ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Now more than ever before the world is moving at a pace faster than our 2 million-year-old brains can catch up. Adam says that as a species our brains aren’t evolving quickly enough so we’re experiencing a cognition crisis and the fallout of this crisis are attention deficit disorders. Through the application of treatments involving video games and mindfulness practices, we can not only be more productive in our life but also feel more fulfilled in our lives. We talk about how to build our minds to increase our attention, expand our perception, improve our decision making, and better regulate our emotions.
- The brain is a muscle – it’s trainable.
- We may soon be entering a time where doctors prescribe digital medicine – video games as medication for ADHD. Even if you don’t have ADHD or another attention deficit disorder, you can still benefit from training your brain.
- You can use monotasking and mindfulness to fight anxiety and be more productive.
- The world needs wisdom. Part of wisdom is the development of our intuition and internal awareness. It’s the foundation of how we approach all things and each other.
Adam Gazzaley is a neuroscientist, speaker, entrepreneur, photographer, author… He’s a hyphen through and through. But what he’s obsessed with these days is using technology to retrain and improve the use of our human brains, using it even to treat ADHD and other mental conditions.
