What excites you the most about your job?
As the CEO of Heart­Math, I love our mis­sion of expand­ing con­scious­ness and our daily work to help peo­ple build resilience and emo­tional coherence.

Please tell us about your inter­est in applied brain sci­ence. What areas are you most inter­ested in? What moti­vated you to pur­sue work in your field?
I am par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in how to improve people’s lives via the neu­ro­science of stress and emotions.

What is one impor­tant thing you are work­ing on now, and where can peo­ple learn more about it? 
We are work­ing on ways to make our Heart Rate Vari­abil­ity sen­sors more acces­si­ble and use­ful to every­one who wants to enhance his or her brain fitness.

What are 1–2 key things you’d like every per­son to under­stand regard­ing his/ her own brain and mind, that you think is com­monly mis­rep­re­sented or not addressed in the pop­u­lar media? 
That the brain is not only about cog­ni­tion. The heart’s input to the brain is crit­i­cal too for cog­ni­tive health and opti­mal performance.

Where do you see clear “low-hanging fruit” to enhance behav­ioral and brain health based on neu­ro­science and inno­va­tion? 
Part­ner­ing with activ­ity mon­i­tors to make neu­ro­feed­back more consumer-friendly with games and other activ­i­ties. This is becom­ing eas­ier as we seem more train­ing on the Cloud.

What sur­prised you the most at the 2013 Sharp­Brains Vir­tual Sum­mit? 
The care and pas­sion of Alvaro Fer­nan­dez and the Sharp­Brains folks to bring every­one together. It did inspire me.

Finally, what do YOU do to stay sharp? 
I use the emWave and Inner Bal­ance HRV coher­ence feed­back to reset through the day and stay clear and sharp.

2013 SharpBrains Summit—This con­ver­sa­tion is part of the inter­view series with Speak­ers and Par­tic­i­pants in the 2013 Sharp­Brains Vir­tual Sum­mit (Sep­tem­ber 19-20th). Pre­vi­ous inter­views include:
