Types of Stress : Life Care
In today’s article we will discuss about some amazing & fun facts about our brain, so let’s start our Brain Facts, Do you Know that ?
TIP No. 1 – Drink more water and try to keep your brain hydrated, that means dehydration, even in small amounts, may have severe negative impact.
Whenever you are in a tough situation, your brain have to make a deal with it and the deal is – Fear, Fight or Flight also known as 3F (controlled by an hormone). Either you will feel fear or suppose situation are like a fight then your brain will decide that can you fight with them or not.
If your brain thinks it can then suddenly there will hormonal changes happens, your blood circulation will increase, heart beat increases and we starts taking deep breath so that we can take as more as oxygen or your brain will triggers that no i can’t fight with’em then we just ran.
Tip No. 2 – Always hug and kiss your loved ones or your crush.
The brain is a complex organ that researchers are still trying to decode. But experts have identified the limbic system as one of the main parts of the brain that controls basic emotions.
As technology evolves and scientists get a better glimpse into the human mind, we’ll likely learn more about the origins of more complex emotions.
“They say that the world was built for two/ Only worth living if somebody is loving you.” Dr. Mick
Love, like sex, is a rewarding and pleasurable experience our brains are wired to seek and enjoy . Love and lust are neurobiologically complementary and correlated, which makes evolutionary sense since they are both species-survival mechanisms. We copulate to have offspring and we fall in love to better care for them.
The frontal cortex is the center of executive functioning, judgement, and logic, all of which get thrown overboard in love. This is due to decreased activation in this brain area, which translates to a “suspension in judgement or a relaxation of judgemental criteria by which we judge other people” (Zeki 2007). We seek for people to love us in spite of our shortcomings; turns out they literally don’t see them! Or at least they judge them less harshly because their frontal cortex is drugged by infatuation. The neuroscience proves it, love is illogical.
In the beginning……. When you have butterflies in your stomach from meeting someone new, dopamine levels surge. All that dopamine gives you an extra thrill when you see your newly beloved, creating an intense craving to be around them. A neurotrophin called nerve growth factor accompanies all this euphoria and increases your emotional dependency. Lastly, serotonin levels drop, which cranks up the dial for desire. This chemical cocktail is why lovestruck couples can be so infatuated with each other. Studies show that the chemical concentrations brewing inside the brains of newly minted lovebirds are similar to those who suffer from OCD.
The longer a relationship lasts, the less dopamine is released. But that doesn’t mean the bond is dying. In fact, a molecule called CRF (corticotrophin-releasing factor) helps keep couples together. CRF is released whenever couples are separated; . In men, a molecule called vasopressin also increases. Vasopressin is linked to territorial behavior, and it may explain why, in healthy relationships, men feel loyal and protective of their partners (while in unhealthy relationships, they’re possessive). Vasopressin also promotes fidelity. When scientists inhibited vasopressin receptors in prairie voles, the usually faithful animals became rampant cheaters.
