This week we're diving into the physiology, biology and neurological side of investing and general performance with Louisa Nicola a Neuroscientist, Neurophysiologist and founder of Neuro Athletics. We learn a little bit about Louisa’s life, how she went from being an elite olympic level athlete to being a neuroscientist, neurophysiologist, and founding Neuro Athletics. What some of the misconceptions about neurology, how our “brain endurance” help us in making sharp decisions, how we can use dopamine so we can achieve our goals, and last, but not least, the importance of sleep in our everyday life and how we can improve it.
