be a behaviour that you have tried to stop in the past that you keep returning back to despite your best intentions. Well, if you do (and I cannot imagine there are many people out there who don't), I think you will find today's conversation eye-opening. My guest is Dr. Anna Lembke, a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine, and author of the brilliant new book, Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance In the Age Of Indulgence, in which she explores the exciting new scientific discoveries that explain why our relentless pursuit of pleasure leads to pain.In today's conversation, we explore the fact that we are living in a dopamine overloaded world where everything has been made more accessible, more abundant, and more potent. We're living in a time of unprecedented access to high-reward, high-dopamine stimuli: drugs, food, news, gambling, shopping, gaming, texting, sexting, Facebooking, Instagramming, YouTubing, tweeting...the list is endless. And the effect is that we are now living in a world that has turned many of us into addicts.We delve into what exactly dopamine is, why we all need it, and how getting too much of it can actually lead to pain. Anna explains that pleasure and pain work like a balance in the brain. In fact, the same parts of the brain that process pleasure, also process pain. If we tip that balance too far in the pursuit of pleasure, the brain responds by overcompensating and pushing us in the direction of pain.But it's not all doom and gloom, there is plenty that we can do to find the right balance and in our conversation, Anna shares some of her best practical advice that has been honed over years and years of treating patients.We cover a wide range of topics, including why radical honesty is important for all of us, the lessons that we can learn from people who have been through recovery and the effect that isolation has on addiction. We also discuss how this problem of overconsumption can affect our kids at crucial stages in their development, and what we can do to protect them.Anna is a world-leading expert in her field but what I love the most about her is her authenticity, compassionate manner and her passion to help as many people as she can. This was a really powerful conversation. I hope you enjoy listening.

In this episode, my guest is Dr. David Buss, Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas, Austin, and one of the founding members of the field of evolutionary psychology. Dr. Buss describes his work on how people select mates for short and long-term relationships, the dynamics of human courtship, and mate value assessment — meaning how people measure up as potential partners. We also discuss the causes of infidelity and differences for infidelity in men and women. He explains how people evaluate and try to alter other people's mate value as a means to secure and even poach mates. We discuss monogamous and non-monogamous relationships in humans. And we discuss what Dr. Buss calls “the dark triad”— features common in stalkers and narcissists that relate to sexual and psychological violence in relationships.

Huberman Lab Podcast Notes Check out the Huberman Lab episode page The brain responds similarly to joy and gratitudeGratitude is not about “fake it till you make it” – giving and receiving thanks and gratitude must be genuine to get the benefitsMost gratitude practices of writing or thinking about things you are grateful for will not actually lead to any positive benefits or changes in brain circuitryTrue gratitude practice is really about associating or experiencing empathy or sympathy for someone who received help – whether it's help you gave or help you heard about given to someone you connect withA regular (and correct) gratitude practice can shift connectivity of emotions to reduce anxiety and fear pathways, increase motivation and pursuit pathways, and decrease inflammatory cytokines – amongst other physiological benefits  Unlike other practices (such as mediation or breathwork), the positive effects of gratitude practice are felt almost instantly (60-90 seconds) making it sustainable to incorporate regularlySteps for a scientifically grounded gratitude practice: (1) Think about (or find from podcast, movie, etc.) a story in which someone received help or you received thanks; (2) Write a few notes about the story such as what the struggle was, what the help was, and how it made you feel; (3) Repeatedly reflect on the story, really connecting with it for a few minutes   Components of ideal gratitude practice: you must genuinely and emotionally associate with the story, reflect on the story 1-5 minutes, practice 3x per weekRead the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgIn this episode, I discuss the science of gratitude, which has been shown in peer-reviewed studies to have tremendous positive effects on mental and physical health. I explain, however, that most commonly used gratitude practices are ineffective (such as gratitude lists). The key elements of highly effective gratitude practices are described, including the essential need for story (narrative), receiving or perceiving gratitude rather than giving it, and the role that theory of mind plays in this context. I also discuss why we can't simply make up feelings of gratitude and how reluctance undermines the process. I also explain the neural circuit mechanisms that underlie the reductions in fear and increases in motivation and lowering of inflammatory chemicals that effective narrative-based gratitude can trigger. Throughout the episode, I use the science of gratitude to design a brief but highly effective protocol.    Thank you to our sponsors: ROKA - https://www.roka.com - code "huberman" InsideTracker - https://www.insidetracker.com/huberman  Magic Spoon - https://www.magicspoon.com/huberman    Our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/andrewhuberman    Supplements from Thorne: https://www.thorne.com/u/huberman    Social: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/hubermanlab  Twitter - https://twitter.com/hubermanlab  Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/hubermanlab  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Links: Neural Correlates of Gratitude (Damasio) - https://bit.ly/3oS8TNr  Reducing Inflammatory Cytokines & Fear With Gratitude - https://bit.ly/3oPsSwv     Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introduction: Gratitude Science & Surprises 00:01:50 Controlling Heart Rate with Story 00:04:33 Sponsors: ROKA, InsideTracker, Magic Spoon 00:09:11 Major, Long-Lasting Benefits of Gratitude Practice 00:12:20 Prosocial vs. Defensive Thinking, Behaviors, & Neural Circuits  00:17:50 Why We All Need an Effective Gratitude Practice 00:21:22 Neurochemistry & Neural Circuits of Gratitude 00:25:10 Prefrontal Cortex Set Context 00:30:10 Ineffective Gratitude Practices; Autonomic Variables 00:34:55 Key Features of Effective Gratitude Practices: Receiving Thanks & Story 00:42:30 Theory of Mind Is Key 00:45:50 Building Effective Gratitude Practices: Adopting Narratives, Duration 00:52:28 Narratives That Shift Brain-Body Circuits  00:56:15 You Can't Lie About Liking Something; Reluctance In Giving 00:59:55 How Gratitude Changes Your Brain: Reduces Anxiety, Increases Motivation 01:03:00 5 Minutes (Is More Than Enough), 3X Weekly, Timing Each Day  01:05:44 Empathy & Anterior Cingulate Cortex 01:07:35 Reducing Inflammation & Fear with Gratitude 01:10:56 Serotonin, Kanna/Zembrin  01:16:00 Neuroplasticity, Pharmacology, Brain Machine Interfaces 01:18:50 The Best Gratitude Practices: & How To, My Protocol 01:24:25 Subscribe & Feedback, Supporting Sponsors, Supplements (Thorne)   Please note that The Huberman Lab Podcast is distinct from Dr. Huberman's teaching and research roles at Stanford University School of Medicine.

In this episode, I discuss how our brain and body track time and the role that neurochemicals, in particular dopamine and serotonin, but also hormones such as melatonin, allow us to orient ourselves in time. I review the three types of time perception: of the past, of the present, and the future, and how dopamine and serotonin adjust both our perception of the speed of the passage of time and our memory of how long previous experiences lasted. I also discuss circannual entrainment, which is the process by which our brain and body are matched to the seasons, and circadian (24 hours) entrainment, both of which subconsciously adjust our perceived measurement of time. I explain the mechanisms of that subconscious control. And I cover the ultradian (90 minutes) rhythms that govern our ability to focus, including how to track when these 90-minute rhythms begin and end for the sake of work and productivity. I include ten tools based on the science of time perception that you can apply to enhance productivity, creativity, and relationships in various contexts.    Thank you to our sponsors: ROKA - https://www.roka.com - code "huberman" Athletic Greens - https://www.athleticgreens.com/huberman  InsideTracker - https://www.insidetracker.com/huberman    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  Website - https://hubermanlab.com  Newsletter - https://hubermanlab.com/neural-network    Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introducing Time Perception, Note on Fasting & Supplements 00:05:12 Sponsors: ROKA, Athletic Greens, InsideTracker 00:09:25 Entrainment, Circannual Entrainment, Melatonin 00:13:20 Seasonal Oscillations in Testosterone & Estrogen, Tool 1 00:16:06 Circadian Timing, Tools 1, 2, 3 (for Circadian Entrainment) 00:21:13 Tool 4: Timing Physical Activity; Tool 5: Timing Eating Window 00:23:00 When Circadian Entrainment is Disrupted, Time Perception Suffers 00:25:00 Tool 6: Ultradian (90min) Cycles & Focus 00:31:42 Our Sense of the Passage of Time: Present, Prospective, Retrospective 00:34:40 Dopamine (& Nor/epinephrine) Lead to Time Overestimation; Frame Rate  00:37:18 Serotonin & Time Underestimation; Decreased Frame Rate 00:39:10 Dopamine vs. Serotonin Across the Day; Tool 7: When to Do Rigid vs. Creative Work 00:42:38 Example of Tool 7 00:43:38 How Sleep Deprivation Degrades Performance 00:44:38 Trauma, “Over-clocking” & Memories; Adjusting Rates of Experience 00:50:04 Why Trauma Involves Dopamine & Epinephrine, Arousal 00:51:03 Dopamine, Spontaneous Blinking & Time Perception; Tool 8 00:53:38 Deliberate Cold Exposure, Dopamine, Tool 9: Adjusting Frame Rate in Discomfort 00:56:30 Fun “Feels Fast” BUT Is Remembered as Slow; Boring Stuff “Feels Slow,” Recall As Fast 01:00:54 Retrospective Time, Context Variation & Enhanced Bonding with Places & People 01:03:00 Dopamine Release Resets the Start of Each Time Bin on Our Experience 01:07:40 Habits & Time Perception; Tool 10 (Setting Functional Units of Each Day) 01:11:58 Synthesis & Book Suggestion (Your Brain Is a Time Machine by D.

“We are living in a world that primes us all for the problem of addiction. So even though some people come into this world more vulnerable than others, simply being alive in the world today has made us all vulnerable to the problem of addiction,” so says our guest today, Dr. Anna Lembke. Dr. Lembke is a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. An expert in all things addiction, Dr. Lembke has published more than a hundred peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, and commentaries; she sits on the board of several state and national addiction-focused organizations, has testified before various Congressional Committees, and does so all while maintaining a thriving clinical practice.  On today's episode, we discuss her instant New York Times Bestseller, Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence, which explores the many faces of addiction. Dr. Lembke notes that addiction is a spectrum disorder, and though we often attempt to otherize “addicts”, the exact same mental machinery engaged in so-called severe addiction is engaged in the compulsive over-consumption that afflicts many of us. We discuss the way in which our brain is wired to balance pleasure and pain and how to know when our consumption has crossed from healthy, recreational use to addictive, maladaptive use. Finally, Dr. Lembke leaves us with some strategies for recalibrating our neural-balance, including the perhaps counterintuitive remedy of exposing ourselves to pain in order to treat our pain.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS: Identifying the risk factors for addiction…(5:53) The balance between pleasure and pain…(11:45) The Dopamine Guideposts…(18:49)  Finding healing stories and re-calibrating the neuro-plasticity of the brain…(28:21) MORE FROM ANNA LEMBKE: Anna Lembke's Website Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence Drug Dealer, MD – How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It's So Hard to Stop Learn more about your ad choices.

If you were born in the digital age of technology where electronic devices and social media started affecting your life directly or indirectly. You easily start feeling like you're not enough, there's something missing or like you should be doing more than you are.Anna Lembke is a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. She writes, “humans are the ultimate seekers.” Because of the way we are wired with the flood of hormones and chemicals released physiologically, we are always looking for the next dopamine hit without ever consciously identifying and labeling it. So, if it is in your nature to pursue a reward that is ever elusive, what reward do you decide to focus on? In this episode, Anna and Tom explore why using the love of the pursuit as a drug of choice to get dopamine rewards can be very dangerous. Anna also explains the pleasure pain balance and why too much pleasure and too much positive overload is still a form of stress to watch out for.Order Anna Lembke's book, Dopamine Nation, Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/152474672X?tag=randohouseinc7986-20 SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Anna Lembke1:00 | Pursuit is Rewarding10:12 | Dopamine Insensitivity16:17 | Pleasure Pain Balance26:24 | Dopamine Reset29:21 | Cannabis Use & Potency34:07 | Pornography Addiction39:56 | Truth Telling Reward50:38 | Spirituality in Neurochemistry59:05 | Social Media Connection1:12:16 | To Exert Will or Not1:25:10 | Danger in StrivingQUOTES:“We are hardwired to approach pleasure and avoid pain.

We also discuss how stress-induced "catecholoamines" can increase testosterone or decrease it, depending on duration and mindset. And we discuss specific cold- and heat- therapies for increasing resilience, reducing inflammation, heat shock proteins and more. We discuss nutrition for training and how to match nutrition to training goals, and metabolic flexibility. We discuss mental focus and how long to train for skill development. Finally, we discuss how mixed martial arts and the UFC Performance Institute are a template for exploring human performance more generally.

This episode teaches you a lot about the immune system, immune-brain interactions and offers 12 potential tools for enhancing immune system function. I discuss how our immune system works and science-supported tools we can use to enhance our immune system. I discuss the innate and adaptive immune systems and our various microbiomes-- not just in our gut but also in our nose, eyes and mouth and how to keep them healthy. And I review how specific patterns of breathing and foods maintain a healthy mucosal barrier that is crucial for fighting infections. I discuss how certain neurochemicals called catecholamines enhance our immune system function and how to use specific breathing protocols, types and timing of heat and cold exposure, and, if appropriate, supplementation to activate catecholamines. I also discuss the role and use of serotonin for the sake of accessing the specific types of sleep for recovering from illness, and I discuss how to increase glymphatic "washout" of brain debris during sleep. I also review fever, the vagus nerve and the use of atypical yet highly effective compounds for rhinitis (nasal inflammation).

Emerging science shows a strong connection between our brains and our gut, or the gut-brain axis. While you might think that these two organs have very different structures and functions, they actually have more in common than you'd think. The gut and the brain are connected by the vagus nerve and neurotransmitters, and our gut microbes can even communicate with our brains.  When it comes to brain function and the science behind the gut-brain connection, Dr. Andrew Huberman is one of the world's foremost experts. Dr. Huberman is a highly-regarded neuroscientist and tenured professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He is the director of Huberman Lab at Stanford, and the host of the Huberman Lab Podcast.  In part two of this interview series, Dr. Huberman is sharing his expertise on the numerous benefits that fasting can have on the brain and the neurobiology behind overeating, hyper-palatable foods, and obesity. You're also going to learn about the gut-brain axis, the glymphatic system, and the role that stress plays in the brain, and so much more. Enjoy!  In this episode you'll discover: The many benefits of time-restricted feeding.  How fasting can create harmony in your brain's reward pathways. The ideal eating window for intermittent fasting. Why being inconsistent with fasting is like having jet lag. What you can learn from your own resistance.  How dopamine works.  What the gut-brain axis is, and how the neurons in those systems communicate. Why hidden sugars encourage overeating.  Three things you can do to improve your gut-brain axis.  What micro addictions are.  The benefits of eating 2-4 servings of low sugar fermented food per day. Why sleep and microbiome are two main pillars of health. How inflammation in the brain is unlike other types of inflammation. What the glymphatic system is and how to support it.
