Heart is full of blood also it is full of feelings. Blood as we know the elixir of life after water . It ischemical( biological) substance , and there are a lot of chemical reactions to purify blood
Can we say that feelings are the same? for physical feelings like touch , this is controlled throughnervous system. There are chemical materials in nerve endings which control these feelings.But emotional feelings like fear, anger , love ,etc

Normal & abnormal

Ancient Egyptians six thousands years ago recognized depression and is one of the most ancient and common located it in the heart as shown in Eber's papyrus.

The Emotional Brain

you are walking through the woods,and you see a coiled shape lying across you path.Instantly--before

you even think ''a snake!' --you brain begins to respond fearfully.Fear is an ancient emotionthat is involved in a number of mental disorders, say neuroscientist Joseph leDoux,Ph.D.,of New York University. His research and that of other scientist ,reported at the 24th Mathilde Solowey lecture in the Neurosciences at the National Institutes of Health on May 8,1997,has shown that the fear response has been tightly conserved in evolution , and probably follows much the same pattern in humans and other vertebrates

According to LeDoux,he and others are making progress in tracing the brain circuitry underlying the fear response.Research attention is now focused on the amygdala, a small almond-shaped structure deep inside the brain. A portion of the amygdala known as the lateral nucleus appears to play a key a role in fear conditioning -- an experimental procedure in which an animal--is taught to fear a harmless stimulus such as a sound tone. The conditioning is accomplished by pairing the tone with a mild electrical shock to the animal's foot .After a few times 'the animal comes to exhibit defensive responses whenever it hears the tone. These response include freezing(remainig motionless)and elevation of blood pressure
