Pam Peeke

Series Premiere—Dr. Pamela Peeke on
''Your Brain's Reward Center: Hacked by a Cupcake''

How our brain develops unhealthy ''addictive'' habits—and how to reverse them.

Physician, scientist, and edutainer Dr. Pam Peeke* explores how the most sophisticated machine in the universe—the human brain—can develop unhealthy patterns, including food addictions, that can lead to a continuous cycle of poor decisions. Offering solutions, Dr. Peeke shows us how we can harness the emerging science of epigenetics to make lifestyle changes that can actually transform our own DNA. She is a proponent of the practice of Transcendental Meditation to promote better health and positive behaviors.
