All you science enthusiasts are in for a treat this Sunday, October 16, as one of the world's leading neurologists, Dr. Huberman, will deliver an important talk on an interesting topic that will geek you all out! Yes, you've read that right! The renowned and award-winning Dr. Andrew Huberman will grace The Wiltern stage for an evening of fruitful discussion of the "Brain Body Contract." In this lecture, Dr. Huberman will discuss science and science-related tools for mental health, physical health, and performance. If you are a big fan of him and his knowledgeable podcast, this show is a must! The renowned neurologist promises that the information he'll cover in this event is largely distinct from what the audience can find in his podcast or elsewhere! If that doesn't excite you, then we don't know what will. Grab your tickets now to reserve your seats at the venue.
Dr. Andrew Huberman has been contributing extensively to the field of neuroscience. He specializes in brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration, areas piquing the interest of many professionals, students, and other individuals. Recent work in his lab has focused on brain states such as courage and fear relating to vision and respiration. This is only one of the many contributions that have earned him the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award and Pew Charitable Trusts' Biomedical Scholar Award.
He is currently a professor of neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He also runs the university's Huberman Lab, which aims to understand more about how the brain works in relation to researching how to repair it due to diseases and injury. One of the most significant research in the laboratory is the 2018 discovery of two new mammalian brain circuits that concern fear and paralysis and another that promotes brave/confrontational reactions to visually evoked threats. This discovery led to further studies about the role of the circuits' brain region in anxiety-related disorders. The laboratory's exceptional works were featured in top journals and renowned publications such as TIME and BBC.
In 2021, Dr. Huberman started the Huberman Lab Podcast, which discusses the lab's neuroscience and science-based tools. This has made neuroscience knowledge much more accessible to the public. It has become a popular podcast among listeners not even a year since its launch.
The Wiltern in Los Angeles, California, will host a special live event with Dr. Huberman. He will be speaking about the brain and body contract. If you are a science enthusiast or curious about the brain, reserve tickets now for the talk.
