This podcast episode is all about the brain because the guest is a master clinician, certified neuropsychiatrist, and brain scientist named Dr. David Feifel.

Feifel founded the Kadima Neuropsychiatry Institute in San Diego after having been a professor of psychiatry at UC San Diego for more than 20 years. He developed the world’s first ketamine infusion program for psychiatric disorders and then integrated that practice into the UCSD’s Center for Advanced Treatments.

In this episode, we talk about how the brain actually works, using ketamine in psychiatry, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and much more.

You wanted more brain hackers, you got more brain hackers. Enjoy the show!
