Why we are so Happy or Sad?


We have both Pleasure centre and Pain centre in the brain. When there is over stress, the pleasure centre will be in operative so that the normal enjoyable moments will not give any pleasure. In to our brain, millions of messages are passing  daily, of which some are happy messages and others, are sad messages. Brains cells communicate each other through the chemical messengers produced by them to make the body prepared to cope up with the situations. If the messages are happy, then the Endorphin system responsible for the happy mood will be elicited. The sad messages are also carried by the brain messengers which causes mood alteration and  loss feeling. Most nerve centers in the brain are capable of receiving both happy and sad messengers and as long as their input is balanced, everything runs normally.If a person is capable of using these happy messengers wisely, he feels that stress is challenging, fun and enjoyable.Don’t be anxious about the future, and don’t be too much ambitious . A person living in  the real world  will have pastpresent and future. But a person under stress will not have these . We know past, but we don’t know future. So it is better to live in present.

Happy Messengers


Millions of messages are passing into and out of the brain daily, of which some are happy messages and other, are sad messages. Brains cells communicate each other through the chemical messengers produced by them to make the body to cope up with the situations. If the messages are happy, then the Endorphin system responsible for the happy mood will be elicited.

Skin Response Meter


This is my circuit Skin Response Meter published in Electronics For You magazine June 2009 issue. This circuit tells you that whether your body is relaxed or not. It exploits the skin’s galvanic property to measure the stress level of the body. Even though the circuit do not measures the stress level precisely, it can be used as an indicator to know the stress level. Many relaxation techniques are now in practice to keep the body in relaxed condition. The circuit described here is useful to monitor the stress level before and after practicing a relaxation exercise. Full circuit in PDF

Galvanic Skin Response


Stress is a physiological condition in which the body becomes excited to face an emergency situation. A number of physiological changes including increase in heart rate, breathing rate etc. occurs during a high stress state. There is a relationship between Stress and the Electrical conductivity of the skin. This is known as Galvanic Skin Response or GSR. Skin conducts electric current like a Resistor used in electronic circuits.
