This week as we are focusing on mental health, we would like to profile two segments presented by Dr Andrew Huberman at the APAN AESTHETIC CONFERENCE. The two topics are:
- ACHIEVEMENT AND HOW TO ACTIVATE YOUR DOPAMINE
Neuroscience is now uncovering how we can have more control over our performance by utilising certain simple protocols that will help us optimise our path to achievement. In this lecture you will learn how to use appropriate light to affect your cognitive behaviour through the secretion of specific hormones. Learning how small changes to our behaviour can allow us to gain control of our life on so many levels is so exciting.
The second segment is entitled:
- YOU WILL NEVER BE STRESSED AGAIN
An amazing and powerful presentation by Dr Andrew Huberman on how to successfully take control of your own stress levels. Learn how to trigger your brain’s ability to gain optimal sharpness and alertness and how to activate your ability to calm your brain and nervous system so that you gain more control of your life and be able to make productive, rather than reactive decisions.
Both these segments are creatively presented. They are just 10-15 minutes each and provide wonderful inspiration information to help you pick up some valuable tips for your wellbeing and mental health. Make sure you don’t miss them – we guarantee you will find them enjoyable and resourceful.
For those who have not heard of Dr Andrew D. Huberman, here are some highlights on him.
Dr.Huberman is an American neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He has made numerous important contributions to the fields of brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration and repair. A large amount of that work focused on the visual system, including the mechanisms that control light-mediated activation of the circadian and autonomic arousal centres in the brain, as well as the brain control over conscious vision or sight.
Huberman was awarded the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award (2013), and a Biomedical Scholar Award from the Pew Charitable Trusts. He is the recipient of the 2017 ARVO Cogan Award for making major contributions to the fields of vision science and efforts to regenerate the visual system and cure blindness.
He is currently or has served on as an elected member of The National Institutes of Health Grants Advisory Panel “Sensory, Perceptual, and Cognitive Processes”, and the Editorial Boards for Current Biology, The Journal of Neuroscience, The Journal of Comparative Neurology, Current Opinion in Neurobiology, Cell Reports, and Neural Development. He is a member of Faculty 1000.
