  1. Age Proof: Professor Rose Anne Kenny explores the new science of living a longer and healthier life

    Why do some of us live longer than others? Why do we live twice as long today as our ancestors did 200 years ago? And what does the latest science teach us that will help us not only live longer lives but also to live fitter, healthier and happier lives, deep into our later years?

    Rose Anne Kenny is a Professor of Medical Gerontology at Trinity College Dublin and Principal Investigator at The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA). With over 35 years of experience in the science of ageing, she will share insights from her award-winning, ground-breaking research to reveal how new scientific developments are helping us to live longer and healthier lives.

  2. ADHD & How Anyone Can Improve Their Focus | Huberman Lab Podcast #37

    In this episode, I discuss ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder): what it is, the common myths, and the biology and psychology of ADHD.

    I discuss both behavioral and pharmacologic treatments for ADHD, and brain-machine interface tools. I also discuss behavioral training protocols that can improve focus in people with ADHD and those without ADHD, and for people of different ages. I discuss the role of dopamine in coordinating ‘default-mode’ and ‘task-related’ neural networks, attentional “blinks” (lapses of attention) and how to overcome them, and the role of actual blinks in time perception and attention. Finally, I review some of the prescription and over-the-counter compounds for increasing focus such as Adderall, Ritalin, Modafinil and Armodafinil, the racetams, Alpha-GPC and phosphatidylserine and the role of diet for managing ADHD (and the controversies of diet for ADHD).

    The role of cell phones/technology in ADHD and ADHD-like challenges with focus are also discussed. Throughout, both basic science and clinical scenarios, as well as applicable tools and resources are covered.

    How are you labeled? How have you been labeled by others? And how have you labeled yourself? You listen to this podcast, which means that you’re the type of person who thinks about who they are in this world, who they’ve been and who they’re becoming. One of the ways we claim a sense of self is by the labels we give ourselves. What at first can be a helpful handhold can soon become a straitjacket, what William Blake would call a “mind forged manacle”. I’m wondering how your current labels serve you. And I’m wondering how they don’t.

    Caroline Webb is a renowned expert in the field of behavioral science and how to apply its insights to improve your daily life. She is the author of the popular book How to Have a Good Day. Her career began as an economist working on public policies, but she soon realized her true passion was in the human aspect of economics, specifically what makes a good team and leader. She eventually returned to behavioral economics, where she continues to work as a leadership coach and executive coach. Webb is known for her courage to step out of her comfort zone and take voyages of discovery, she encourages others to do the same.

    Caroline reads two pages from ‘How Emotions Are Made’ by Lisa Feldman Barrett. [reading begins at 10:52]

    Hear us discuss:

    Looking for the “sticky” or resistant parts of change when you’re trying to make a decision. Ask yourself, “What if I were not fearful about that? What would I do? Could I do that in a small way?” [5:05]

    “Your emotions are just your brain’s best guess at trying to make sense of what’s going on, both in what you’re experiencing and perceiving from the outside world, but also what you’re noticing in your body.” [15:12]

    “We don’t want to reinvent or question everything all the time, because this is actually the way that our brain navigates, see trillions of pieces of data at any given moment. We need to have an interpretation hypothesis.” [21:10]

    “Maybe what we’re experiencing in our heads is a simulation, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a wonderful life.” [32:23]

    “I think of my personal mission in life as being of service to others and helping other people thrive.” [33:42]

  8. Google’s Annie Jean Baptiste: Building better products for everyone

    As designers and design leaders, most of us understand the ethical importance of making our products accessible and inclusive for all the people who use them. But we don’t always understand the best way to go about doing this, or the business case for making it a priority.

    That’s why we were excited to speak with Annie Jean Baptiste, Head of Product Inclusion at Google. Our recent guest John Maeda said, “If there is one voice in tech to listen to right now, it is Annie’s on the material impact of inclusion in business today and in the future.”

    Annie recently wrote a book called Building For Everyone: Expand Your Market With Design Practices From Google's Product Inclusion Team. We ask her about what spurred her to write the book, along with some of the strategies she uses for researching, designing, and shipping inclusive products.

    We hope you come away from this conversation with some ideas you can bring back to your own team, to make better products for everyone. Thanks for listening.

    Takeaways: • Learn about the “ABCs of Product Inclusion” which Annie writes about in her book. • Hear about hiring practices to build inclusive teams. • Get guidance on how to build this role into your own team.
