    Seth Horowitz - The Auditory Brain

    Seth Horowitz - The Auditory Brain

    Seth Horowitz, PhD., neuroscientist and author of The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind, sits down with Alex to discuss how we are all embedded in an unending ocean of sound, a rich stream of information that can be important, trivial, distracting or even dangerous. 350 million years of evolution has led us to develop an intimate relationship with sound that lets our brains sense, perceive and decide in which of categories a sound falls, all in less than a tenth of the time it takes us to see something. This is why hearing underlies some of the most complex cognitive and behavioral processes that we do, and why it provides a powerful, yet frequently ignored, tool for changing those processes. 
    In this episode listen and discover:
    In evolutionary terms, hearing is a universal sense – there are no normally deaf vertebrates. It is highly adaptive to hear because sound lets you usefully detect what is going on at great distances even out of line of sight. Hearing is a mechanical sense – it has the fewest processes between the sensation and the perception. Hearing is the fastest sense; understanding it gives you a sense of the math behind the mind. How working with sound lets us act on with specific elements and processes of the brain and mind, much more so than any other sense. The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind

    David Perlmutter - Grain Brain

    David Perlmutter - Grain Brain

    Renowned neurologist and author of the New York Times #1 Best Selling Grain Brain, David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.  Dr. Perlmutter shares what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. 
    In this episode listen and discover:
    Can Alzheimer’s be prevented? If celiac disease affects only about 1-2 % of the population, why all the concern about gluten? What’s so bad about carbs as far as the brain is concerned? What other brain issues are related to gluten sensitivity? What do you do all day – professionally? Why are American schoolchildren so unhealthy? Why Alzheimer’s may be being caused by a particular protein called beta-amyloid David Perlmutter

    Michael Merzenich - How Auditory Brain Training Can Change Your Life

    Michael Merzenich - How Auditory Brain Training Can Change Your Life

    Dr. Michael Merzenich, PhD, is one of the neuroscientists responsible for our current understanding of brain plasticity–the notion that the brain can change itself at any age. He is also the author of Soft-Wired: How the New Science of Brain Plasticity Can Change Your Life. 
    In this episode listen and discover:
    How you can improve your auditory listening abilities with neuroplasticity-based training to sharply improve your conversational, cognitive, speech and music abilities. How training your brain as a master listener also refines your attentive powers and amplifies your baseline level of arousal-your “brightness.” Evidence that these gains are attributable to strong, positive, enduring physical changes in your brain. The trained brain is a stronger, better brain. How combining auditory training and brain training in the other great perceptual and action-control domains, you can rejuvenate a struggling brain-and if taken seriously, can assure a more effective, happier, and more secure adult life.

“Your Brain is Better On Music”

This is my favorite quote, and the title of Alex’s TEDx Talk. His passion for the past 2 decades builds on his family’s vision and work to improve brain health. That’s important for all of us so we can live our best lives. His approach with this podcast was to give us access to brilliant and fascinating people who have and are making a difference in this world, so we can learn how to apply their wisdom. I love how Alex connects to each expert and asks the questions we all want answers to. Such important and profound ideas to ponder in each episode. Thank you!
