一项对人类大脑里一个细小部位的最新研究报告帮我们更近一步地理解了人类情绪变化与心血管疾病之间的联系。这项研究说减轻压力不仅可以改善人们的心理健康状态,还有助于降低心脏疾病的发生机率。请听以下 报道。

The study lead by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School measured the effect of stress on 300 people over nearly four years.

Scientists use scans to monitor a tiny area of the brain called the amygdala which processes emotions such as fear and anger, they found for the first time in studying humans that higher levels of activities in the amygdala were linked with greater activities in bone marrow and inflammations in the arteries.

They suggested the amygdala tells bone marrow to produce extra white blood cells, which cause arteries to develop blockages and to become inflamed.
