Dr. Andrew Huberman talks about how breathing exercises can help to optimize brain performance. He explains that deep breaths can help to improve CO2 tolerance and that by doing 20 cycles of breath exercises, even in real time, people can see improvements in their brain function.

  • 00:00:00 Dr. Andrew Huberman speaks about how the way someone sees the world can have a significant impact on their behavior. He discusses his work on visual development, visual repair, and visual processing, and how what people see can affect their internal state. He discusses how these factors can be important in understanding how to combat anxiety and stress.
  • 00:05:00 The video discusses how the brain's "ventral medial thalamus" (NMTH) plays a role in adaptive behaviors, such as tail rattling in response to a threatening stimulus. Lindsey Slay's research has found that this pathway is also responsible for shifting an individual's state of arousal, which may be the healthy response in some cases.
  • 00:10:00 In this video, Dr. Andrew Huberman discusses breathing exercises that can help optimize brain performance. He explains that the higher levels of autonomic arousal that are associated with threat confrontation are also rewarding to the animal, leading it to prefer to confront stress in this manner over hiding. He also notes that computer-generated imagery for virtual reality is not realistic enough, and that by working with communities of people who are doing crazy things under stress, researchers are able to develop more effective protocols for mitigating stress.
  • 00:15:00 The video discusses the effects of breathing exercises on brain performance, and provides examples of how these exercises can be used to achieve different arousal states. It discusses how breathing exercises can be used to improve co2 tolerance.
  • 00:20:00 Dr. Andrew Huberman discusses how deep breaths can improve brain performance. He recommends doing 20 cycles of breath exercises, even in real time, to improve co2 tolerance.
