What is your emotional fingerprint?
Why are some people so quick to recover from setbacks? Why are some so attuned to others that they seem psychic? Why are some people always up and others always down? In his thirty-­year quest to answer these questions, pioneering neuroscientist Richard J. Davidson discovered that each of us has an Emotional Style, composed of Resilience, Outlook, Social Intuition, Self-­Awareness, Sensitivity to Context, and Attention. Where we fall on these six continuums determines our own “emotional fingerprint.­”
Sharing Dr. Davidson’s fascinating case histories and experiments, The Emotional Life of Your Brain offers a new model for treating conditions like autism and depression as it empowers us all to better understand ourselves—and live more meaningful lives.

Die internationale Wirtschaftspolitik kann man mit Fug und Recht als Debakel bezeichnen. Nur eine wirklich radikale Änderung in der nationalen und in der internationalen wirtschaftspolitischen Ausrichtung kann ein globales Desaster noch verhindern und das Aufkommen extremistischer Parteien stoppen - ein Aufruf weltweit bekannter und anerkannter Ökonomen. Das Wort Krise suggeriert, dass es sich bei den weltweiten Verwerfungen, denen wir seit einiger Zeit ausgesetzt sind, um eine Art Naturereignis handelt, das über uns gekommen ist. Dabei ist das Versagen der politischen Klasse und der sogenannten wirtschaftlichen Eliten Schuld an der Misere, unter der weite Teile der Weltbevölkerung leiden. Gleichzeitig aber verzweifeln überall Menschen daran, dass die Politik der Finanzindustrie keinen Einhalt gebietet. Und so sorgen Banken weiterhin für eine massive Umverteilung zugunsten der Reichen. Fünf der weltweit wichtigsten Ökonomen fordern mit ihrem Manifest eine internationale . . .

¿Por qué la economía mundial sufre graves crisis una y otra vez? ¿Por qué es tan difícil controlar el sistema financiero? ¿Por qué no hemos logrado acabar con el hambre, la miseria y el desempleo en un mundo tan próspero como éste? ¡Actúen ya! es un manifiesto escrito por cinco economistas internacionales que trata éstos y otros temas cruciales de ámbito mundial con distintos enfoques, y que presenta políticas alternativas para salir de la crisis actual.

Das bunte Gefühlsleben unserer grauen Zellen Was hat Neuroplastizität mit unseren Gefühlen zu tun? Richard Davidson ist einer der weltweit führenden Gehirnforscher und beschäftigt sich seit vielen Jahren mit der Frage, wie die Vorgänge im Gehirn unsere Gefühle beeinflussen. Zusammen mit der Wissenschaftsjournalistin Sharon Begley stellt er ein faszinierendes Modell über den Ursprung, die Macht und die Formbarkeit unserer Emotionen vor. Im Zuge seiner Forschungen hat Davidson sechs emotionale Stile analysiert, die spezifische, exakt lokalisierbare neuronale Netze zur Grundlage haben. Diese Stile beschreiben die Art und Weise, wie Menschen auf das Leben reagieren – und bestimmen, ob jemand mitfühlend, positiv gestimmt, ängstlich oder schüchtern ist. Davidsons wichtigste Erkenntnis ist: Aufgrund der Neuroplastizität unseres Gehirns können wir mit Übungen und durch Meditation unsere Gefühle ändern – und damit entscheidend unser Wohlbefinden und unsere Lebensqualität beeinflussen.

Cosa succede nel nostro cervello quando siamo tristi o euforici, arrabbiati o ottimisti, oppure quando abbiamo a che fare con gli altri? Quali sono le strutture cerebrali alla base della vita emotiva? Fino a non molti anni fa la ricerca psicologica e neuroscientifica non era affatto interessata al «cuore», ma solo alla «testa», ossia alle funzioni cognitive. Negli anni Settanta alcuni studiosi intrapresero una serie di ricerche pionieristiche che avrebbero portato alla nascita delle cosiddette «neuroscienze affettive». Oggi Richard Davidson è un protagonista assoluto di questa nuova disciplina, riuscendo a dimostrare l’intuizione che lo aveva folgorato all’inizio degli anni Settanta ad Harvard: ragione e sentimento non sono polarità inconciliabili, e a ciascuna corrispondono zone e funzioni cerebrali specifiche. Su queste basi Davidson ha elaborato la teoria degli Stili Emozionali, sei dimensioni emotive che descrivono la personalità di ognuno. Poiché le emozioni si fondano su . . .
