Take a Walk on the Weird Side.

Often, our curiosity pulls us into covering subjects that are interesting to brain aficionados, but don’t fit neatly into any one of our "normal" categories — things like futurism, bioethics and emotional intelligence.

Otherwise, scroll down and enjoy...

technology, prosthetics, biohacking, nootropics, smart drugs

“Grinders” take their stylistic queues from piercing shops, tattoo parlors and custom auto mechanics — combining skills in electrical circuitry and biology to leap past “wearable” technology straight into integrated doodads like an LED compass that lives in your hand, or under-the-skin magnets (which some claim allow them to “feel” magnetic fields after a few months of brain plasticity and practice).

porn, dopamine, porn addiction, brain

The fallout from porn addiction goes beyond sexual dysfunction — way beyond. The brain’s dopamine system is the major motivational system for everything we do. Desensitizing it with surging arousal from porn can cause the brain to lower its overall sensitivity in all areas of life.

Anthony Sims and Gary Demerjian are probably the two leading practicioners of the treatment of neurological conditions with mouth-worn orthodontic appliances — based on soothing irritated nerves in the jaw to alleviate symptoms throughout the body.

Jesse speaks with futurist and author Calum Chase about his book Surviving AI, and the increasing impacts of artificial intelligence on business, society, and humanity itself.

Join Jesse and the founders of Brain.fm and explore the science behind audio brainwave training and the potential for its development.

Dr. Richard Cytowic joins Jesse this week to demystify Synesthesia and shed some light on this incredible quirk of human evolution.

Join Jesse and Prof. Vincent Clark for a spirited discussion about the emerging field of electroceuticals and magnetoceuticals.

Join Jesse & attorney Lawrence Walters for an in-depth look at the gray market for pharmaceuticals – the regulations and risks involved to health and privacy.

To say “people love coffee” is a little like saying “people love sex.” In fact, going by the numbers — two billion cups of coffee drunk per day vs. slightly fewer fornications — people may like coffee more than sex.

Jesse and a small cadre of DIY enthusiasts attempt to alter their consciousness through a process known in psychology circles as “Holotropic Breathwork.”
