In this episode, Tania attempts to induce the nocebo effect -- placebo's evil twin -- on Brian. They explore placebo research (in areas ranging from pain to creativity), why it works, and how to put it to good use! It turns out "mind over matter" really does matter.
P.S. Because we mentioned drug use in this episode, we also wanted to mention the SAMHSA National Helpline: 1-800-662-4357. Get free and confidential substance use treatment and information.
