What’s Hiding In The Unconscious Mind

Here’s an NPR Fresh Air interview with neuroscientist and author David Eagleman, whose book Incognito has recently been published by Pantheon. Most interesting to me, from the NPR article:

“Your brain doesn’t like to keep secrets. Studies at the University of Texas, Austin, have shown that writing down secrets in a journal or telling a doctor your secrets actually decreases the level of stress hormones in your body. Keeping a secret, meanwhile, does the opposite. Your brain also doesn’t like stress hormones. So when you have a secret to tell, the part of your brain that wants to tell the secret is constantly fighting with the part of your brain that wants to keep the information hidden.”
