  • In this episode, my guest is Dr. Vivek Murthy, M.D., the acting U.S. Surgeon General who earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard and his M.D. from Yale School of Medicine. We discuss nutrition, food additives, social media and mental health, public health initiatives to combat the crisis of social isolation, the obesity crisis, addiction and other pressing issues in public health. Dr. Murthy explains the role of the U.S. government in promoting specific public health issues and the steps needed to rebuild public trust in scientific and medical information. We also discuss health care accessibility, insurance barriers and individual versus team-based medical care. We also discuss topics gleaned from listener questions, such as the facts and myths about “Big Pharma” and “Big Food” industries, scientific research and public health policies.For show notes, including referenced articles and additional resources, please visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1: https://drinkag1.com/hubermanMaui Nui Venison: https://mauinuivenison.com/hubermanROKA: https://roka.com/hubermanLMNT: https://drinklmnt.com/hubermanMomentous: https://livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Dr. Vivek Murthy(00:01:53) Sponsors: Maui Nui & ROKA(00:04:35) Surgeon General Roles(00:07:44) Illness Framework, Enhancing Wellbeing(00:12:42) Priorities as Surgeon General(00:19:50) Public Health Message Distribution(00:28:24) Diagnosis vs. Optimizing Health(00:33:04) Sponsor: AG1(00:34:01) Food Additives, Highly Processed Foods, Food Availability(00:39:11) Difficulties Addressing Health Issues & Highly Processed Foods(00:49:53) Retribution, Integrity & Public Trust(00:54:41) Company Opposition(00:58:32) Sponsor: LMNT(00:59:50) Public Health Communication, Masks & COVID-19, Public Trust(01:07:01) Masks, Humility; Building Public Trust(01:10:45) Rebuilding Relationship to Public, Vaccines(01:17:41) Community Core & Diversity; Federal Funding(01:24:55) Big Pharma, “Pill for Every Problem” Society (01:31:48) Interdisciplinary Medical Teams, Individualized & Value-Based Medical Models(01:38:44) Insurance Barriers, Mental Health Care, Drug Prices(01:44:40) Isolation Crisis, Social Disconnection, Health Risks (01:49:15) Community Organizations & Modern Life, Social Media(01:56:36) Youth & Social Media, Parents, Policy Change(02:06:45) Real Life vs. Social Media, Kids & Playtime(02:11:56) Social Media Advice for Parents(02:20:43) Society & Disconnection, Human Connection & Service(02:31:20) Zero-Cost Support, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, YouTube Feedback, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • This is episode 3 of a 4-part special series on mental health with Dr. Paul Conti, M.D., a psychiatrist who did his medical training at Stanford School of Medicine and residency at Harvard Medical School. He is the author of the book, “Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic.” Dr. Conti explains how to find, develop and strengthen healthy relationships — including romantic relationships, work and colleague relationships, and friendships. He explains a roadmap of the conscious and unconscious mind that can allow anyone to navigate conflicts better and set healthy boundaries in relationships. We also discuss common features of unhealthy relationships and clinically supported tools for dealing with relationship insecurity, excessive anxiety, past traumas, manipulation and abuse. Dr. Conti explains how, in healthy relationships, there emerges a dynamic of the mutually generative “us” and how to continually improve that dynamic. The next episode in this special series explores true self-care, which can be cultivated through a process of building self-awareness along with other important practices.

  • In this episode, I describe how your brain and body are fundamentally wired to perceive and respond to music and how those responses can be leveraged to improve your mood, allow for processing sad emotions and enhance learning and performance. I explain the data showing how music can increase motivation for cognitive or physical work, what specific music has been shown to enhance cognitive performance, and whether silence or music is more effective in enhancing focus while studying. I also discuss how specific musical pieces can rapidly reduce anxiety, as well as certain prescription medications. I explain how listening to certain types of music can improve various health metrics (e.g., heart rate). Finally, I discuss how music helps to enhance neuroplasticity (rewiring of brain connections), thereby improving learning and memory. Whether you sing, play an instrument or enjoy listening to music, this episode provides numerous science-informed tools for using music to enhance productivity, mood, emotional states, and overall enjoyment of life.For show notes, including referenced articles and additional resources, please visit hubermanlab.com.

  • This is episode 2 of a 4-part special series on mental health with Dr. Paul Conti, M.D., a Stanford and Harvard-trained psychiatrist currently running a clinical practice, the Pacific Premiere Group. Dr. Conti explains specific tools for how to overcome life’s challenges using a framework of self-inquiry that explores all the key elements of self, including defense mechanisms, behaviors, self-awareness and attention. We also discuss our internal driving forces, how to align them and ultimately, how to cultivate a powerful “generative drive” of positive, aspirational pursuits. Dr. Conti also explains how to adjust your internal narratives, reduce self-limiting concepts, overcome intrusive thoughts, and how certain defense mechanisms, such as “acting out” or narcissism, show up in ourselves and others. The next episode in this special series explores how to build healthy relationships with others.For the full show notes, including articles, books, and other resources, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1: https://drinkag1.com/hubermanBetterHelp: https://betterhelp.com/hubermanWaking Up: https://wakingup.com/hubermanEight Sleep: https://eightsleep.com/hubermanMomentous: https://livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Improve Mental Health(00:02:19) Sponsors: BetterHelp & Waking Up App(00:05:26) Structure & Function of Healthy Self (00:16:25) Agency & Gratitude(00:21:14) Aggressive Drive, Pleasure Drive, Generative Drive(00:30:00) Physical & Mental Health Similarities, Verb States(00:37:05) Sponsor: AG1(00:38:32) Lack of Motivation, Drives(00:43:06) Video Games/Social Media & Distraction, Generative Drive(00:51:46) Asking Better Questions, Psychiatric Medicine, Physical Health Parallels(00:59:10) Sponsor: Eight Sleep(01:00:30) Self-Reflection & Structure of Self “Cupboards”, Trauma & Agency(01:08:53) Feeling Stuck, Defense Mechanisms & Sublimation, Character(01:13:58) Self-Reflection & Function of Self “Cupboards”, Self-Awareness(01:19:24) Defense Mechanisms & “Acting Out”(01:26:43) Salience, Intrusive Thoughts(01:31:24) Self-Reflection, Behaviors & Strivings; Roadmap Forward(01:38:25) Internal Narratives, Childhood(01:44:44) Internal Narratives: Self-Scrutiny & Overcoming; Trauma(01:55:18) Time Required for Change, Understanding Intrusive Thoughts(02:03:13) Self-Reflection on Internal Drives; Envy(02:09:56) Generative Drive; Strong Aggressive Drive & Envy(02:21:50) High Aggressive Drive & Social Relationships, Narcissism(02:28:43) Narcissism, Destruction, Envy(02:37:18) Narcissism & Childhood, Change(02:41:26) Engaging with Narcissists, Disengagement(02:44:47) Demoralization, Learned Helplessness(02:49:34) Self-Inventory of Drives, Optimization(02:56:09) Social Media & Salience, Generative Drive(03:03:21) Rational Aspiration(03:13:16) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Social Media, Momentous, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this journal club episode, my guest is Stanford and Johns Hopkins-trained physician, Dr. Peter Attia, M.D., who is also the host of The Drive podcast and the author of the bestselling book "Outlive: The Science & Art of Longevity."We each present a scientific paper and discuss the findings' strengths, weaknesses and actionable takeaways.First, we discuss an article that addresses whether taking the drug metformin can enhance longevity. Then, we discuss an article on belief effects (similar to placebo effects), showing how the effects of a drug on the brain and cognition depend on one's belief about the dose of the drug taken, not the actual dose.Our conversation also highlights how to read, interpret and critique scientific studies. This episode ought to be of interest to those curious about health and longevity, medicine and psychology and for anyone seeking to better understand how to read and digest scientific findings.For show notes, including referenced articles and additional resources, please visit hubermanlab.com.

  • This is episode 1 of a 4-part special series on mental health with psychiatrist Dr. Paul Conti, M.D., who trained at Stanford School of Medicine and completed his residency at Harvard Medical School before founding his clinical practice, the Pacific Premiere Group. Dr. Conti defines mental health in actionable terms and describes the foundational elements of the self, including the structure and function of the unconscious and conscious mind, which give rise to all our thoughts, behaviors and emotions. He also explains how to explore and address the root causes of anxiety, low confidence, negative internal narratives, over-thinking and how our unconscious defense mechanisms operate. This episode provides a foundational roadmap to assess your sense of self and mental health. It offers tools to reshape negative emotions, thought patterns and behaviors — either through self-exploration or with a licensed professional. The subsequent three episodes in this special series explore additional tools to further understand and improve your mental health.For the full show notes, including articles, books, and other resources, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1: https://drinkag1.com/hubermanBetterHelp: https://betterhelp.com/huberman Waking Up: https://wakingup.com/hubermanMomentous: https://livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Dr. Paul Conti(00:03:46) Sponsors: BetterHelp & Waking Up App(00:06:55) What is a Healthy Self?(00:10:41) Agency & Gratitude; Empowerment & Humility (00:16:13) Physical Health & Mental Health Parallels(00:20:21) Structure of Self; Unconscious vs. Conscious Mind; “Iceberg”(00:26:15) Defense Mechanisms; Character Structure “Nest”, Sense of Self (00:31:27) Predispositions & Character Structure(00:36:01) Sponsor: AG1(00:37:27) Character Structure & Action States; Physical Health Parallels(00:46:20) Anxiety; Understanding Excessive Anxiety(00:53:12) Improving Confidence: State Dependence & Phenomenology; Narcissism(00:59:44) Changing Beliefs & Internal Narratives(01:06:04) Individuality & Addressing Mental Health Challenges(01:11:21) Mental Health Goals & Growth(01:17:32) Function of Self(01:23:00) Defense Mechanisms: Projection, Displacement(01:30:14) Projection, Displacement, Projective Identification(01:34:50) Humor, Sarcasm, Cynicism(01:40:41) Attention & Salience; Negative Internal Dialogue (01:45:02) Repetition Compulsion & Defense Mechanism, Trauma(01:58:55) Mirror Meditation & Self Awareness; Structure & Function of Self, “Cupboards”(02:04:57) Pillars of the Mind, Agency & Gratitude, Happiness(02:13:53) Generative Drive, Aggressive & Pleasure Drives(02:21:33) Peace, Contentment & Delight, Generative Drive; Amplification(02:24:18) Generative Drive, Amplification & Overcoming(02:33:00) Over-Thinking, Procrastination, Choices(02:42:20) Aggressive, Pleasure & Generative Drives, Envy(02:49:46) Envy, Destruction, Mass Shootings(02:55:38) Demoralization, Isolation, Low Aggressive Drive(03:02:50) Demoralization, Affiliate Defense (03:09:32) Strong Aggressive Drive, Competition, Generative Drive Reframing (03:20:02) Cultivating a Generative Drive, Spirited Inquiry of the “Cupboards”(03:26:06) Current Mental Health Care & Medications(03:35:33) Role of Medicine in Exploration(03:40:41) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Social Media, Momentous, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, my guest is Marc Andreessen, the legendary software innovator who co-created the internet browser Mosaic, co-founded Netscape, and is now at Andreessen Horowitz — a venture capital firm that finds and brings to life technologies that transform humanity. We discuss what it takes to be a true innovator, including the personality traits required, the role of environment and the support systems needed to bring revolutionary ideas to fruition. We discuss risk-taking as a necessary but potentially hazardous trait, as well as the role of intrinsic motivation and one’s ability to navigate uncertainty. We also discuss artificial intelligence (AI) and Marc’s stance that soon everyone will use AI as their personalized coach and guide for making decisions about their health, relationships, finances and more — all of which he believes will greatly enhance our quality of life. We also delve into nuclear power, gene editing, public trust, universities, politics, and AI regulation.

  • In this episode, I describe science-based protocols to set and achieve your goals in a way that maximizes the likelihood of reaching them. I explain how to define a priority and reach a specific goal by systematically assessing the challenge level, measurability, milestones, and action states needed to make progress from start to finish. I also explain research-supported tools to improve your performance during cognitive or physical goal work — including directed visualization, variable reward timing, and optimizing your physical environment. I also dispel common myths about goal setting and achievement. This episode provides a science-supported toolkit of zero-cost strategies for goal-setting, goal-pursuit, and goal-completion that can be applied to any physical or cognitive endeavor.For the full show notes, including articles, books, and other resources, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1: https://drinkag1.com/hubermanEight Sleep: https://eightsleep.com/hubermanMaui Nui Venison: https://mauinuivenison.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Goal Setting Toolkit(00:02:09) Sponsors: Eight Sleep & Maui Nui(00:04:43) Biology of Goal Setting & Pursuit(00:08:50) Tool 1: Choose a Priority Goal(00:12:04) Tool 2: Pursue Lofty Goals(00:17:23) Tool 3: Define Verb Actions, Measurability & Specificity; Writing vs. Typing(00:24:06) Tool 4: Visual Reminder Myth; “Post-It Fallacy”(00:26:44) Tool 5: Accountability Myth, “Don’t Tell the World” Rule(00:31:35) Intrinsic Motivation & Goal Achievement (00:32:58) Sponsor: AG1(00:33:54) Tool 6: Measurable Goal; Quarterly Cycle(00:37:35) Tool 7: Quantifiable Goals; Book Writing(00:43:34) Tool 8: Visualization of End; Motivation & Negative Thinking(00:50:38) Sponsor: InsideTracker(00:51:44) Tool 9: Visual Target/Finish Line Training & Perceived Effort(01:05:50) Tool 10: Distance from Phone(01:08:31) Tool 11: Random, Intermittent Reinforcement; Cognitive Rewards(01:17:11) Tool 12: “Middle Problem”; Time Chunking(01:23:16) Tool 13: Circadian Rhythm & Attention(01:30:09) Tool 14: Protocol Flexibility, Subjective Feelings(01:32:13) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Momentous, Neural Network Newsletter, Social Media Title Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, my guest is Dr. David Linden, Ph.D., professor of neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the author of many popular books about the brain. We discuss individual differences between people — focusing on differences in how people sense the world around them and the roles that chance, heredity, and life experiences (even in utero) play in determining our physical and cognitive traits. We discuss the bidirectional connection between the mind and body and how our thoughts and mental practices (e.g., meditation and breathwork) impact our health. We also discuss the link between inflammation and depression. We also discuss Dr. Linden’s terminal illness diagnosis, his mindset during chemotherapy and what his diagnosis has taught him about the mind, gratitude, time perception and life. This episode also covers sensual touch, cerebellar function, and epigenetic inheritance and ought to be of interest to all interested in neuroscience, genetics, psychology and human development.

  • In this episode, I explain how ketamine causes rewiring of brain circuits and dissociative states to relieve symptoms of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I explain how ketamine impacts both the brain’s glutamate and its endogenous opioid pathways, which together regulate mood and well-being. I discuss how ketamine therapy is used clinically to treat major depression, bipolar depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), suicidality and other psychiatric challenges. I also describe how ketamine causes the subjective effects of dissociation and euphoria and, at higher doses, is an anesthetic. I compare the different routes of ketamine administration, dosages and forms of ketamine, and if micro-dosing ketamine is effective. I also highlight the potential risks of recreational ketamine use (and the colloquial term ‘K-holes’). This episode should interest anyone interested in ketamine, treatments for depression, neuroplasticity mechanisms, psychiatry and mental health.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1: https://drinkag1.com/hubermanROKA: https://roka.com/hubermanEight Sleep: https://eightsleep.com/hubermanLMNT: https://drinklmnt.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Ketamine(00:02:29) Sponsors: ROKA & Eight Sleep(00:05:13) Ketamine & PCP; Clinical & Recreational Use(00:09:00) Depression & Current Treatments(00:15:17) Preclinical Models of Depression & Ketamine; “Learned Helplessness” (00:22:11) Ketamine & Clinical Uses; Depression & Suicidality (00:28:32) Ketamine & Other Psychiatric Challenges; Relief & Durability (00:33:24) Sponsor: AG1(00:34:29) NMDA Receptor & Neuroplasticity(00:41:36) Excitatory & Inhibitory Communication, Seizure, NMDA Receptors & Ketamine(00:48:26) How Ketamine Functions in Brain; Acute & Long-Term Effects(00:55:36) Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) & Ketamine Therapy(01:02:28) Sponsor: LMNT(01:03:40) Ketamine & Opioid Pathway (01:10:00) Divergent Mechanisms of Immediate & Long-Term Effects(01:15:45) Habenula, Pro-Depressive Behaviors & Ketamine Therapy(01:20:36) Ketamine & Context-Dependent Strategy; Reward Pathway(01:22:45) Dissociative States(01:26:04) Doses & Routes of Administration; “K-holes”; Risk & Caution(01:32:25) Ketamine Forms; R-, S- vs R/S- Ketamine; Micro-Dosing(01:38:24) Ketamine: Effects & Therapy(01:40:40) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, my guest is Maya Shankar, Ph.D., a cognitive scientist, former senior advisor to the White House and Chair of the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team. She is the creator and host of the podcast, A Slight Change of Plans. We discuss how our identities develop and change, how our beliefs and internal narratives shape our perception of self, and how to use structured introspection about our values to determine our goals. We discuss how to cope and grow through uncertain situations, especially those that force us to reexamine our roles and identity. Dr. Shankar shares her experience of redefining her identity after an early career-ending setback. She also explains numerous science-based strategies to effectively define goals, structure our goal pursuits and maintain consistent motivation. This episode provides a science-supported toolkit and roadmap to assess your identity and goals and positively transform in the face of change.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1: https://drinkag1.com/hubermanMaui Nui Venison: https://mauinuivenison.com/hubermanEight Sleep: https://eightsleep.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Dr. Maya Shankar(00:02:37) Sponsors: Maui Nui Venison & Eight Sleep(00:05:15) Identity Foreclosure, Identity Paralysis, Throughlines(00:12:10) Identity & Adolescence; “Essence” & Shame(00:16:58) Delight & Awe(00:23:00) Delight & Possibilities for Self(00:29:28) Playing Violin, Childhood(00:34:54) Sponsor: AG1(00:35:58) Intrinsic Motivation; Juilliard & Courage(00:45:43) Competitive Environments; Curiosity & Growth(00:53:46) Re-Creating of Self(01:00:51) Pop-Science, Science Accessibility(01:05:25) Sponsor: InsideTracker(01:06:32) Passions & Curiosity(01:13:20) Change, Cognitive Closure, End-of-History Illusion(01:22:29) Self-Awareness & Critical Feedback(01:30:48) Tools: Flexible Mindset; Reframing & Venting; Gratitude(01:40:13) Tool: Framing Goals(01:47:13) Tool: Agency in Goal Pursuit(01:52:25) Tool: Like-Minded People & Goal Pursuit; Challenging Beliefs(02:01:27) Cultivating Open-Mindedness & Empathy(02:08:15) Building Self Narratives: Empathy, Burnout(02:13:56) Tools: Goal Setting(02:19:54) Tool: “Middle Problem”, Maintaining Motivation(02:24:55) Tool: Aversion & Memory, Peak-End Rule(02:31:41) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Momentous, Neural Network Newsletter, Social MediaTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, I discuss how to build and apply a growth mindset — the practice of self-rewarding and focusing on learning and skill development through effort — to improve learning and performance. I also discuss how our internal narratives drive our ability to make progress. I contrast the growth mindset vs. the fixed mindset and describe how the type of feedback or praise we receive shapes our mindsets, and the huge advantage of rewarding and celebrating “verbs” (actions) rather than adjectives (performance labels). I also discuss data showing how stress can enhance performance and explain why the growth mindset works synergistically with the “stress-is-enhancing mindset,” and how to combine them. Whether you are a student, coach, therapist, parent, teacher or simply someone seeking to improve at something, this episode provides numerous science-supported tools for how to adopt a performance enhancing mindset.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1: https://drinkag1.com/hubermanEight Sleep: https://eightsleep.com/hubermanROKA: https://roka.com/hubermanInsideTracker: https://insidetracker.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Growth Mindset(00:02:55) Sponsors: Eight Sleep & ROKA(00:05:17) Mindset & Narrative(00:12:58) Intelligence Feedback vs. Effort Feedback, Identity Labels(00:20:10) Intelligence vs. Effort Praise: Performance, Persistence & Self-Representation(00:26:45) Fixed Intelligence vs. Growth Mindset(00:28:53) Tool: Intelligence (Performance) vs. Effort Narrative, Labels(00:32:30) Tool: Failure & Identity; Effort & Verbs(00:34:36) Sponsor: AG1(00:35:41) Tool: Timing, Intelligence vs. Effort Praise & Performance(00:40:080 Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset: Failure & Performance(00:50:28) Tool: Shift from Fixed Mindset(00:54:23) Sponsor: InsideTracker(00:55:30) Stress-is-Enhancing Mindset(01:05:53) How Stress Can Enhance Performance (01:13:21) Growth Mindset + Stress-is-Enhancing Mindset & Performance(01:20:36) Reframing Stress(01:25:45) Tool 1: Student & Teacher Mindset(01:28:17) Tool 2: Effort Praise/Feedback: Verbs not Labels(01:31:24) Tool 3: Errors & Seeking Help(01:32:58) Tool 4: Self-Teaching & Growth Mindset(01:34:35) Tool 5: Reframe “Mind is Like a Muscle” Analogy(01:39:20) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer

  • In this episode, my guest is Robert Malenka, MD, PhD, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford School of Medicine who has made numerous seminal discoveries of how the brain changes (neuroplasticity) in response to learning and in response to rewarding and reinforcing experiences. We discuss the brain’s several reward systems involving dopamine and serotonin and how these motivate us to seek out specific behaviors and substances. We discuss how these reward systems are modified based on context and our memories, and how they can be hijacked toward maladaptive drug seeking in addiction. We also explore how reward systems influence social connections, oxytocin and empathy and how that applies to our understanding of autism spectrum disorders. This episode should be of interest to those interested in neuroplasticity, social bonding, addiction, autism, learning and motivation.For the full show notes, visit hubermanlab.com.Thank you to our sponsorsAG1 (Athletic Greens): https://drinkag1.com/hubermanROKA: https://roka.com/huberman Levels: https://levels.link/huberman LMNT: https://drinklmnt.com/huberman Momentous: https://livemomentous.com/hubermanSupplements from Momentoushttps://www.livemomentous.com/hubermanTimestamps(00:00:00) Dr. Robert Malenka(00:02:37) Sponsors: ROKA & Levels(00:05:21) Dopamine & Reward Circuitry(00:11:31) Reward, Arousal, Memory & Dopamine (00:17:34) Context, Cues & Dopamine Modification(00:25:38) Memory & Reward Scaling(00:30:50) Dopamine, “Addictive Liability” & Route of Administration (00:39:07) Sponsor: AG1(00:40:04) Drugs of Abuse & Brain Changes; Addiction & Individual Variability(00:50:51) Reinforcement vs. Reward, Wanting vs. Liking(00:57:500 Opioids, Psychostimulants & Dopamine(01:03:38) Sponsor: LMNT(01:04:51) Self-Doubt, Confidence & Career(01:12:40) Autism Spectrum Disorder(01:19:29) Pro-Social Interaction & Reward; Oxytocin, Serotonin & Dopamine(01:30:30) Nucleus Accumbens & Behavior Probability(01:38:28) Reward for Pro-Social Behavior(01:43:13) Social Media & “Addictive Liability”; Gambling(01:52:17) Pain, Social Behavior & Empathy(02:02:19) Empathy Circuitry, Dopamine & Serotonin (02:10:07) Autism Spectrum Disorder & Social Interactions, Empathy(02:17:23) MDMA, Serotonin & Dopamine; Addiction & Pro-Social Effects(02:28:13) Autism Spectrum Disorder, Social Behavior, MDMA & Pharmacology(02:37:18) Serotonin, MDMA & Psychedelics (02:40:16) Psychedelics: Research & Therapeutic Potential(02:47:57) Zero-Cost Support, YouTube Feedback, Spotify & Apple Reviews, Sponsors, Momentous, Social Media, Neural Network NewsletterTitle Card Photo Credit: Mike BlabacDisclaimer
