Neuronal Emotions

More and more psychiatrists who get involved in neurophysiology express their desire to explore the neuronal limbic core in more fundamental depth. Especially for those (and for JR, a very good friend especially) the editors of Nature Neuroscience, using their telepathic ability managed to assemble a special edition to attend to their wishes.
Individual quality of life depends on the ability to experience emotions appropriately and to regulate them in response to stressful events. In addition, depression and anxiety are a substantial public health burden. This special focus contains four reviews and a perspective from leaders in the field, who discuss how the brain regulates emotions, how this regulation becomes impaired by disorders of emotion and which therapies may be effective in treating these disorders.
