Tracking and The Brain: Joost Plattel

Joost Plattel studies chemistry and loves experiments. He discovered while running experiments on himself that the simple act of tracking had a profound affect on how his brain functions. In this talk, Fitting Mental ModelsJoost shares some of those discoveries.

During the last three years of tracking his food, activity, and productivity, Joost noticed his brain functioning differently. For example, when he is actively tracking his food, his brain retains what he ate all week. When he isn’t tracking, he doesn’t have the same recall.
