116: The Neurobiology of Stress | Dr. Andrew Huberman

Andrew Huberman is an American neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

He has made several important contributions to the fields of brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration and repair. #AndrewHuberman has been fascinated by humans and in particular, the human brain since a very early age and demonstrates not only an incredible curiosity, but a magnificent understanding of this and many other surrounding subjects for example, how we deal with stress, anxiety, grief etc. and how we can draw positive conclusions from seemingly negative situations.

In this episode we discuss:

1.The brains response to stress and how we adapt to stress
2. How to get into deep sleep and what vitamins to take to help with deep sleep
3. Neurotransmitters
4. Nootropics
5. Best way to wake up (morning rituals)

8. Yoga Nidra as a way to calm the mind and brain
