Brain Health Resources VI—Top Brain Health Experts and the Best Podcasts for Learning From Them!

May 17, 2019


One of the most gratifying aspects to my health journey has been finding so much quality information online. Yes, it all has to be taken with an attitude of healthy skepticism, and yes Google Scholar is often a much better source than regular Google.


But I have found a number of leading experts, doctors and researchers, who are bringing the latest health breakthroughs to light.


As I’ve said before (link to video) we each have to choose which experiments to engage in, and one person’s "emerging science" maybe someone else’s "pseudo-science", but these leaders (in no particular order) are among those I am turning to as I look to be better informed on what is to come.


For this post, I focus on Podcasts, which offer a great way to hear directly from researchers. But these hosts have as much good information to offer as their guests (and as you will see below are often guests on one another episodes).
