    The Brain Science Behind Building Good Habits

    The Brain Science Behind Building Good Habits

    Forming good habits is hard, and apparently there's more to it than just willpower. Dr. Jeffrey Iliff joins us for this episode to explain the brain science behind building habits. He gives tips on ways to improve your chances of building a good habit. 
    Dr. Iliff is the Associate Director for Research at the VISN 20 Northwest Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center (MIRECC) at the VA Puget Sound. He is a Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, and of Neurology at the University of Washington School of Medicine, where he is the Arthur J. and Marcella McCaffray Professor in Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr. Iliff was part of the research team that discovered the ‘glymphatic’ system, the brain’s cleaning system that is active during sleep. His research focuses on identifying the molecular changes that underlie glymphatic system failure with aging and after traumatic brain injury, extending these experimental studies into human subjects and clinical populations with an aim of developing new treatment and prevention strategies for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

What interesting conversations!

These are quite interesting conversations that are based upon strong Christian faith that is based upon believing by faith in Gods communicating with His creation. That God would be able to love us and save us in our sinfulness, and then work with our shame and guilt as we change and mature in Christ. Truly a blessing to hear about the ‘nitty gritty’ and worse, and then learning how to respond in a loving and godly manner. Don’t stop, keep on with this.

Excellent biblical discussions

I love this church, and respect the people involved in this podcast. Highly recommend as a supplement to Scripture reading, involvement in the body of Christ, and spiritual development.
