Welcome to JUSTAPEDIA®
Unleashing the power of collective wisdom.

To demonstrate the importance of maintaining neutrality and objectivity in encyclopedic resources, we have reserved a separate section of the main page for hosting the Feature Showcase, where we will display the lead of an article in Wikipedia, where Justapedia articles originated, versus the equivalent lead in a pragmatically rewritten Justapedia article.

Introduction to Justapedia

Justapedia is an open and freely accessible online encyclopedia that is being developed and maintained by volunteers through open collaboration on a MediaWiki based editing platform. The platform and tools to edit are hosted and operated by the Justapedia Foundation, a tax deductible section 501(c)(3) charitable organization for educational purposes. Justapedia® is the registered trademark of the Justapedia Foundation (JPF), with the origins of our articles attributed to the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikipedia and its many volunteers, some of whom are also Justapedians. The imported corpus of Justapedia and its subsequent contents are licensed under CC-BY-SA and GFDL licenses. Further attribution is provided in a link to the origins in each article's respective footer.

With the understanding that Justapedia's content was forked from the vast corpus of Wikipedia, which includes over 6.5 million articles, and numerous templates, projects, categories, and other freely licensed content, we face an equally large task in adapting and refining or completely changing this content to comply with Justapedia's five fundamental principles and core content policies. Many of the Wikipedia articles that have received widespread criticism from academics and the mainstream media have been forked to Justapedia, where they will be rewritten by volunteers who (a) share our mission and goals of preserving and protecting history, (b) want to restore the spirit of neutrality and objectivity, and (c) believe in the power of diverse perspectives. Happy editing!

Feature Showcase

Justapedia's Feature Showcase presents a unique educational tool, offering visitors a direct comparison between Justapedia's article leads and those of Wikipedia. This side-by-side layout is more than a mere comparison—it is a statement of purpose, underscoring Justapedia's commitment to uphold neutrality and objectivity in the information sphere. The showcase illuminates the stark differences between an article written with a focus on unbiased information and one that may have been influenced by political agendas. By doing so, Justapedia not only highlights the potential pitfalls of informational bias but also demonstrates, through example, the core principles of its mission to provide content that embodies impartiality and factual integrity. This educational feature serves as a learning resource for discerning readers and a testament to Justapedia's dedication to unswerving neutrality in a landscape often muddied by politicization.

Andrew D. Huberman (born September 26, 1975 in Palo Alto, California) is an American neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine where he has made contributions to brain development, brain plasticity, neural regeneration and repair fields. Much of his work has been focused on the visual system, including the mechanisms controlling light-mediated activation of the circadian and autonomic arousal centers in the brain, as well as brain control over conscious vision or sight.[1][2] Huberman has been credited with coining the term "Non-Sleep Deep Rest" (NSDR), referring to practices that place the brain and body into shallow sleep to accelerate neuroplasticity and help offset mental and physical fatigue.[3][4][5]

In 2021, Huberman launched the Huberman Lab podcast, which quickly gained notability in the world of science communication. On his podcast, spanning several hours per episode, Huberman delves into various research topics, both within and outside his expertise, providing listeners with valuable insights into the state of scientific exploration. By 2023, the podcast was ranked as the 6th most popular podcast in the United States on Spotify platforms.[6]


Huberman graduated from Henry M. Gunn High School in 1993. He received a B.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1998, an M.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2000, and a PhD in neuroscience from the University of California, Davis, in 2004.[7] ... read more

Andrew David Huberman (born September 26, 1975) is an American podcaster and neuroscientist. He is an associate professor of neurobiology and ophthalmology at Stanford University School of Medicine and a partner of the sports and nutrition company Momentous, with which he offers branded dietary supplements.[10] He is best known for hosting the Huberman Lab podcast, which he started in 2021.

Early life and education

Huberman was born in Palo Alto, California to physicist Bernado Huberman and an author mother.[11][12]

Huberman received a B.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1998, an M.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2000, and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from the University of California, Davis, in 2004.[11][13] He completed his postdoctoral training at Stanford under Ben Barres between 2006 and 2011.[14]

Academic career

From 2011 to 2015, Huberman was an assistant professor of neurobiology and neuroscience at University of California, San Diego. In 2016, Huberman moved to Stanford University.[citation needed]

With David Spiegel, Huberman has carried out research on cortisol and anxiety-based depression.[13] Huberman has led work investigating the regeneration of eye tissue in mice, which may have a future application in studying optical nerve regeneration in humans.[15][16]
