UCSF professor Adam Gazzaley is a pioneer in the realm of experiential medicine as he’s getting a video game approved by the FDA for ADHD treatment. He’s a co-founder of Akili Interactive and the chief scientist at JAZZ Venture partners, where he’s on the bleeding edge of the latest immersive and interactive technologies, integrating biometric feedback, and helping to create a whole new class of digital drugs through video games. I had a chance to catch up with Gazzaley briefly at the XTech Conference in 2017 where we talk about his book The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World, the Glass Brain project to be able to see inside of your brain in real-time through an immersive EEG, the foundational principles of neuroplasticity, and how far we might be able to push the potential of neuroplasticity with immersive technologies.
