Andrew D. Huberman (born in 1975 in Palo Alto, California) is an American neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He has made numerous important contributions to the fields of brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration and repair. A large amount of that work focused on the visual system, including the mechanisms that control light-mediated activation of the circadian and autonomic arousal centers in the brain, as well as the brain control over conscious vision or sight.
Huberman was awarded the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award (2013), and a Biomedical Scholar Award from the Pew Charitable Trusts. He is the recipient of the 2017 ARVO Cogan Award for making major contributions to the fields of vision science and efforts to regenerate the visual system and cure blindness.
He is currently or has served on as an elected member of The National Institutes of Health Grants Advisory Panel "Sensory, Perceptual, and Cognitive Processes", and the Editorial Boards for Current Biology, The Journal of Neuroscience, The Journal of Comparative Neurology, Current Opinion in Neurobiology, Cell Reports, and Neural Development. He is a member of Faculty 1000.
Huberman graduated from Henry M. Gunn High School in 1993. He received a B.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1998, an M.A. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000, and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of California, Davis in 2004.
From 1998–2000, Huberman worked in the laboratory of Irving Zucker and with Marc Breedlove, at University of California, Berkeley, as part of a team that defined how early androgen exposure impacts development, and he performed the first experiments defining the structure of binocular visual pathways that set the circadian clock in the hypothalamus. From 2000-2004, working as a Ph.D. student in the laboratory of Barbara Chapman at the Center for Neuroscience at the University of California, Davis, he discovered that neural activity and axon guidance molecules work in concert to ensure proper wiring of binocular maps in the brain. Huberman was a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Fellow researcher in the laboratory of Ben A. Barres from 2005-2010.
Dr. Huberman was an Assistant Professor of Neurobiology and Neuroscience at University of California, San Diego from 2011–2015, where his group pioneered the use of genetic tools for the study of the visual system function, development and disease. Among the Huberman Lab's discoveries was the finding that specific types of retinal neurons degenerate early in Glaucoma a common blinding disease that depletes sight in > 70 million people worldwide and for which there is currently no cure.
After moving to Stanford in 2016, Huberman discovered and published the use of non-invasive methods such as visual stimulation can enhance regeneration of damaged retinal neurons, leading to partial recovery from blindness, especially when the stimulation is paired with specific forms of gene therapy. The work was covered extensively in the popular press, including TIME Magazine and Scientific American and is part of the National Eye Institute’s Audacious Goals Initiative to restore vision to the blind. The Huberman Lab extended those findings to develop a human clinical trial using virtual reality technology to stimulate regeneration and plasticity of damaged retinal and other visual system neurons.
In 2017, the Huberman Lab created a state-of-the-art virtual reality platform for probing the neural mechanisms underlying pathologic fear and anxiety. That work involved collecting 360-degree video of common fear inducing scenarios such as heights and claustrophobia as well as atypical fear inducing situations such as swimming with Great White Sharks. The Huberman VR platform is aimed at making discoveries that hopefully will lead to developing new tools for humans to adjust their state in order to promote adaptive coping with stress.
In May, 2018, Huberman Laboratory published an article in the journal Nature reporting their discovery of two new mammalian brain circuits: one that promotes fear and paralysis, and another that promotes “courageous”/confrontational reaction, to visually-evoked threats. That discovery prompted the now ongoing exploration of how these brain regions may be involved in humans suffering from anxiety-related disorders such as phobias and generalized anxiety.
In 2020, Huberman Lab initiated a collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. David Spiegel, M.D. in the Stanford Department of Psychiatry, to systematically study how particular patterns of respiration (i.e., breathing/breathwork) and the visual system influence the Autonomic Nervous System, stress, and other brain states, including sleep.
Starting in 2019, Dr. Huberman initiated a series of short, daily Neuroscience Education posts to Instagram, in order to share exciting discoveries in the field as they relate to human health, development, and disease.
Dr. Huberman has been a guest on numerous podcasts discussing neuroscience including The Lex Fridman Podcast, The Rich Roll Podcast and The Joe Rogan Experience.

List of Huberman Lab Episodes
|Dec 20, 2020||0||Welcome to the Huberman Lab Podcast||Welcome to the Huberman Lab Podcast, a new podcast from Dr. Andrew Huberman.|
|Jan 4, 2021||1||How Your Brain Works & Changes||Today’s episode provides an introduction to how the nervous system works to create sensations, perceptions, emotions, thoughts and behaviors, as well as how we can change our nervous system— a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity. The information sets the stage for all Huberman Lab Podcast episodes that follow by covering neurons, synapses, brain chemicals and the rhythms that control our ability to focus, learn and sleep… and more.|
|Jan 11, 2021||2||Master Your Sleep & Be More Alert When Awake||Today's episode provides a host of information on what makes us sleepy, sleep soundly, and feel awake and alert. It covers a broad range of tools for anyone wishing to improve their sleep and wakeful state.|
|Jan 18, 2021||3||Using Science to Optimize Sleep, Learning & Metabolism||“Office Hours” — In this episode I answer your most commonly asked questions about science-supported tools for accessing more alertness, better learning, and quality sleep. I also cover when to exercise, time meals, and how to systematically vary your temperature to achieve specific effects on your nervous system.|
|Jan 25, 2021||4||Find Your "Temperature Minimum" to Defeat Jetlag, Shift Work & Sleeplessness||In this episode I discuss a simple and reliable measurement called your "temperature minimum" that you can use to rapidly adjust to new times zones when traveling, and to offset the bad effects of nocturnal shift work. I also discuss tools for adjusting sleep and waking rhythms in babies, teens, new parents and the elderly.|
|Jan 31, 2021||5||Understanding and Using Dreams to Learn and to Forget||This episode is all about the two major kinds of dreams and the sorts of learning and unlearning they are used for. I discuss REM-associated dreams that control emotional learning and their similarity to various trauma treatments such as ketamine and EMDR. I also discuss Non-REM dreams and their role in motor learning and learning of detailed, non-emotionally-laden information. I relate this to science-backed tools for accessing more of the types of sleep and learning people may want.|
|Feb 8, 2021||6||How to Focus to Change Your Brain||This episode introduces neuroplasticity- which is how our brain and nervous system learns and acquires new capabilities. I describe the differences between childhood and adult neuroplasticity, the chemicals involved and how anyone can increase their rate and depth of learning by leveraging the science of focus. I describe specific tools for increasing focus and learning. The next two episodes will cover the ideal protocols for specific types of learning and how to make learning new information more reflexive.|
|Feb 15, 2021||7||How to Learn Faster by Using Failures, Movement & Balance||In this episode I discuss how we can use specific types of behavior to change our brain, both for sake of learning the movements themselves and for allowing us to learn non-movement based information as well. I describe the key role that errors plays in triggering our brains to change and how the vestibular (balance) system can activate and amplify neuroplasticity. As always, I cover science, and science-based practical tools.|
