The Miracle of Reward System

Lying deep inside the middle of the brain, just under the folds of the Cortex, is a collection of older integrated structures collectively referred to as the Reward System. The critical structures of the Reward System are part of our Limbic System or “Emotional Brain.” This session will focus on the anatomy and function of the Reward System with direct implications for our overall health. While it is true that the Reward System is involved with addiction, it is also critical to our most powerful healing emotions and feelings.
