The Functional Neuroanatomy of Pleasure and Happiness

The Functional Neuroanatomy of Pleasure and Happiness
Morten L. Kringelbach, D.Phil. and Kent C. Berridge, Ph.D.

While it remains unclear how pleasure and happiness are exactly linked, it may be safe to say at least that the pathological lack of pleasure, in anhedonia or dysphoria, amounts to a formidable obstacle to happiness. Exciting new insights have been gained while studying sensory pleasures, but many further challenges remain such as to understand how the brain networks underlying fundamental pleasure relate to higher pleasures such as music, dance, play, and flow to contribute to happiness.
