What Is Our Biggest Motivator? | @Sid Warrier | Varun Duggi | Take a Pause | Part 1/3

Weirdly enough, Neuroscience is a trending topic these days. But with trends come oversimplifications. So, to clear the air we’re chatting with an expert!

In Part 1 of this conversation, Dr Siddharth Warrier, a Neurologist, talks to Varun about the inner working of the human brain

While the world has become a place of abundance, our brain still functions on scarcity. Dr Sid breaks down our brain’s evolution into a simple analogy that will make you wish you could go back to school to relearn science!

Dr Sid Warrier is a Neurologist with over five years of experience in the field of Neurology. On his YouTube channel, he explores science, mental health, and human behaviour in an attempt to bring conversations about Neuroscience into the mainstream.
