Richard Davidson and The Emotional Life of Your Brain (video)

Richard Davidson lists what he calls the "Six Emotional Styles"; do you see yourself here?

Davidson—whose work studying meditation and the brain at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds has been discussed here on Mindful.org—talks about his book, The Emotional Life of Your Brain, co-authored with Sharon Begley. He also goes into some detail about his team's research on meditation and how we might adapt and respond to life's emotional "slings and arrows."
