AN-013 - MINDSET 5/9 | ‘Negativity Bias’ with SHARON BOTT

February 24, 2016

"... al of our brains - no matter who we are - react more strongly to negative events. The asymmetric response to positive and negative events is rooted in the brain's processing of emotion. Negative events cause greater self-referential activity in the medial prefrontal cortex and aslo increased activity in the insula, which is responsible for noticing visceral sensations. Lastly, they also engage more of an emotional response in the amygdala and hippocampus". 

Yes ... but what does it all mean? And is it helpful to know? 

The book mentioned and the quote above is from 'The Upward Spiral' by Alex Korb. Amazon.co.uk link is below:
