Thank you for joining us for our talk the science of stress, calm and sleep with Professor Andrew Huberman.
My name is Emily Caspersen, and I'm Senior Manager at the Stanford Alumni Association. Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist and associate professor in the Department of neurobiology and ophthalmology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. His labs work focuses on the influence of vision and respiration on internal states, such as stress, focus, sleep, and creativity. They're also working on tools and clinical trials to halt and reverse vision loss and human suffering from glaucoma, and other visual system diseases.
Professor Huberman teaches neuroanatomy neurodevelopment, regeneration and plasticity to medical students, graduates and undergraduates at Stanford. Welcome, Professor Huberman.
Thank you so much for having me today. And for everyone for being here. Today, I'm going to be talking to all of you about the science of stress, calm, and sleep. And I think these are very important topics that not just in 2020, but long before 2020. And going forward, are extremely important for a variety of reasons. They are fundamental to our mental and physical health. And they are at the core of a lot of suffering when these three things are not managed properly. The good news is that science has provided a lot of insights into how we can manage stress, manage calm, as funny as that may sound, and better control our sleep.
