Social and Emotional Development - www.heartmath.org  Restoring Emotional Balance for Mental Clarity and Optimal Living Scientists have recently discovered that 60 to 65% of heart cells are actually neural cells, not muscle cells as once believed. Neurocardiologists, like J. Andrew Armour, MD., PhD., have found that the heart’s neural cells are identical to the neural cells found in the brain. They operate using the same connections and have the same neurotransmitters that are found in the brain. Meaning, our hearts literally have thoughts! Educating the whole person: HeartMath.org understands the link between the heart and the brain; between learning and emotions. Their self-regulation techniques promote emotional balance, academic excellence and resilience.
