How to Focus to Change Your Brain | Huberman Lab Podcast #6

L-Theanine Gummies

This episode introduces neuroplasticity–which is how our brain and nervous system learn and acquire new capabilities. I discuss the differences between adult and childhood neuroplasticity, and the chemicals involved. Also, I explain how anyone can improve their learning rate and depth by using the science of focused. Specific tools are described for improving focus and learning. In the next episodes, I will discuss specific learning methods and how to make learning more natural.
