Ep. #44 Neuromodulation, Neuroplasticity, & Peak Performance Training w/ Toby Pasman

Toby Pasman is the founder of Roscoe’s Wetsuit Neuro and host of the Roscoe’s Wetsuit Neuro Podcast. He is a neurophysiology researcher with a Master’s of Psychology from Lynn University and is board-certified in QEEG Brain Mapping and EEG Neurofeedback. Toby enjoys paddle boarding along the intercoastal, biking through the surrounding islands of Miami, and engaging in deep, intellectual conversations.

In this episode, Toby and I discuss some of the latest neuromodulation technologies and how they can be used for healing and for cognitive optimization – training to reach peak cognitive performance. The field of neuroscience is an amazing blossoming field of study, and out of it have come various technologies, techniques, and strategies that people can use to understand their neurophysiology (and how it affects and interacts with the rest of their physiology) and utilize these technologies to treat disorders and optimize performance. Some of the neuromodulation technologies include QEEG Brain Mapping, EEG Neurofeedback, Transcranial Stimulation, Audio-Visual Entrainment, and Brain Photobiomodulation. 

“The discovery of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to rewire itself throughout our entire lifetime, and recent breakthroughs in neurotechnology have enabled us to now measure and modulate the electrical and chemical activity of neurons (brain cells) to improve focus, sharpen attention, improve mood, deepen sleep, and decrease neural inflammation.”  – Toby Pasman

Toby Pasman

Toby Pasman is a neurophysiology researcher who graduated from the University of Oregon in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and completed his Master’s of Psychology through Lynn University in 2021. He worked on the Emotions and Neuroplasticity Project at the Brain Development Lab at his university, learning how emotions relate to changes in key brain networks.

Toby got curious about whether he could hack his own brain and began experimenting with neurotechnology including neurofeedback and neurostimulation to work on his own social anxiety. He noticed great improvements in his verbal fluency and ability to stay relaxed in social situations.

Toby began working at a peak performance facility outside of Seattle, Washington, training high profile CEOs, professional athletes, and Hollywood actors, who were looking to maximize their brain performance, recording QEEG brain maps and utilizing neurofeedback and neurostimulation technology.

Toby has since worked in the substance abuse and mental health fields, utilizing QEEG brain mapping, neurofeedback, neurostimulation, and PEMF therapy to treat patients clinically. He trained under Dr. Nicholas Dogris, CEO of Neurofield Neurotherapy, learning extensively about applying various forms of neurostimulation to enhance brain performance.

Toby is currently training to become an accredited human potential coach through the Human Potential Institute.

Ep. #33 Sustainable High Level Productivity w/ Brent Huras

Brent Huras is a productivity coach. He coaches his clients to reclaim their power, their wellness, their responsibility, their sense of purpose, and to reach their full potential. When we talk about and think about productivity, we normally think about getting as much stuff done as possible. When we don’t do as much as we think we should be doing, we accuse ourselves of being lazy, unproductive, and a failure. However, Brent teaches his clients that trying to force yourself to do more and be more isn’t going to work in the long run. What we need to do is to learn more about ourselves and why we do the things we do, what limiting beliefs we have, and ultimately learning to accept who we are before we can start making changes. In order to improve our lives, we also need to learn to cultivate self-discipline, focus, and clarity of perception. 

In Brent’s words, “What I do is coach people into sustainable, high-level productivity. This basically means being in a place where:

a) You know what your major aspirations are,

b) You have a strategy to make them happen,

c) You’re taking daily action on the strategy, and

d) You’re enjoying yourself as you go about all of it.

When I work with people I’m helping them cultivate all 4 of these major aspects as much as possible so that they can start operating from this state of productivity that I’m talking about. It makes life juicy, and it creates this really nice feeling of being *on track*.”

Brent Huras

Hi, I’m Brent. The foremost focus of my life is humanity’s evolution. I think it’s safe to say now that our entire population is in a bit of a crunch-period right now. We’re beset by political, economic, and environmental concerns that need to be brought under control as quickly as possible. As it appears to me: every time a single human being starts to reclaim their power, their wellness, their responsibility, their sense of purpose, the scales are tipped in the right direction.

I Help People Reach Their Potential. I myself have emerged out of a deep depression wherein I felt utterly hopeless, powerless. That was in 2015, and since then I’ve been focusing on reaching out to as many people as I can to coach them into greater and greater wellness.

I Learn About Who You Are, And Get You Out Of Your Own Way. In my work with clients, I operate mostly from intuition. I’m gifted at listening and quickly locating the source of a person’s limiting beliefs or learned powerlessness. I have mapped out the process of cultivating the self-discipline, focus, and clarity that are required to get our lives in order and functioning better than ever before. As a result my clients get fitter, lose weight, curb their addictions, earn more money, and start projects that they’ve been unable to begin up until now.
