The Happy Brain 
is the podcast that answers readers’ questions about
dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, endorphin, and cortisol.
Listen at HappyBrainPodcast.com

To ask your question,

join us live!

We record every Sunday in my Zoom meeting room at 10 am Pacific Time (1pm Eastern, 5pm GMT) (re-starting October 7) If you can’t make the regular time, we’ll make individual arrangements – write me at: Loretta-at-Innermammalinstitute.org.

You get to ask me anything you want, and after I answer, you get to respond however you want.

What kind of question?
1. You don’t have to reveal anything personal – I respect your boundaries.
2. You don’t have to be a neuroscience geek – authentic questions are more interesting than academic hairsplitting.
3. All questions are appreciated because they help me explain the inner mammal more effectively in the future. The best way to understand is to listen to few episodes.
