Exercise for Your Brain’s Health: Interview with Prof John J. Ratey, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School

24 Oct

By Lucy Parkinson, VP of Investor Research, LSN

Continuing LSN’s series of video interviews with life science thought leaders, Dennis Ford recently sat down with John J. Ratey, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.  John’s career has focused on the role exercise can play in treating psychiatric conditions such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, addiction, and stress.  In this 12-minute interview, John talks to Dennis about how he began to focus on this connection, even as an ever greater proportion of the population adopt sedentary lifestyles.  John explores the possibility of ‘rewilding’ society to incorporate more movement and human connections to improve our mental health, and the tantalizing possibility that ‘AI coaches’ could help us reach this goal.
