Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of The Most Misunderstood Emotion. With Dr. Wendy Suzuki Untangle

    • Health & Fitness

Dr. Wendy Suzuki is a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology in the Center for Neural Science at New York University. She was also recently appointed as Dean of NYU’s College of Arts & Science. 
In her book, Good Anxiety, Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion, she used new and established neuroscience to share how we can harness our fears to feel better, think better, and do better. We discuss why anxiety is so misunderstood and how we can turn it into a superpower. Much of it is pretty darn practical. 
Her other book is called Health Brain, Happy Life, here she discusses how we have the power to activate our brains. 
Her favorite line: Exercise is the most transformative thing we can do for our brain today. 
Her major research interest continues to be brain plasticity. She is best known for her extensive work studying areas in the brain critical for our ability to form and retain new long-term memories. More recently her work has focused on understanding how aerobic exercise can be used to improve learning, memory and higher cognitive abilities in humans.
