Dr. Joe was one of the most popular speakers in the documentary What the Bleep do We Know?, with his fireside chat about constructing one’s day in a positive way. But, his knowledge of the brain goes far beyond those short clips. Joe explains, in this interview, how our brain chemicals work to keep us embroiled in old habits and patterns, and what it takes to overcome those patterns. This is extremely useful information for anyone with a brain. One of the dangers he explains is the proliferation of violent video games in our society.
Joe draws from the experiences that caused him to write his book, Evolve Your Brain – The Science of Changing Your Mind, and gets into what actually happens in your brain to create behavior.
