Fear - Andrew Huberman, Ph.D. - Neuroscience

Fear - Andrew Huberman, Ph.D. - Neuroscience

You asked, we delivered: this week we bring you an encore episode of the discussion between our Co-founder, Daniel Schmachtenberger, and neuroscientist and tenured Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Andrew Huberman.

We frequently receive requests to have Dr. Andrew Huberman on the podcast. Truth is, we have quite a few in our archives, but many of the conversations occurred early in the birth of our company, resulting in the content being missed by the amazing community members now following us. To each and everyone of you: this episode is for you. 

The topic? The neuroscience of fear and how we can learn to flip the “courage circuit” in our brain. We discuss:

  • The neuroscience of fear - what’s really happening in our brain
  • Science-backed tools to rewire our behavioral response to fear
  • Why confronting fear is at the heart of human potential
  • How emotions can get in the way of controlling our fear response
  • Using hormesis to increase the body’s adaptive capacity
I would assert that it's almost impossible to become the best version of oneself without experiencing any discomfort, fear, or stress. - Andrew Huberman, Ph.D.

Transparency: this is an encore episode so some of the research Dr. Huberman discusses, has been refined by his cutting-edge lab since the original recording. That being said, the conversation is too powerful to not reshare with you. Often we hear Dr. Huberman doing the interviewing on his show, Huberman Lab Podcast. Hear what happens when Daniel asks the questions.
