Sharing this skate + neuroscience interview originally published on June 14, 2021. One of my fave interviews from JENKEM Magazine. 'Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist and tenured professor at Stanford that grew up skating San Francisco's Embarcadero. Andrew’s research touches on fear responses, as well as sleep and dream states and how they relate to learning. We called him up to share some groundbreaking findings that we and professional skateboarder Karl Watson felt other skaters could greatly benefit from.
