neuroendoEmotions <=> thoughts <=> actions.

As Michelangelo foretold in " Creation of Adam", all gods and demons that ever existed are within us as a possibilities, desires, and ways to escape.   Within the dark red vault of our skull we see human and god-like forms reaching out, as thoughts escape into actions - with legs extending into our brainstem (B) and a fist is pushing from our hypothalamus into the pituitary stalk (P). Above the pituitary we have thoughts, ideas, impulses, and neurotransmitters. Below we have hormones. Between is the realm of neuroendocrinology - the neurosecretory cells which turn emotions into the releasing factors for the pituitary hormones. ( Polman et al. N Engl J Med. 2006. 354: 899-910. p 500)
