Fight, Flight, or Freeze: Animal Study Connects Fear Behavior, Rhythmic Breathing, Brain Smell Centers

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

There’s increasing physiological evidence connecting breathing patterns with the brain regions that control mood and emotion. Now researchers have added neurons associated with the olfactory system to the connection between behavior and breathing. Connecting patterns in these interactions may help explain why practices such as meditation and yoga that rely on rhythmic breathing can help people overcome anxiety-based illnesses.
