Depression, fear, borderline personality disorder, bipolar, schizophrenia, episode

It appears that there are currently no specific episodes from the that comprehensively cover all the conditions like depression, fear, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia in a single episode. However, the Huberman Lab podcast does cover various aspects of mental health and related neuroscience topics in individual episodes.

Please let me know if you would like me to search for episodes that touch on any one of these conditions individually, or if there is a particular aspect of these conditions you are interested in, so I can assist you further.


Find podcast episodes about depression.

Here are episodes from the that discuss depression:

  1. Understanding & Conquering Depression | Huberman Lab Podcast #34
    Published on August 23, 2021, this episode delves into mood disorders, dopamine and addiction, the biology of depression, SSRIs, hormonal influences, genetic predispositions, tools for positive mood, inflammation's role in depression, and potential treatments like exercise, nutrition, and psychedelic therapy.

  2. Ketamine: Benefits and Risks for Depression, PTSD & Neuroplasticity | Huberman Lab Podcast
    This episode discusses the clinical and recreational uses of ketamine, especially focusing on its potential for treating depression, insights into neuroplasticity, and immediate impacts on mood and therapy methods.

  3. The Science & Treatment of Bipolar Disorder | Huberman Lab Podcast #82
    Although primarily centered on bipolar disorder, this episode from July 25, 2022, includes discussions on depression, since depression is one of the mood states experienced in bipolar disorder. It also addresses treatments like lithium therapy and the use of omega-3s.

These episodes can provide valuable insights into the causes, biology, and potential treatments for depression.


Find information about the neuroscience of fear.


The neuroscience of fear is explained in detail by in the , particularly in the episode titled "Erasing Fears & Traumas Based on the Modern Neuroscience of Fear." Here are key insights about the neural circuits and biology of fear:

  • The amygdala, an almond-shaped structure on both sides of the brain, is part of the threat reflex which involves physiological responses such as quickening of the heart rate, hypervigilance, and accessing energy for movement and thought 1.
  • The fear system is generalizable and not designed for us to be afraid of any one thing. The amygdala integrates information from memory and sensory systems and is essential for the threat response 2.
  • Fear is an emotion that includes physiological responses and cognitive components such as thoughts and memories. Trauma is when this fear becomes maladaptive and triggers a stress response in the absence of an actual threat 3.

    Biology of Fear

    Andrew explains the biology of fear and how the amygdala is essential for the threat response. The threat reflex involves quickening of heart rate, hypervigilance, and increased ability to access energy stores for movement and thought.

    Erasing Fears & Traumas Based on the Modern Neuroscience of Fear | Huberman Lab Podcast #49
  • The fear system is wired for one trial learning to negative experiences, creating intense fear, memories, and physiological responses that can persist 4.
  • Approaches to dealing with fear and PTSD, such as deliberate self-directed stress and re-exposure therapy in a supportive environment, are discussed by Huberman 5.
  • Neuroplasticity and long-term potentiation are mechanisms at the cellular level involved in strengthening connections between neurons to create the fear response and how it can be learned in association with certain events 6.
  • The amygdala sends outputs to different brain areas, triggering responses such as fight, flight, or freeze, with the periaqueductal gray being central to the freeze response 7.

Further insights about fear and trauma, including practical tools for confronting these emotions, can be discovered by listening to the full episode.
