The truth lies somewhere between these two extremes. The purpose of my investigation into the scientific evidence is to explain the contradictions and assistance in the transition from the absurd to a clearer understanding of the role played by our emotions - and emotional intelligence - in health and disease. Mental activity of the body: how emotions affect health In 1974, the discovery made at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Rochester, made to alter the biological organism card: psychologist Robert Ader discovered that the immune system, as well as the brain, can learn. His conclusion is shocked; before in medicine dominated by the belief that only the brain and central nervous system is able to respond to changes in the experience of their behavioral reactions. Opening Adair forced to do research that has appeared in countless ways of communication of the nervous and immune systems - the biological pathways that are not shared and are closely linked mind, emotions and body.
