Thought for the week: The Heart Brain Connection
The Heart Math Institute based in the USA carries out scientific research on the psycho physiology of stress, emotions, and the interactions between the heart and brain. Their research demonstrates that not only does the heart respond to the brain, but the brain continuously responds to the heart.
During times of stress and negative emotions, when the heart rhythm pattern is erratic and disordered, the corresponding pattern of neural signals traveling from the heart to the brain inhibits higher cognitive function. This limits our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason, and make effective decisions. This helps explain why we may often act impulsively and unwisely when we’re under stress.
When we experience uplifting emotions such as appreciation, joy, care, and love; our heart rhythm pattern becomes highly ordered, looking like a smooth, harmonious wave. This is called a coherent heart rhythm pattern.
Scientists now understand that the heart not only responds to emotion, but that the signals generated by its rhythmic activity actually play a major part in determining the quality of our emotional experience from moment to moment.
In summary, the heart sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart!
