A short article in Discover magazine reports that researchers are looking for a scientific explanation for emotions, as a secondary sensory response.
"Hugo Critchley of University College London looked for signs that emotional awareness is tied to heartbeat perception in the brain. If physical reactions trigger emotion, he reasoned, people who are highly attuned to bodily processes ['viscerally aware'] should also be unusually sensitive."
I love this. "I'm not oversensitive, I'm just viscerally aware" is the new "I'm not fat, I'm just big-boned."
