People have been obsessing and hearing about dopamine and its role in human behavior for years. You may think of it as the feel-good happy hormone, or you may associate it with addiction, love, lust and sex. As our lives convert over to a totally digital experience that is with us everywhere we are in the form of a cell phone, dopamine detox has even started gaining in popularity. Dr. Andrew Huberman from the Huberman Lab is back again to unpack some of the more surprising discoveries and uses of dopamine. He cleverly relates dopamine to being a biological currency that has a role to play in human desire for more. Dopamine is the catalyst pushing humanity forward exploring things like cryptocurrency and pushing our limitations and what is possible, but is all of that for the sake of pleasure and feeling good? Dr. Huberman breaks down the eternal balance of pain and pleasure, arousal and relaxation and gives you the insight you need to start regulating your body’s dopamine release. If you thought dopamine was all about feeling good, Dr. Huberman is about to reveal why it’s more about what motivates you in the pursuit of something greater.

So it's the state of wanting that is in and of itself, the pleasurable act.” [22:37] “It doesn't matter if it's Bitcoin or aetherium, it doesn't matter if it's putting rockets on other planets, it doesn't matter if it's building the first automobile, it's the same currency.” [25:27] “Dopamine itself is not the reward. It's the build up to the reward, and the reward has more of a kind of opioid bliss like property,” [29:51] “The more pain you experience, the more dopamine you can achieve. If you get back on the avenue of pursuit.” [30:58] “I would say addiction is a progressive narrowing of the things that bring you pleasure, and I don't like to comment too much on enlightenment, [...] but a good life is a progressive expansion of the things that bring you pleasure, and even better is a good life is a progressive expansion of the things that bring you pleasure and includes pleasure through motivation and hard work. “ [32:55] “If you think about most of the growth in life comes from these rigidly externally imposed schedules and we hate them. But they are where we learn restraint” [52:42] Follow Andrew Huberman: Website: 🤍hubermanlab.com/ YouTube: 🤍🤍youtube.com/andrewhubermanlab Twitter: 🤍twitter.com/hubermanlab Instagram: 🤍🤍instagram.com/hubermanlab/ Facebook: 🤍🤍facebook.com/hubermanlab Podcast: 🤍hubermanlab.com/
Not all of our parents- all of the male parents.
Me right now consuming YouTube content because I can't not have some kind of stimulus 😬
xLORsLlcT48&t=51m08s 51:08 Alcohol abuse, dopamine and poor sleep quality --> looks like a bad loop-cycle.
Seeking is the reward. Succinct. Condensed. Distilled.
Im too lazy to watch 1 hour of this.. sorry
I like that you let Andrew talk a lot without interjecting.
okay just took a cold shower after watching this
I don’t agree that addiction is narrowing interests. I constantly find new things I get addicted to such as musical instruments. Also it sounds like he’s saying to always expect the worst so when it’s not that bad dopamine goes up
Everything I ever learned from the last 4 years of pain is accurately summed up in this 1 hour clip.
I tried explaining what ur saying, but without using science and how the process happens, and the only way I could explain to others is through religion n spirituality.
Trying to explain the interpretation of time to be interpreted properly is nearly impossible. But it also enhanced my “linguistic” ability
They tend to only catch what I’m spitting when we share a lot of beliefs.
Thank You Andrew, xLORsLlcT48&t=41m48s 41:48
This is a very narrow, get rich quick (Fraudulent), view of the reward response system (Cognitive Development Masters, and have worked with at risk kids most of my life). The human brain is capable of rewards in almost any manner imaginable. Unfortunately, most of our reward response are set before the age of two, and housing instability (Cortisol Levels) is the primary indicator of poor childhood outcomes, addiction, heart disease, diabetes, whereas, homeownership, no matter the size, is the single best indicator for positive child and life outcomes. The rest is making the best of what you got. Being realistic and honest with yourself. You can have a fulfilling life as a professional bugger picker, as long as you don't let this backwards world based upon superficialities, that devalues all life, determine your well-being...
if you’re looking to love life then love life. but, understand that life is the path to death and so, you must love the path.
i love his idea to challenge himself to not allowing phone use during odd hours
xLORsLlcT48&t=6m23s 6:23 Yeah Baby dont fucking stop
When did Tom Segura get so smart?
tldw cliffs plz
This is the best thing i have EVER listened to!!! JUST WOW!!!! EXTREMLY HELPFUL!!!
What he educates us at min xLORsLlcT48&t=15m00s 15:00 is really awesome because it explains something that I used to experience quite often especially as a child and now I get it. Hence why I don't really plan an outcome but I've learned to go with the flow that will take me to an outcome. All because when I plan or expect, the thought is so exciting and amazing yet when it doesn't go as I imagined, I feel absolutely shattered. Thanks for explaining all of this in medical terminology. Fascinating

If you are low on dopamine and time feels slow then why when you scroll on tiktok or Instagram for example you can't believe how much time has gone by. Samething when you were a kid and time feels to go by so fast when you're playing a friends house.
