Emotion and the brain

The limbic system is a complex set of brain structures just beneath the medial temporal lobe of the cerebrum. It includes the hypothalamus, the hippocampus, the amygdala, and several other nearby areas. This part of the brain supports emotion, behaviour, motivation and memory. Amygdalal is the key emotion center. There are 6 basic emotinos including happiness, anger, sadness, fear, surprise, and disgust. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanning and functional MRI studies have shown that some emotions are more likely to be associated with different regions of limbic system activity than other emotions. Happiness is related to the right frontal cortex, the precuneus, the left amygdala, and the left insula. Fear is linked to the bilateral amygdala, the hypothalamus and areas of the left frontal cortex. Sadness is associated with increased activity of the right occipital lobe, the left insula, the left thalamus the amygdala and the hippocampus which is strongly linked with memory, and it makes sense that awareness of certain memories is associated with feeling sad. Disgust is associated with activation and connections between the left amygdala, the left inferior frontal cortex, and the insular cortex. Anger is associated with activation of the right hippocampus, the amygdala, both sides of the prefrontal cortex and the insular cortex. Surprise is related to the bilateral inferior frontal gyrus and the bilateral hippocampus. Alteration of the limbic system activities can cause emotion changes. Acupuncture can help rebalance the brain activities to release emotion.
