The amygdalae and emotions

We most likely all want to know how to better manage our emotions. According to recent studies, it is possible to have an impact on our amygdalae, these nuclei located deep in the brain responsible for our reaction to stress.

Up until now, technology (MRI) has allowed us to analyze the impact we have on our amygdalae. It is reliable but not overly accessible.

More recently, researchers have shown the benefits of cerebral training via electroencelography. It is a more accessible method that allows for better comprehension of the mechanisms involved in managing stress.

In the context of a particular study, it was shown that to learn how to control the stress response generated by the amygdalae could have a positive effect on management of emotions.

John Kristal, editor of Biological Psychiatry, stipulates that we recognize biofeedback and meditation as being most likely capable of managing stress.

So, if standing upright represents a form of stress, is it fair to think that if we optimize this strategy, we activate the frontal cortex and the behavior of the muscular system?

When one considers that such a thing is possible, is there a better moment than now to create balance?
