If anxiety is in my brain, why is my heart pounding?

I recently read an article about the neuroscience of fear and anxiety, and it was really eye-opening. It’s clear that fear and anxiety are very real emotions that are driven by our brains, and even though we may not be able to control them, we can learn to manage them. It’s important to understand the underlying science behind fear and anxiety so that we can better understand how to cope with them. Knowing more about the neuroscience of fear and anxiety can help us to recognize the signs and symptoms of anxiety, and to develop strategies to better manage it. This article has shed some light on the subject for me, and I’m sure it can do the same for others.
