Anxiety Off Switch

There are a lot of emotions that we all wish we had a little more control over — anxiety might be one that one that we might actually be able to turn off someday.

A recent study at Stanford located a part of the brain that appears to control anxiety. Researchers found that if they stimulated this region in the brain of a mouse, the mouse would feel less anxious and act in a more bold manner, exploring regions of its cage it was afraid of before.

Nearly 20% of Americans suffer from anxiety, and yet only a third of them are treated for it. This research could lead to breakthroughs in treating these people.

We’re super anxious to see where this leads! LOL!
