Neuroplasticity is a 2 phase process: it is initiated by alert, focused states, but consolidated during sleep. --- @HubermanLab


BRAIN CHANGE REQUIRES REPEATED BOUTS OF FOCUS & ALERTNESS FOLLOWED BY BOUTS OF SLEEP & NSDR. - During childhood, learning can occur more passively but as we approach adulthood, somewhere around age 25, the mechanisms of neuroplasticity shift. - Learning to toggle back-and-forth between focus and rest is the best data supported way to drive neuroplasticity. This to learn and improve at anything, we all need to learn to master focus and rest and how to transition between the two. Non-sleep deep rest can help you get better at sleeping. There’s also evidence that it can enhance neuroplasticity. You can find NSDR protocols at zero cost on YouTube. - For more information on neuroplasticity focus and sleep, including tools for getting better at all of them, check out the Huberman Lab Podcast episode on mastering sleep and the episode on focus, at Everything is time stamped so you can navigate quickly to the topic of interest. - Meanwhile, put your questions in the comments section below this post. I’ll host an Instagram live later this week and I’ll answer those questions first.
