Science Daily: "What Happens When We Get Angry"

This article reads a little oddly in places—as if it has been translated—but it is interesting because it features two important findings from a recent study at the University of Valencia.

Unlike other “negative emotions,”

1. cortisol levels fall when we get angry
2. we tend to get closer rather than farther away from the thing that makes us angry

A Cambridge University study has shown that low serotonin levels can affect the brain’s response to anger.  See that here.
