About this Episode

Colleen Wohlrab, Lab Manager at the leading center for float research, the Laureate Institute for Brain Research, talks to us in an exclusive interview! Hear how Dr. Justin Feinstein and his team have structured their research program and what their participants experience at each stage.

Colleen shares what is being measured in their participants and how they’re being measured before the float, during the float, and later in an FMRI machine. Their preliminary results reveal exciting changes in the brain, and Colleen tells us how they’re gearing up to apply these findings to future participant groups, such as sufferers of Anorexia and Anxiety. Finally, does the body really absorb Magnesium in the float tank? LIBR is getting the research underway!
