My experience as an acupuncturist and necessarily my bias is that the mind and body are interconnected. The psychological moods and learning abilities are reflected in the ways the body works. While I tend to think of this energetically, seeing energy as flowing all through the body and creating this interconnection, Mark over at Mark’s Daily Apple has an interesting post that comes from a completely different scientific standpoint.
The post is more about cognition than emotional issues (where I tend to find myself studying). However, it’s fascinating what many of these studies have turned up. Now, as I have no spatial relation concept and struggled through physics, I’m going to go swing my arms a bit. Yeah–that was in one of his cited studies!
