How to Change Your Brain With Dr. Andrew Huberman (+ Utkarsh!)

Behavior first. Thoughts, feelings and perceptions follow.
Andrew Huberman

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Past the ripe age of 25, we are fully cooked; calcified in our ways. So dispense with the idea of learning a new language, skill, or thought pattern—it’s just not happening.

But what if that idea is simply false?

What if I told you that you actually have the power to change your brain and reprogram your perception, irrespective of age?

This is the life’s work of today’s guest, Andrew Huberman, Ph.D.

A neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University School of Medicine, Andrew specializes in neuroplasticity--the brain's ability to reorganize and repair itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. He is the recipient of the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award, a Biomedical Scholar Award from the Pew Charitable Trusts and in 2017 Andrew received the ARVO Cogan Award for making major contributions to the fields of vision science and efforts to regenerate the visual system and cure blindness. In addition, his work in the Huberman Lab at Stanford has been featured on the pages of ScienceDiscoverScientific AmericanTime, and the New York Times, not to mention countless peer-reviewed journals.

First and foremost, this is a conversation about what it really takes to shift our thought patterns.

A master class on all things neuroplasticity, Dr. Huberman walks us through the brain's inherent ability to modify itself based on experience and how we can advantageously leverage this process--through focus, mindfulness and restorative sleep--to not only learn new skills but also improve all essential aspects of well-being.

We cover his research in self-motivation, and how we can hijack our dopamine systems and optimize stress to move forward in difficult situations. 

We discuss the inner workings of our nervous systems and how we can use our physical bodies—our diaphragms and visual systems—to access and optimize certain states of mind.

And we also explore Dr. Huberman’s personal transformation. How he transcended family dysfunction and his days as a punk rock skater truant. And the most unlikely path he blazed to becoming the celebrated scientist he is today.

But more than anything, this is a conversation about how to better self-regulate ourselves as animals.

We are experiencing a cultural devolution in which society has become biochemically addicted to entrenched, all-or-nothing thinking and myopic perceptions of life. Simply put, emotions cloud our judgment. This discourse is a vital effort to better understand the powerful role cognitive bias and hormones like dopamine and adrenaline play in affirming our world views—and shutting us down to the opinions and experiences of others.

Andrew teaches us that to shift the way that you function, changing your behavior is the first step. 

I just see it as the science backing my favorite mantra -- mood follows action.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the audio version streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

The Appetizer: People seemed to enjoy my previous brief check-in segments with Mishka Shubaly and Nadia Bolz-Weber so I thought I’d do it again. Today’s main course warm-up comes courtesy of my friend Utkarsh Ambudkar, the linguistically dexterous musician, actor and rapper longtime listeners will recall from RRP #373. The occasion is the release of We Are Freestyle Love Supreme--a must see documentary that chronicles a tribe of über-talented artists--including UTK and one Lin-Manuel Miranda--from humble beginnings to Broadway superstardom. I love this film. Check it immediately on Hulu (and no, this is not a sponsored thing).

Final Note: If you're enjoying my bi-weekly 'ask me anything' themed-episodes and have a question you'd like answered on air you can drop it on our Facebook Group page or leave us a voicemail. Our brand-spanking-new 'Roll On' phone line is live at 424-235-4626. Hit us up!

I am super impressed by Andrew, his story and the crucial work he is doing. And grateful for the practical tools graciously shared today.

May this exchange serve to expand your perception, capabilities, and worldview.

1. How to Counter Anxiety + Sleep Like a Baby | with Andrew Huberman

Be Well By Kelly
Episode artwork
Read more

Andrew Huberman is an American neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University, where he runs Huberman Lab, researching how the brain works (function), how it can change through experience (plasticity) and how to repair brain circuits damaged by injury or disease (regeneration).

I’ve been following his work religiously since I first met him at mindbodygreen’s Revitalize event, where he shared his research on the profound effect that breathwork can have on the brain.

Today, he shares some real, practical tips for reducing anxiety and improving sleep, including his favorite breathwork script. Not only are all of these practices grounded in science but they’re also accessible to just about everyone. You don’t need any expensive equipment or years of training — just a little time and structure.

You will learn about...

  • Real-Time Interventions to Counter Anxiety (16:45)
  • 3 Foundational States (25:50)
  • “Fight, Flight, Freeze, and Confront” (32:50)
  • Neuroplasticity 101 (41:10)
  • Sleep Support Tools (47:30)
  • Deep Rest (1:00:25)
  • Yoga Nidra & Breathwork tips (1:14:45)

Understand how your brain works: a discussion with Stanford neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Huberman

Muscle Intelligence
Episode artwork
Read more

The topic of neuroscience can be intimidating due to its vastness and complexity. Today on the podcast, we welcome neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Huberman to guide us through the unchartered terrain of the mind, explaining in simple language the scientific processes behind sleep, relaxation, breathing, learning, unlearning, and more, and how each of these is related to mental and physical functioning. Dr. Huberman provides an overview of the history of neuroscience, explaining how the field has shifted the focus away from the regional activity in the brain to look at the importance of neural circuits. We discuss the Huberman Lab’s studies of stress and anxiety and the three protocols they employ to induce the regenerative benefits of sleep, including yoga nidra, hypnosis, and breathing practices. Contrary to popular belief, humans are wired for multitasking and Dr. Huberman shares a great deal about directing your attention both internally or externally, and the various purposes of both. One of the most important takeaways from our conversation is that, for humans to function optimally, they need to be able to deliberately disengage – to “rest” their attention. In addition to providing a ton of advice on this front, Dr. Huberman also shares insights on child and adult learning, how these processes might be enhanced, and the new work they are doing in trauma counseling and unlearning negative mental patterns. We shift to talking about circadian rhythms, the importance of correctly timed exposure to light, and why mental health – like physical fitness – is something to be earned. 

Timestamps

  • A brief history of neuroscience and why it has become prominent in the 21st century. [4:27]
  • Understanding neural circuits rather than focusing only on regional activity in the brain. [6:37]
  • Measuring stress and performance and how they test these responses in people. [10:54]
  • The practice of yoga nidra: how it recovers sleep and builds dopamine reserves. [12:56]
  • What hypnosis as a relaxation protocol involves and how it relates to internal control. [19:24]
  • Breathing practices and what all three protocols teach about interoception. [21:39]
  • How humans are biologically wired to multitask and focus on two things at once. [24:46]
  • The benefits of focusing your second sphere of attention on your internal landscape. [31:25]
  • Understanding that your ability to pay attention is directly proportional to your ability to deliberately disengage. [36:47]
  • The role of neural plasticity and adaptive plasticity in development and learning. [40:53]
  • The reason why learning in adulthood requires far more effort than in childhood. [44:25]
  • How supplementing acetylcholine can expedite the learning process. [50:22]
  • Unlearning, introducing competing thoughts, and new approaches to trauma. [56:11]
  • The relevance of eye movements and vision in stress and anxiety. [1:00:14]
  • How correctly timed light plays such a crucial role in mental and physical health. [1:04:53] 
  • Why mental health is something that you have to “earn” just like health and fitness. [1:12:26]
