These are, as we all know, particularly anxious times; in this age of the Coronavirus pandemic, anxiety is clearly widespread. But what are the "good" aspects of anxiety? Our guest on ST Medical Monday is Dr. Wendy Suzuki, a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at New York University and a well-known authority on neuroplasticity. She joins us to discuss her bestselling new book, "Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion." Per The Washington Post: "The book contains surveys and strategies to help people assess and even befriend their anxiety. It's a powerful reminder that many of the human body's adaptations can be used for good or ill -- and that people can flip their responses to what can feel like inevitable feelings of anxiety and stress."

So, you're up early, get the kids ready (or not), grab a coffee and you're running out the door to start another- busy day. The problem is everyday is a busy day, and the reality is that a majority of women (and men too) never feel like there are enough hours in the day. This leads to more stress and more anxiety. Add to all this the fact that in 2020 it was estimated the average person was spending almost 2 and a half hours on social media every day. This would be okay, except that Dr. Wendy Suzki points out that continuous exposure to news and social media is contributing heavily to anxiety and stress. According to Dr. Wendy, there are healthy levels of stress you need in your life, and there are detrimental levels of stress and anxiety that do you no favors. So how do you cope with all the added stress? Avoid it? Pretend it's not a thing, or even worse, spiral out of control ?

"The brain is very responsive. One of its most amazing capacities is its ability to change, and one of the most common experiences of brain plasticity is the ability to have new experiences and new sounds stick with us." Dr. Wendy Suzuki is here, to talk all things music, exercise, and yes, the brain. She is a highly distinguished neural scientist--at her lab at New York University and through her research and writing-- and she is telling us the truth about how we can, at every stage in life, mold, stretch, and yes, improve our brain. This is a fascinating and energetic conversation on the topic we all wonder about. What's going on inside the brain? is improvement always possible, no matter what the age? The answer, it seems, might be yes. Dr. Wendy A. Suzuki is a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology in the Center for Neural Science at New York University. She received her undergraduate degree in physiology and human anatomy at the University of California, Berkeley in 1987 studying with Prof. Marion C. Diamond, a leader in the field of brain plasticity. She went on to earn her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from U.C. San Diego in 1993 and completed apost-doctoral fellowship at the National Institutes of Health before accepting her faculty position at New York University in 1998. Her major research interest continues to be brain plasticity. She is best known for her extensive work studying areas in the brain critical for our ability to form and retain new long-term memories. More recently her work has focused on understanding how aerobic exercise can be used to improve learning, memory and higher cognitive abilities in humans. Wendy is passionate about teaching (see her courses), about exercise (intenSati), and about supporting and mentoring up and coming scientists. ----------------- www.talkingbeats.com Please consider supporting Talking Beats with Daniel Lelchuk via our Patreon: patreon.com/talkingbeats In addition to early episode access, bonus episodes, and other benefits, you will contribute to us being able to present the highest quality substantive, long-form interviews with the world's most compelling people.

This is part 2 of my chat with Dr. Wendy Suzuki. Visit https://www.bodyshotperformance.com/podcasts-blog for the complete show notes of every podcast episode. Topics Discussed in this Episode: What meditation does to the brain Key Takeaways: It has been discovered that one of the things that exercise does for the brain is hippocampal neurogenesis. As such, the longevity of memory can be made possible through exercise and physical activity. Hippocampal plaques and tangles are what causes Alzheimer’s and dementia. Sleep is essential for healthy brain functioning. It can’t be emphasized enough how critical good, normal sleep and regular normal sleep is for your brain. One of the most noticeable effects of exercise is on a person’s mood. You feel good and happy after a workout, and that is because physical activity stimulates the release of dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline, endorphins, and enkephalins. A regular physical aerobic activity has been shown to be as effective as the most commonly-used antidepressant to treat major depressive disorder. Physical exercise also stimulates growth factors that help the brain grow and create connections or synapses. A key growth factor is known as Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which stimulates the birth of hippocampal neurons. Regular aerobic exercise also improves the circulatory system. It stimulates brand new blood vessels in the brain, called angiogenesis. The brain is the number user of oxygen in the entire body, and the more blood vessels you have, the better that that oxygenated blood can profuse the entire brain. As we age, we become more and more susceptible to strokes. The best thing to have in your brain if a blood vessel bursts are more blood vessels to help in your recovery. Regular walks three to five times a week have been shown to be effective in decreasing your chances of getting dementia by 30%. And if you are a high-fit woman in middle age, you are 90% less likely to get dementia when you’re older Action Steps: Practice meditation. Increase your personal connections. Test your brain! Sign up at Wendy’s Website and take the cognitive tests once they’re available. Wendy said: “I consider sleep similar to exercise in the sense that it is two of the most healthy things that you can do for your brain. I think of what’s happening with exercise during the day as kind of providing this wonderful bubble bath of good neurochemicals and growth factors for your brain… And the sleep is kind of flushing all that good stuff down the drain and filling it up with nice, clean water.” Thanks for listening!

How can we achieve a happy life by enriching our brain? Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology Wendy Suzuki discusses some very valuable insights from her book, Healthy Brain, Happy Life, enhancing our memory, and the positive impact of exercise on our brain. Visit https://www.bodyshotperformance.com/podcasts-blog for the complete show notes of every podcast episode. Topics Discussed in this Episode: The Healthy Brain, Happy Life as a science memoir and Wendy’s autobiography Discovering more about how the brain stores, converts, and holds on to memories What happens in the brain with Alzheimer’s and dementia The importance of exercise and sleep for optimal brain function The story of Thomas Keller and what makes memories so precious Using emotion to strengthen memories Enriching the brain through physical exercise Brain hacks that you should know about Key Takeaways: It has been discovered that one of the things that exercise does for the brain is hippocampal neurogenesis. As such, the longevity of memory can be made possible through exercise and physical activity. Hippocampal plaques and tangles are what causes Alzheimer’s and dementia. Sleep is essential for healthy brain functioning. It can’t be emphasized enough how critical good, normal sleep and regular normal sleep is for your brain. One of the most noticeable effects of exercise is on a person’s mood. You feel good and happy after a workout, and that is because physical activity stimulates the release of dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline, endorphins, and enkephalins. A regular physical aerobic activity has been shown to be as effective as the most commonly-used antidepressant to treat major depressive disorder. Physical exercise also stimulates growth factors that help the brain grow and create connections or synapses. A key growth factor is known as Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which stimulates the birth of hippocampal neurons. Regular aerobic exercise also improves the circulatory system. It stimulates brand new blood vessels in the brain, called angiogenesis. The brain is the number user of oxygen in the entire body, and the more blood vessels you have, the better that that oxygenated blood can profuse the entire brain. As we age, we become more and more susceptible to strokes. The best thing to have in your brain if a blood vessel bursts are more blood vessels to help in your recovery. Regular walks three to five times a week have been shown to be effective in decreasing your chances of getting dementia by 30%. And if you are a high-fit woman in middle age, you are 90% less likely to get dementia when you’re older Action Steps: Exercise regularly. Make sure to get enough sleep. Wendy said: “I consider sleep similar to exercise in the sense that it is two of the most healthy things that you can do for your brain. I think of what’s happening with exercise during the day as kind of providing this wonderful bubble bath of good neurochemicals and growth factors for your brain… And the sleep is kind of flushing all that good stuff down the drain and filling it up with nice, clean water.” Thanks for listening!

In this episode I reference two news article published in the beginning of 2019 addressing the alarmingly high rates of suicide within the US Special Operations Command and the United States Marine Corps. I offer up my three takeaways on what I believe to be some key missing pieces to a suicide prevention program: 1. Nutritional interventions 2. Examining and monitoring hormones and neurotransmitters 3. Rethinking the way unit physical training is conducted Linked below are the two articles which brought the 2018 suicide rates to light via social media, Wendy Suzuki’s Ted Talk presentation, an explanation of an Organic Acids Test from Dr. David Jockers. In the two news articles are comments about suicide awareness training, resources for service members contemplating suicide, behaviors, stress. What you won’t see are comments or ideas about functional and/or integrative approaches to combating suicide. You won’t see an explanation of what is going on with someone’s physiology that leads to depression, anxiety, and eventually suicidal thoughts. This episode is a quick overview of my three takeaways and a preview of topics I will cover more in depth in future episodes. https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/02/politics/socom-military-suicide-spike-2018/index.html https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/your-marine-corps/2019/01/30/suicide-rate-across-the-corps-is-at-a-10-year-high-this-is-how-the-marines-plan-to-address-it/ https://www.ted.com/talks/wendy_suzuki_the_brain_changing_benefits_of_exercise?language=en https://drjockers.com/organic-acids-test-functional-health/

In this 68th and new episode of the Strategy Skills complimentary podcast, audio version, we introduce you to an amazing neuroscientist, Dr. Wendy Suzuki. Wendy and Michael discuss how much many of us compromise our cognition and what can be done to improve our performance. You may be able to brag about that 1 a.m. email but if you could monitor your level of cognition you would quickly see, "Oh my God! This is not good." What is it doing for your brain? What is it doing for your executive functions in the prefrontal cortex? Leadership is not just about managing a team and setting goals for them. This is such a one-dimensional definition of leadership. Leadership is whether you can be fulfilled by what you are doing, be able to get up in the morning and not kill yourself in the process of meeting a goal that some shareholder wants you to meet. You have to distinguish between health and performance. You can be performing quite high but you can be doing some dangerous things to push those numbers up, or to push that productivity up. Just because you are performing well does not mean you are doing it in a sustainable way.

Where your brain goes, you go. Your brain governs the things that you say, do, and feel each and every moment of your life. Your brain is definitely the command center for the whole show. This we know for sure. But, there’s more to the story... Just because your brain is the command center, doesn’t mean that it’s calling all the shots. Your brain and body work together in tandem, influencing each other and determining your ultimate destiny in life. You see, your physical movement can enhance your brain function like few things can. Yet, many of us are led to believe that we make our brain’s better, and get “smarter”, by study alone. But no matter how fancy your pocket protector may be, without getting out and moving your body you’ll only tap into a fraction of what your brain is capable of. That’s what Dr. Wendy Suzuki discovered firsthand. Dr. Suzuki is a leading neuroscientist who has uncovered some fascinating revelations about the brain. Her hit book, Healthy Brain, Happy Life, is a wonderful compilation of her life’s work that details how we can learn faster, feel better, and keep our brains healthy and youthful for many years to come. One of her expertises is in the field of memory. Today you’re going to learn what parts of the brain influence your memory, how memories are made, and how to make them stick. Plus, you’re going to learn some powerful insights about brain plasticity, the best form of exercise for your brain, and so much more! In this episode you'll discover: Why most conventional science classes don’t connect with people. What brain plasticity really means. The surprising difference that an “enriched environment” and an “impoverished environment” can have on your brain. How “critical periods” impact your brain development. What episodic memories are and how they are formed in the brain. Four clinically proven ways that you can enhance your memory. How learning actually happens. How aerobic exercise powerfully impacts your brain health. The shocking way that mental disorders were treated with conventional medicine just a few decades ago. How Dr. Suzuki brought exercise into the classroom. What Intensati is (and how it can change your body and mind). How students improved on memory tests with one day of aerobic activity each week. The 3 crucial keys to creating a healthy brain and a happy life. Items mentioned in this episode include: Onnit.com/Model

How does exercise affect the brain? After achieving tenure at NYU and researching how memory works in the brain, neuroscientist Dr. Wendy Suzuki realized that her life was in the lab and her social and physical well being were suffering because of it. She wasn't maximizing the potential of her brain because everything you do or don't do affects the brain. She decided to do something about it - to start exercising and to get strong. She stuck to it and with hard work she started to notice the effects on her brain: her mood, memory and attention improved because of exercise. This fascinated her and has become the focus of her work as a neuroscientist. She's dedicated to researching the power of exercise to improve people’s learning memory and cognition.We talk about her new book, Healthy Brain, Happy Life: A Personal Program to Activate Your Brain & Do Everything Better, how exercise affects the brain, brain hacks, brain myths and more.Dr. Wendy Suzuki is a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at New York University (NYU)'s Center for Neural Science.

A story of movement, memory, and mentors. Dr. Wendy Suzuki introduces us to Dr. Marian Diamond, whose lively classes ushered Wendy into a career in neuroscience. And Wendy shares how she came to study how exercise profoundly affects the brain, not just the body. Dr. Marian Diamond and Wendy Suzuki on Wendy’s undergrad graduation day Here’s more from Wendy: A science mentor can make your career. Dr. Marian Diamond not only ushered me into the field of neuroscience with her lively and engaging classes but she has continued to influence me and help me throughout my work as a scientist and teacher. What made Marian such a profound mentor? Her multi-dimensionality. First, she was the best teacher I have ever experienced in my entire thirty-year career, unendingly fascinated with her specialty, human anatomy, including both brain anatomy and gross human anatomy. Now, if you have never taken an anatomy course before, you should know it can be as dry as learning last year’s tax laws. Marian made anatomy come alive, relating every brain or body part to a question or observation about ourselves, such as “The word uterus means Hysterical- do you agree with this?” Or “Do you know what the largest organ in the body is? It’s your skin- take care of it!” She made anatomy relevant and personal. Second, she made groundbreaking scientific contributions on the capacity of the brain to change in response to the environment. When she did this work in the late 1950s/early 1960s, nobody believed that the adult brain could change – at least in any ways that scientists could measure. Marian and her colleagues showed that changing a rat’s living space (what she called “enriching” the environment) could have profound effects of the brain’s anatomy and that she could measure them. In this episode, I’ll describe Marian’s pioneering studies and how they related to recent studies showing the profound ways that exercise transforms the brain. Third, she offered me a role model of a thriving, engaged and enthusiastic female scientist, even if it took me years to appreciate how lucky I was. You see, she was such a powerful presence on the Berkeley campus that I thought that smart strong, successful female neuroscientists who were extraordinary teachers were everywhere! I never questioned whether I would be able to do the same thing, because she showed me that it could be done. Only much later into my post-doctoral studies did I notice that other female scientists didn’t seem to have the same confidence that I did; they saw the sea of men in science with only a few successful women and many found it discouraging. Only later was I able to fully appreciate what a wonderful gift she gave me as my role model in science. Because Marian did the work she loved, she allowed me to sail right over worries over whether a woman could make it. In this episode, we’ll hear from Marian herself, as she teaches a class and describes her groundbreaking findings. Her work on brain plasticity is at the heart of the work that I and many neuroscientists pursue today. — Dr. Wendy Suzuki This episode was hosted by Wendy Suzuki and produced by Julie Burstein, with editing and sound design by Derek John.

Scents and tastes are powerfully evocative — one whiff of perfume or cooking aromas can transport you back to a particular moment, a particular place, a particular person. Because the things we smell reach two brain structures called the hippocampus and amygdala in just one synapse, scents can almost immediately stimulate the key brain areas for memory, emotion, and location.

Many depictions of amnesia in TV, movies, and cartoons are just plain wrong — some laughably so. Futurama Host Dr.Wendy Suzuki talks with Prof. Neal Cohen, a Neuroscientist from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. For 20 years, Neal has used bad examples of amnesia that abound in pop culture as well as the rare accurate depictions as a powerful tool in his wildly popular undergraduate course about amnesia in pop culture. Neal entertains and educates his students with examples from TV shows and films as diverse as Futurama, Memento, and 50 First Dates, and we’ll hear some of those clips. Inside the Episode: Neal Cohen Wendy and Neal illuminate some of the core features that define true amnesia, and discuss a classic finding that Neal published early in his career with Prof. Larry Squire, another expert on memory. They made the key distinction between “knowing how” and “knowing that.” Most amnesic patients can’t learn or remember that particular things happened in at a particular time or in a particular place. In fact, patients with severe amnesia are no longer able to learn or remember anything about what has happened to them. However, Neal Cohen and Larry Squire showed that the same amnesic patients could learn and remember how to do things, like work a lock, or solve a puzzle with blocks, or swing a racquet. Thus, they could learn and remember how to do things, but not that those things had happened. At the end of every class, Neal asks his students to write their own short screenplay about a character with amnesia.

Imagine remembering your childhood, your parents, the history you learned in school, but never being able to form a new long term memory after the age of 27. Welcome to the life of the famous amnesic patient “HM”, who had experimental surgery to relieve his terrible epilepsy, and woke up with a profound memory impairment. Neuroscientist Suzanne Corkin studied HM for almost half a century, and considered him a friend, even though he could never remember how he knew her. Suzanne gives us a glimpse of what daily life was like for him, and his tremendous contribution to our understanding of how our memories work. Inside the Episode For 50 years, Patient HM’s true identity was hidden from the public, but when he died in 2008 we learned his name was Henry Moliason. We hear him speak in this episode, and talk about his cheerful willingness to undergo test after test (though once they were finished, he couldn’t remember ever having done them) in order to help others.

How has our understanding of the mysterious tissue between our ears changed in the past 50 years? In her Totally Cerebral episodes on Transistor, neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki introduces us to scientists who have uncovered some of the deepest secrets about how our brains make us who we are. Brenda Milner in 2011 | Photo by Eva Blue Wendy begins by talking with groundbreaking experimental psychologist Brenda Milner , who in the 1950s, completely changed our understanding of the parts of the brain important for forming new long-term memories. Through her observation and careful study of patients with profound amnesia, Brenda wrote a paper in 1957 that broke with the accepted theories about memory, and blew open the entire field of neuroscience. Inside the Episode The brain! The front view shows the location of the right and left hippocampus (in orange/yellow) within the brain’s temporal lobe. The side view shows the location of the left hippocampus (in orange/yellow) within the temporal lobe. (Click to enlarge.) Brenda Milner was born in 1918, and she is still working and using the same wooden chair in her office at McGill University in Montreal, where she wrote her pioneering paper on HM and memory. In fact, if you listen carefully in the episode you may hear the faint squeak of her wooden desk chair, which she has used for more than 50 years. Brenda has received numerous prizes for her work, including the Kavli Prize in 2014. HM as a young man Patient HM is perhaps the most famous amnesic patient in history. He had experimental surgery in 1953 to address his severe epilepsy, and when he woke up it was immediately clear that something was horribly wrong. Suzanne Corkin For 47 years, Suzanne Corkin, a former student of Brenda Milner, studied HM in her own lab at MIT. She’s the author of Permanent Present Tense: The Unforgettable Life of the Amnesic Patient HM. We’ll hear more from Suzanne in the next episode of Transistor.
