Heart & Emotions

Postby raghda » Wed Oct 03, 2007 1:54 am

so... Is there a relation between heart & emotion? we think the heart is the centre of emotions(love,sadness,happiness,...) however the brain is responsible for all sensation and feelings .

moods can affect heartrate, the neurotransmitters and hormones released are responsible.

Has anybody noticed that when your heart gets broken it causes physical pain in the chest? Any biological explanation?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Can't say I've ever noticed a pain in my chest from a broken heart...

when your heart is broken everything aches, not just your chest..

I guess it's different for everyone.

It also depend on what the emotion is. and its strength as sometimes mild emotions cause increase in blood pressure ,however sever emotions cause decrease in it
Wanting more is the nature of the soul ,mind, heart, and senses

No,

it's purely psychosomatic.

Unless of course you are experiencing the onset of a myocardial infarction as a result of the stress

Biologically, happiness must be the feeling of being a step better for our propagation. Otherwise, human can not survive long.

Unhappiness is almost just the counterpart of the happiness.

These conclusions can be drawn simply by reasoning with the knowledge of a high school student who has learnt the biology and history.

I think that emotion is many chemistry reactions on the brain.
