My guest for Episode 48 is Joseph LeDoux, PhD, Professor of Neural Science, Psychology, Psychiatry, and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at New York University; Director Emotional Brain Institutel. His awards and accolades are too many to note here, but suffice to say, he is accomplished. Joe has written several books, including The Emotional Brain and Anxious. His latest (2019) book is called The Deep History of Ourselves: The Four-Billion-Year Story of How We Got Conscious Brains. While he notes that brain injury is not his area of expertise, Joseph LeDoux has done extensive research on the brain, notably how emotions effect the brain and what emotions may be. Check out the Joe Rogan Experience, Episode #1344 to hear more. Joe is also a musician in the band, The Amygdaloids, duo in So We Are, as well as solo projects.
