Technology has truly revolutionized our lives in the modern era. We have technology that allows us to organize our lives more efficiently, speak with people across the planet, help a failing heart beat, photograph the depths of the human body inwardly and explore the cosmos outwardly, and much more. But can technology help you perform better? Our guest today, Dr. Daniel Chao, is CEO of a company with a technology that claims to do just that by stimulating the motor cortex of the brain. Their initial testing with Olympians, top level athletes and professional sports teams has shown impressive results. As a yogi and yoga teacher, I’m also very interested in the tech’s potential with asana (the physical postures of yoga) and yoga therapy. We discuss neuroplasticity, potential health risks, the future of technology and human performance, and much more! Join us as we explore how neuroscience and technology might help you move smarter, run faster, and stretch further!
Dr. Daniel Chao, who has an MD and MS in Neuroscience from Stanford University, is the CEO and Co-Founder of Halo Neuroscience, a brain stimulation company based in San Francisco, CA.
