Riding the Whirlwind

“In emotional turmoil, the upward influences of sub­cortical emotional circuits on the higher reaches of the brain are stronger than top­down controls. Although humans can strengthen and empower the downward controls through emotional education and self-mastery, few can ride the whirlwind of unbridled emotions with great skill.”     

–Jaak Panksepp (Estonian-born American Psychologist, Neuroscientist and Baily Endowed Chair of Animal Well Being Science for the Department of Veterinary and Comparative Anatomy, Pharmacology, and Physiology at Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, 1943-)   

“Affective Neuroscience: The Foundations of Human and Animal Emotions (Series in Affective Science)” (Jaak Panksepp)
