Gratitude and your Brain

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.
