Gratitude and your Brain
As reported in Psychology Today, studies show that certain areas of the brain are involved in experiencing and expressing gratitude. Brain scans have been done of people who were given a task that stimulates the expression of gratitude. The results show lasting changes in the prefrontal cortex that increase sensitivity to future gratitude experiences.
Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
