Biochemistry of Feelings

Streaming Video - 2005
Rate this:
A landmark study of the facial expressions of native Papua New Guineans suggests that all human beings share six basic emotions. But what happens in the brain to trigger those emotions, and how do emotional responses differ according to age and experience? In this program, Dr. Susan Greenfield considers past attempts to explain emotions in terms of brain areas-and then asserts that the answers actually lie in the function of neurotransmitters. Research indicating that battlefield terror can actually alter the brain's structure is also discussed.
