Happy Thanksgiving in the Brain
We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Gratitude and thanksgiving are whole brain activities that involve deep-seated emotional areas, areas associated with context-sensitive morality, and abstract conceptual understanding.
Thankfulness to God involves multisensory areas, imagery, and regions associated with feelings of justice, peace, happiness, and unconditional love.
Our family has very much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving - bless you all!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week.
