When you feel happy or angry where do you feel it in your body? Have you ever wondered if other people feel emotions in the same parts of their body as you do?
Well a new study carried out by Finnish researchers has investigated just that in 700 participants and collated all the results. They created coloured body maps for six different basic emotions including anger, fear, surprise and happiness as well as more complex emotions such as love and depression.
When you take a look at the body maps you can see that happiness activates the whole body right down to the feet; the only emotion to do so. Why not take a look at the article to find out the details.
