Video: Richard Davidson on “The Emotional Life of Your Brain”

In this trailer for his new book, The Emotional Life of Your Brain, neuroscientist Richie Davidson — whose work studying meditation and the brain at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds is the subject of “Taking the Measure of Mind,” found in our current issue — discusses his team’s research on meditation and how we might adapt and respond to life’s emotional “slings and arrows.” He also lists what he calls the “Six Emotional Styles”; do you see yourself here?
