BrainCraft
Hi! I'm Vanessa Hill, a behavioural scientist and content™️ creator. On BrainCraft I cover self-improvement tips and advice based in psychology and neuroscience. My mission is to bridge the gap between scientific research and your daily well-being. Outside of my regular videos, you can find BrainCraft as a series on PBS, watch my YouTube Originals show Sleeping With Friends, or check out my PBS docu-series Attention Wars. There's so much to watch, I'm honestly not sure why you're still reading this. But since you are, please consider subscribing and supporting my Patreon so I can continue to make educational videos 🧠✨

Many of the people interviewed made valid points, though the documentary offered little in the way of solutions and in my opinion, the ending was alarmist. When I made Attention Wars we wanted it to be information-dense, so this is what I’m adding to the discussion – lots of examples and information of what I consider to me the more disturbing side of social media and psychology. The original Attention Wars series (2018) was produced in association with Screen Australia and PBS. The series was produced by Vanessa Hill and Margie Bryant, written by Bahar Gholipour and edited by Dominique Taylor. Animations by James Hutson.

While melatonin isn’t very effective for treating general insomnia, it IS good for jet lag. Melatonin was found to be effective for jet lag (in people traveling across five or more time zones) by several placebo-controlled trials: https://www.cochrane.org/CD001520/DEPRESSN_melatonin-for-the-prevention-and-treatment-of-jet-lag More information on melatonin: https://www.med.upenn.edu/cbti/assets/user-content/documents/Burgess_UsingBrightLightandMelatonintoReduceJetLag.pdf In general, you should avoid alcohol while you’re trying to adjust to a new time zone. While alcohol can help you fall asleep, it interferes with staying asleep and decreases sleep quality. And not getting restful sleep is only going to make jet lag worse. https://www.who.int/ith/mode_of_travel/jet_lag/en/ Caffeine isn’t necessarily bad, as long as you aren’t drinking it within 4-6 hours of bedtime.

While this is all pretty entertaining, it's not scientific: It’s really, really hard to study body language. To express yourself without words, you mostly use your head and your hands. But many actions of your hands and body are so idiosyncratic that they carry little specific meaning. So, popularly, people prescribing an intention to a movement that, perhaps, had no intention at all. And therein lies the problem: researchers need to encode and decode your movements to study them. If you do A, it could mean B or C. A lot of research is open to interpretation, but this idea of "intention" can be very subjective – especially when our body language can shift due to our age, culture and gender. We can't study something empirically if we're making guesses at what a movement means, or if it means anything at all.

Through an experiment, we explore which type of dizziness would allow you to still complete a very important task, i.e. hitting a piñata.

Some reasons why are more straightforward: perhaps you blurt something out, perhaps people are jerks, but some new research tries to identify the bits of the brain that are responsible for you keeping time in a conversation. The research involves an obscure species of ultrasonic singing mice. Naturally. This episode was written by Bahar Gholipour and Vanessa Hill.

But overthinking isn’t necessarily bad and rumination is just one type of overthinking. Overthinking is an umbrella term for lots of different thought processes – beneficial things like emotional processing, problem solving, mind wandering and then not-so-beneficial things like rumination and worry. This video includes some tips (starting at 3:26) for how to stop rumination or just overthinking in general – I overthink a lot and while it’s not ruminating and may have some problem-solving benefits, I still find it limits my focus.
