how can thoughts cause pleasure?
« on: 23/05/2010 02:15:34 »
We know  how sensual stimulation of various kinds can trigger chemicals in the brain to give feelings of pleasure. how can a thought or an idea produce pleasurable sensations and feelings of excitement etc.? Are different parts of the brain stimulated when we enjoy a thought? And what is actually going on when we are thinking? How is it that my thinking about this topic can result in the action of my putting words that represent the thought into this post?
