Why we have emotions

  • LIMBIC system – instincts, emotions, ambition, memory.
  • NEOCORTEX (new brain) – the seat of knowledge, logic, reason, and language.
  • The PREFRONTAL cortex is associated with higher functions, individuality, self-awareness, and creativity.

Emotions help us to mobilize, to act, to make decisions, to avoid dangers, to survive and to prosper, to understand others.
