Andrew Huberman is an American neuroscientist and tenured associate professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine who has made contributions to the fields of brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration and repair. He has been credited with coining the term “Non-Sleep Deep Rest”, which he earlier referred to as Yoga Nidra. Andrew has been criticized for making pseudoscientific claims about the dietary supplements and multivitamins sold by his podcast sponsors.

Research and Publications
Huberman predominantly studies and does experiments in the field of neural regeneration and brain control over conscious vision. In 2016, he discovered and published a paper on how to use of non-invasive methods such as visual stimulation can enhance the regeneration of damaged retinal neurons, which can help in partial recovery from blindness.
In 2018, Andrew along with his team published a report on the discovery of two new mammalian brain circuits: one that promotes fear and paralysis, and another that promotes “courageous”/confrontational reaction, to visually-evoked threats. Lately, in 2021 he released a report on “Divergent outputs of the ventral lateral geniculate nucleus mediates visually evoked defensive behaviors”.
In 2021, Huberman launched the Huberman Lab podcast with the goal of translating neuroscience into tools that can be applied in everyday life. It is a top podcast on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. He was originally inspired to start the podcast after his appearance on the Lex Fridman Podcast. Soon after, he started his newletter called “Neural Network Newsletter” which more than 100,000 people have joined. Through it, people get the latest insights in neuroscience, health, and science-related tools.
