How Hormones Influences Your Emotions

Sadness from heartache, elation at finding a long-lost friend, anxiety before a job interview -- you might like to think you're completely in control of what you feel and that you understand what causes those feelings. But your brain can be sneaky sometimes.

Our brain is a complex network that processes vast quantities of information every second. Part of the brain's information-processing network includes neurons, or cells that transmit signals throughout the brain. Neurons send signals through neurotransmitters, which are chemicals some release and others receive. These chemicals essentially let the parts of the brain communicate with each other.

The three most commonly studied neurotransmitters are #dopamine #serotonin and #norepinephrine

Dopamine is related to experiences of pleasure and the reward-learning process. In other words, when you do something good, you're rewarded with dopamine and gain a pleasurable, happy feeling. This teaches your brain to want to do it again and again.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter associated with memory and learning. Researchers believe it plays a part in the regeneration of brain cells, which has been linked to easing depression. An imbalance in serotonin levels results in an increase in anger, anxiety, depression and panic. Norepinephrine helps moderate your mood by controlling stress and anxiety. 

When One Side of the Brain Takes Over

Scientists have actually seen firsthand what happens when the system of emotional balance provided by the brain's hemispheres breaks down. They've found that people who have had brain damage in the left hemisphere of the brain are at a higher risk for suicide because they're overwhelmed with negativity, while people who have had damage to the right hemisphere can be overly optimistic because they have trouble identifying negative emotions 

Antidepressants and Your Brain

Because neurotransmitters have such an impact on your emotions, tweaking the amounts of certain brain chemicals can help relieve symptoms of #depression

That's how most antidepressants work -- they change how much of a certain brain chemical your brain gets. Some do this by reducing the reuptake (re-absorption into the neuron it was released from) of serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine or a combination of these chemicals, which raises their levels in your brain and improves your mood

To know your strong part of the Brain: surprising benefits...

Humans ‪#‎brains‬ differentiate by size, quantity neurons and specific brain's structure to the extend that current technology (like deep brain scans/tomography) can identify individual brain preferences, for example, - to ‪#‎music‬ or to ‪#‎painting‬ ; or person can be better ‪#‎pilot‬ ‪#‎sniper‬ ‪#‎sprinter‬ (in case of military or sport interests).... (up to 30-40 times difference in ‪#‎neurons‬ quantities can segregate / separate person with born ability to specific activities )

Scientifically proven that some people can have in their brain structure specific parts /zones that other don't have it... and these can be ‪#‎advantage‬ or ‪#‎disadvantage‬ to intellectual, emotional or physical abilities...

Our brain is firmly predetermined - we inherit from our ‪#‎parents‬ and we could not change it much... we either have those potential abilities in our brain (that we can later develop and build up on it if we are lucky in choosing profession) or not....

Would you prefer to know from your childhood where is your talents are and develop it most...??

Based on ‪#‎neurobiology‬ - it's more chances to be a good painter than a genius musician ... it's because ‪#‎brain‬ structure responsible for visualization is less "sofisticated" (person with visualisation talent need min 4 such zones vs well developed 17 structural parts for musician talent).... and so on...

So the ‪#‎technology‬ is almost here, but less known to broad public because of moral controversy of the issue, like: possibility of human ‪#‎segregation‬ / sorting by inherited skills may lead to ‪#‎artificial‬ vs ‪#‎natural‬ selection / segregation...

I took my wife here for oysters because she loves them, she was less than impressed. She said oysters should taste like the sea and these were tasteless. I had a crabcake sandwich which was just ok. The presentation was the best part of the meal, for the prices.. I expected better food.

Myself and the Mrs. stopped in to this resturant during a run around at Pembroke Mall area. We wanted something to eat and we wanted to go someplace we haven't been. We both love Indian food and we heard that Saffron's was the place to go in this area. We enjoyed the location, the decor, the mood was very calm, and relaxing. We had a seat by the window and enjoyed every minute of it!

This resturant used to go by another name, but still just as good!! My family and I love this restaurant and it's location (close to home). But the service is great and very friendly. I recommend the guacamole and mango before your meal, you will not be disappointed. Never dissatisfied with this place and I always leave happy and full!

Cozy little restaurant back in the cut of Portsmouth. It took us a few minutes to get there from Norfolk, but when we arrived we were relieved and pleased. The service was OUTSTANDING! The wine and bar were excellent, we recommend the cheese platter to start. We had our appetizers, entree' and drinks in under an hour no rush no muss. Very homey and pleasant experience overall! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

We go here whenever we cannot watch our Steelers play on regular TV. I heard aboutu the pizza being the best in the area but I had to try it for myself. I was GREAT! Presentation was fantastic but the service was a bit on the bad side. At times it seems like your waiter/waitress forgot you existed, but then again this place gets very busy during the football season. I recommend the wings and the Azalea Special pizza. We stuff ourselves with these delights each and everytime we go!

I love Chipotle's food! For this location I was so glad when it arrived!! I used to go to Richmond just to get a burrito and I stay here in Norfolk!! The place is always clean and neat, and I am always greeted with a smile. I walked in once in uniform and I had to wait for my burrito's to be made because they were out of barbacoa. It took a while but it was worth it once it was done, I got my entire order FREE for my wait! How cool is that!?! I've always loved this place and I highly recommend all burrito lovers of the like to partake!!
