    The man who can’t feel fear
    :
    Thanks to the “Free Solo” documentary that everyone’s talking about, Alex Honnold has become a paramount symbol of fearlessness. He is history’s greatest rock climber in the free solo style, meaning he ascends without a rope or protective equipment of any kind. In this profile, scientists take a close look at Honnold’s brain to determine what occurs in his amygdala, the “fear center” of the brain. If you find yourself experiencing pangs of anxiety in everyday life, this one will amaze you.

    “It’s better over time if you can put yourself in a situation where you experience some fear, but you overcome it, and you do it again and again and again.”
