How to use your brain to create strong relationships at home, at work and in your social life.
Do you find it difficult to 'click' with colleagues, neighbours, family, or romantic partners? Loneliness has become an epidemic, but according to Dr. Amy Banks, former instructor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, the key to achieving more satisfying relationships is to strengthen the neural pathways in our brains that encourage closeness and connection.CALMNESS is a result of a well-toned vagus nerve, which in turn helps temper the sympathetic nervous system. ACCEPTEDNESS comes from a well-tuned dorsal anterior cingulate cortex. EMOTIONAL RESONANCE occurs when the mirror neuron system is properly functioning. ENERGY comes from a dopamine reward system that is connected to healthy relationships.This groundbreaking book gives us the tools we need to strengthen these four neural pathways, enhance our ability to connect with others and heal the neural damage that disconnection can cause.
