Board certified neurologist David Perlmutter, M.D., and internal medicine physician Austin Perlmutter, M.D., are all about creating next-level solutions for brain health. The father-son doctor duo sat down with mbg founder and co-CEO, Jason Wachob, to discuss how our lifestyle choices affect our decision making, an essential contributing factor to many of our health problems today. Tune in to find out how empathy can have real health benefits, how being in nature can make you more productive, and why we really make impulsive, instantly gratifying decisions (whether it's eating an extra slice of cake or skipping a run to watch TV). You may be be surprised to learn that we actually have the power to optimize our decision making—impulsivity isn’t so much a personality trait, but a state of mind.
