Neuroscience can seem intimidating — but understanding basic principles can allow you to hack and upgrade your brain. The way we think and behave is reliant on the way our brain processes information, and how we bridge the gap between the present and the future.


Dr. Andrew Huberman, Ph.D, is a professor of neuroscience at Stanford University. He has made numerous contributions to the field of neuroplasticity, and has been awarded numerous times for his work, including as the recipient of the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award. Through his work at the Huberman Lab, Andrew has discovered non-invasive methods of regeneration of damaged retinal neurons, leading to partial recovery from blindness.

  1. It was great until he started with Hindu Chakras… sorry demon worship doesn't set my mind free, entering in a spiritual warfare and welcoming in the Kundulini into my being brings a whole lot of danger. Please stay clear from that lie.

  2. I'm so grateful to the universe for showing me the way to this video and what a wonderful man you are. I appreciate your video very much. I look forward to listening to more of them

  3. What is it about people like this that makes me feel like I am in love with them. I adore him. Nothing more attractive than dedication to making life better for everyone. It strengthens my will to live just hearing him speak. Thank you 💞

  4. He told stories but didn't really give us any hacks to improve our brain and lives. He touched on meditation, nutrition, planning ahead and attitude change. Nothing new. I'm disappointed with his talk. Kind of wasted my time.

  5. Chakras are in the subtle body. The current scientific paradigm does not account for this. Lack of imagination coupled with the profoundly limited understanding of life. Science insists that the only things that are real can be physically observed. This ridiculous notion fails to account for most of life and limits our potentiality. Study subtle body energy. Accept there are other ways of knowing beyond the externally oriented systems. 🙏🏽

  6. Excuse me I guess I didn't hear it well…20:40 he says there's a 10 y.o. kid who makes websites and organizes all peer reviewed studies on nootropics etc… so there's a 10 y.o. kid who grasps and masters the context of peer reviewed research methodology and also is an internet guru?!!! Is he taking Qualia? 😛

  7. Works and consults for big pharma? Huge red flag. I’m at two medications that I no longer take. I replaced them with natural solutions. They work better, I feel better, and they have zero side effects, unlike my old big pharma meds. Be careful not to respond to my post emotionally. Of course I recognize there are pharma meds that work where natural ones don’t. Of course. My problem is the obvious greed and lack of care of human life that I believe originates from the very top of big pharma. I absolutely believe those companies are full of people who do care and want to help. The problem is the corrupt ones who run things. Again, somewhat of a broad stroke, but I think everyone gets my point.

  8. 19:32 "So in the past, how do people tap into this acetylcholine system? How do get their attention on something for thirty minutes? Cigarettes. AMAZING stimulants of the nicotinic-acetylcholine system."
    I wonder if there are nicotine/acetylcholine nootropic vape juices available, made with pure ingredients.

  9. I believe the “Magic Eye” (stereograms) is a perfect way to train your brain. If you sense your “Third Eye” while doing it, it also works to focus and defocus at the same time. Basically the PERFECT way to do what he suggests at 23:50

  10. Love seeing huberman so young without the beard. Adorable. I've been listening to his podcast for quite a while before I saw this. If you haven't checked it out whoever you are reading this you definitely should. Just saying he's brilliant is a ridiculous understatement. I love him!
