Feelings are a funny thing. Love and heartache both happen inside your head, but they're felt in very different places. On the flipside, excitement and fear are two very different emotions, but they feel nearly identical. To make things even more complicated, feelings are subjective — it's hard to know if other people feel things the same way you do. That's why this new study from a team of Finnish researchers is so fascinating: They've mapped emotions to where most people feel them in their own bodies. It turns out that most of us feel our emotions in similar places.
