Dr. Andrew Hill: Unlocking Our Best Self Through Nootropics
What long term positive effects can nootropics give to our busy lives? Can new breakthroughs in cognitive neuroscience help us attain the focused state of attention to meet the demands of our busy modern world?
Andrew Hill, PhD, is a lecturer, scientist, explorer, and also the lead neuroscientist at TruBrain. Today on the show, Dr. Hill and I discuss everything from frontal lobes to biofeedback and more.
Focused Attention With Nootropics
Improving focus and efficiency is the greatest weapon for ambitious people looking to accomplish more. In today’s connected 24/7 world, clocking more hours in the office no longer provides the same unique advantage that it used to. (nootropics for wellness?)
To become more efficient, you first need to understand your equation for productivity. This equation starts with the human brain and how your brainwave states dictate your output. Because we measure brainwaves, we can actually quantify what happens in the brain when someone is in a focused state.

Dr. Hill holds a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from UCLA's Department of Psychology and continues to do research on attention and cognitive performance. He is the Lead Neuroscientist for truBrain, an LA-based mental performance company, as well as the co-founder of Alternatives Addiction Treatment.
He lectures at UCLA, teaching courses in psychology, neuroscience, and gerontology,and has recently opened a peak brain performance center in Los Angeles named the Peak Brain Institute.
From a storied perspective, Dr. Hill’s road to being a neuroscientist has been the ultimate heroes journey: In the past, he’s worked on a farm, in technology sector, in mental health facilities, and many different previous careers that give him a unique understanding of how humans behave and what holds them back, and the science of how brain health can literally change lives.
Currently focused on developing tools and technologies to help everyday citizens enhance their cognitive performance outside of the lab—- as the lead neuroscientist at TruBrain, an LA-based mental performance company, Dr, Hill is the founding director of Alternatives Behavioral health AND the Alternatives Brain Institute. The best of the best in nootropics?
