The Relationship Between Head and Heart

The neurons in your brain function like an intricate fabric of all your experiences. Neurons fire and new pathways are formed with every life event.

Interpersonal neurobiology is focused on the triangle of human experience. The three sides of the triangle are mind, brain, and relationships. The theory behind this technique describes how the brain and the mind change over time in the context of your personal relationships. Having this understanding can help you make better sense of your feelings.
