Ways Your Brain and Feelings Influence Each Other

Scroll to explore this learning path.
Playlist Description

The human brain is a remarkable bit of hardware. It helps us to interpret the world around us, regulates our bodies, keeps track of our memories, maintains and makes sense of our senses, and much more. One of its most important responsibilities is to drive our emotions, creating and leading a lot of the hormonal and electrical impulses that make us think and feel certain ways.

When you’re upset about something and your mother tells you to snap out of it because it’s all in your head, she’s half right. A lot of your emotions certainly start in your head, but the interaction between our brains and our feelings is a great deal more complex than simple cause and effect. In some ways, they’re partners in crime, working together to make us feel like we’re capable of anything. In other instances, their relationship can potentially be problematic. Check out this playlist to discover how your brain and your feelings deeply influence one another.
