This is a long but fascinating episode that takes a deep dive into how technology is influencing human movement. Mark Mastalir is the CMO for Halo Neuroscience - a technology that is literally influencing how the brain works. Zach Schonbrun is a writer who covers the business of sports and the author of the Performance Cortex which explains how science is changing the way that athletes train and compete.
This special two-interview episode begins with Mastalir explaining how Halo is using a technology called transcranial stimulation to stimulate the motor cortex in a way that can help the user improve and refine coordinated movement patterns. The second interview features Schonbrun discussing what he learned about Halo and other types of technology that are currently being studied in an effort to improve human performance.
