The study involved 20 volunteers who were frightened when they were shown pictures of faces are creepy. At that time their bodies are connected to a heart monitor to respond.
"Our results suggest that if we look at the face of daunting when the heart is pumping, then we see the face of the feeling tense and filled with fear, but if we see the same faces but when the heart is relaxed conditions then we will have no fear at all , "Garfinkel said.
"We have identified an important mechanism whereby the heart and brain are connected with each other.'s Heart can change our emotions and reduce fear.'s Shape to those in treatment of stress or fear to face anything," said Garfinkel further.
