The Psychology and Neuroscience of Happiness

Video   Jan 31, 2018 | You Tube Video From The Royal Institution

 

We know a fair amount about depression, fear, disgust and anxiety, but positive emotions have so far remained mysterious. 

In this video from The Royal Institution Vin Walsh and a panel of experts discuss the psychology and the neuroscience of happiness.

Vin Walsh is a Professor of Human Brain Research at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL.

Julia Christensen is a Newton International Postdoctoral Research Fellow at City University, specialising in the neural underpinnings of emotional expertise.

Morten Kringelbach is a professor of neuroscience at the universities of Oxford and Aarhus, Denmark. His research uses pleasures such as food, sex, drugs and music to understand pleasure and well-being in the human brain.

Joe Gladstone is an Assistant Professor at University College London. Named one of the top 30 people under 30 in Finance by Forbes Magazine, Joe's research draws from both Behavioural Economics and Consumer Psychology to understand how we can help people to improve their financial decisions.

The World's First Bioelectronic Medicine

Video

Northwestern University and Washington University School of Medicine researchers have developed the first example of a bioelectronic medicine: an implantable, biodegradable wireless device that speeds nerve regeneration and improves healing of a damaged nerve. Their device delivered pulses of electricity to damaged nerves in rats after a surgical repair process, accelerating the regrowth of nerves and enhancing the recovery of muscle strength and control. The device is the size of a dime and the thickness of a sheet of paper and dissolves in the body after about two weeks.
