So is neuroscience psychology just all in our heads? You betcha! And that's a good thing. Thanks to tests such as brain imaging, we now know that there is indeed support in our brains for the basis of neuroscience psychology. In Discover Magazine, writer Jim Robbins shows how the front portion of our brain (the prefrontal cortex) drives how we respond to life [source: Robbins]. So, when we're faced with adversity and still maintain a positive outlook, we have our prefrontal cortexes to thank.
Recent research takes this prefrontal cortex business one step deeper. As it turns out, our responses to the world around us are also driven by which side of our prefrontal cortex does the most work. If correct, one side of our prefrontal cortex is responsible for positive emotions; the other is responsible for negative. So just how positive or down-trodden we are may be linked to which side of our prefrontal cortex steps up to the plate and does its job.
