Social Connections Drive the ‘Upward Spiral’ of Positive Emotions and Health | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

People who experience warmer, more upbeat emotions may have better physical health because they make more social connections, according to a new study published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.

What Emotions Are (and Aren’t)

What Emotions Are (and Aren’t) | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it
OUR senses appear to show us the world the way it truly is, but they are easily deceived. For example, if you listen to a recorded symphony through stereo speakers that are placed exactly right, the orchestra will sound like it’s inside your head. Obviously that isn’t the case.

But suppose you completely trusted your senses. You might find yourself asking well-meaning but preposterous scientific questions like “Where in the brain is the woodwinds section located?” A more reasonable approach is not to ask a where question but a how question: How does the brain construct this experience of hearing the orchestra in your head?

I have just set the stage to dispel a major misconception about emotions. Most people, including many scientists, believe that emotions are distinct, locatable entities inside us — but they’re not. Searching for emotions in this form is as misguided as looking for cerebral clarinets and oboes.

Of course, we experience anger, happiness, surprise and other emotions as clear and identifiable states of being. This seems to imply that each emotion has an underlying property or “essence” in the brain or body. Perhaps an annoying co-worker triggers your “anger neurons,” so your blood pressure rises; you scowl, yell and feel the heat of fury. Or the loss of a loved one triggers your “sadness neurons,” so your stomach aches; you pout, feel despair and cry. Or an alarming news story triggers your “fear neurons,” so your heart races; you freeze and feel a flash of dread.

Such characteristics are thought to be the unique biological “fingerprints” of each emotion. Scientists and technology companies spend enormous amounts of time and money trying to locate these fingerprints. They hope someday to identify your emotions from your facial muscle movements, your body changes and your brain’s electrical signals

At the World's First Empathy Museum, Visitors Walk a Mile in Another Person’s Shoes—Literally | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it
Founders of the first ever empathy museum are calling for a revolution of human relationships. Here's how you can help.


You’ve probably heard the the saying, “Never judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.


These wise words are the inspiration for the world’s first Empathy Museum, which I’m about to launch in London as part of the Totally Thames festival. Forget all those dusty museums with exhibits behind glass cases: this is different. The Empathy Museum invites you to experience and understand what it’s actually like to be another person, so you can look at the world through their eyes.
