Bella Swan Was Right
So, in Twilight--you've heard of this book right?--you'll hear the narrator Bella Swan constantly blurt out stuff like: It physically pained me to be away from Edward. And at this point some of you may have either rolled your eyes at her whiny-infatuated talk or skimmed the pages for more sparkly vampire action. I, however, have a different view now on Bella's statement after having read more psychology books and taken more classes on the matter.
Studies show that when a person is socially isolated, like kicked out of a group or has suffered a breakup, their cingulate cortex activates. What's interesting is that the cingulate cortex is the part of your brain that activates when you are experiencing physical pain, too.
Alright. That's all I have for today. Time to get working on Novel #2.
