The Emotional Life of Your Brain with Richie Davidson

In February 2012, Richie Davidson joined the Dalai Lama Center and the UBC Institute for Mental Health for "The Emotional Life of Your Brain". He has discovered that personality is composed of six basic emotional "styles," including resilience, self-awareness, and attention.

Our emotional fingerprint results from where on the continuum of each style we fall. He explains the brain circuits that underlie each style in order to give us a new model of the emotional brain, one that will even go so far as to affect the way we treat conditions like autism and depression.
