Good day to you fellow happy psychonauts! What if a neuroscience concept could help you to generate endogenous happiness all-day-long by hitting your flow state? This is the first of a two part series filmed in Miami, Florida. I speak about hitting your “flow state” through passion, meditation, and understanding a new neuroscience finding called the Default Mode Network. Brain circuit studies will continue to unveil these primal human abilities. It is an exciting future!

About Cody Rall

Physician & Brain Researcher Cody developed a healthy respect for the natural world as a youth raised in Alaska. In his teenage years, he would spend weeks in the Alaskan wilderness with his father, hunting moose and other big-game animals. Cody later developed a preference to photograph wildlife and study the world through science. As an undergraduate, he worked with model organisms in a molecular genetics laboratory, experimenting with DNA expression. At the same time, Cody was learning about health and fitness by competing in bodybuilding shows. Through modifying his own body with exercise and diet, Cody developed first- hand, invaluable insight towards human physiology. He then attended medical school in Chicago, IL to combine his passion for science, health and people. During his medical school studies, Cody found new passion in the brain sciences.

    TM and DMN: A team of brain researchers led by Dr. Fred Travis conducted a three-month randomized control EEG study on college students at American University and found they could more highly activate the default mode network, a suggested natural “ground state” of the brain, during their practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique. The study was published in a special issue of Cognitive Processing dedicated to the Neuroscience of Meditation and Consciousness, Volume 11, Number 1, February, 2010. http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2010-03/muom-tma030410.php. TM is unique among meditation practices in that it is effortless and allows the mind to transcend, go beyond thinking, and experience its inherent nature, a unified field of unlimited energy, intelligence, and happiness.
